For each level, you will have 3 hours of Lindy Hop classes. The classes will take place from Saturday to Sunday afternoon. The schedule will be announced soon. The teachers for the Lindy Hop classes will be Vassiliki and Alex, Tamara and Héctor.
Beginner: You’re a begginer and you’ve never been to a swing festival? Then the BEGINNER TRACK is just for you! Three hours of Lindy Hop classes with international teachers would give you the essence of the festival, but won’t overwhelm you. And you can combine it with one, two, or maybe all three parties – depending on your energy.
Intermediate: You’ve been taking regular Lindy Hop classes for at least 12 months and attended a few local workshops already. This even may not be the first international event for you. You feel comfortable with mixing basic rhythms: groove walks, charleston, triple steps and incorporate some swing-out variations to your dancing. You dance to different tempos: 120 – 180 bpm with ease. You wish to learn more fancy patterns but still feel the need of improving your technique.
Intermediate/Advanced – Advanced: You’ve been dancing Lindy Hop for minimum 18 months – regular classes, attending socials and some local and international workshops. You dance to various tempos: 110 – 200 bpm incorporating different rhythms, patterns and creating your own variations. You’ve probably also tried some other swing dances, like Balboa, Blues or Shag and still are hungry of knowledge and alternative ideas that may improve your dancing skills.
You will have 2x 1,5 hours of Solo jazz classes.
The teachers for the Lindy Hop classes will be Vassiliki or Alex, Tamara or Héctor. The schedule will be announced soon.
LEVEL: You’ve been dancing Solo Authentic Jazz / Solo Charleston for at least 12 months (maybe 6, if you had danced Lindy Hop before). You know the most popular solo routines (including Shim Sham, Tranky Doo, Big Apple – at least till the “London Bridge” ? ). You feel comfortable with your body and do not need a dance partner to hit the dancefloor during the party. You seek new rhytmical challenges and would like to improve your improvisational skills.
You have the opportunity to choose from a variety of theme classes as house dances, solo, musicality etc.. You may find here a detailed description of our theme classes below. Each class is 1,5h long and it’s not part of any track. You can register only for these classes.
*More theme classes will be announced soon

Feminine & United
So first, this class is not focusing on feeling elegant or sensual during the dance. We believe that feminine energies can also mean fierce, sassy or powerful! We will be focusing on exploring how people can express any feminine energy they connect to and dance together. Through ideas and movements from Lindy Hop, Balboa and Solo Jazz. Switch dancing, yes! Solo jamming, yes!
Come to unite with us!
