Want to see the topics? Look no further.

“Let loose with the blues”
That moment when the slowing down of your swing out leads to the land of the unbearably awkward. Ever been there? If so, we’ll show you the way out – to the land of that sweet blues.

Lotte Suijker & Piotr Borowian

 

“Say What?”
How to turn you social dancing into playful conversations.

Martin Lasthein & Minou Ericson

“Taking time to glide”
In this class, we’ll work on one of Frankie Manning’s favourite techniques. Gliding is essentially dancing in close position with lots of subtleties. The focus will be on learning to appreciate taking the time off simple movements together in the moment. 

Liane Limon & Thomas Noguer

“Festival Starter Kit”
(This workshop is only for participants with the Festival Starter Kit Pass): In the workshop, you will get tips and techniques on how to feel comfortable and shine on the dance floor. Additionally, you will meet like-minded people and together, after the workshop, you can dance the night away to two of the best live swing bands in Europe. 

Stine Harrekilde & Allan Schmidt

“Personally Awesome Musicality”
Level up your partner dancing by developing your musicality! Explore the ways to express your voice through rhythm and connection, and discover how to add it into the partnership without interrupting your flow!

Laura Knight & Sarah Spoon

“Free up your footwork”
In this class, we are going to focus on exercise to learn to play freely with your steps regardless of the moves you do.

Liane Limon & Thomas Noguer

“Gourmet close embrace: the recipe”
When cooked well, close embrace can be nothing short of a delicious feast where the main course is pure bliss. W
e’ll share a simple recipe for a gourmet close embrace, as well as some practical tips on how to avoid over/under cooking and other half-baked attempts.

Lotte Suijker & Piotr Borowian
