Get ready for a Taste of SwingDom
Maybe you’ve missed it, but it’s going to be a banger! In less than a month you can get a Taste of SwingDom during our two-day Easter festival! Taste of SwingDom (7-8 April) will have two nights of live music, taster classes and a special Saturday Easter hunt. Eleanor will perform on Friday and Leigh, Duncan and Hue will join us on Saturday. You can register on our here, and the Facebook event page can be found here.
Also make sure to mark down 12-15 October to make sure you’re in town for the ‘real’ SwingDom festival. You can follow all updates on the SwingDom socials (Instagram and Facebook) or via the SwingDom website.
What is a Taste of Swingdom without some tasters???
On Friday Viktor Lillard and Teodora Kasabova will teach an intermediate+ workshop! Viktor is a visiting dancer from the US who has been teaching in Amsterdam. He got into contact with Lindy Hop in 2013 in Ohio and continued to spread the joy of swing dancing ever since. He has great knowledge of jazz music and deepens his connection with the historical and cultural roots of Swing by studying Black American social dance. Teodora is one of the main faces of Amserdam’s Swing Philosophy. In her teaching she shows her students that anyone can dance, and guides them to get there. Want to see them in action?
The Saturday beginners taster will be provided by our local talents Sanne and Thijs. Sanne is our Swing in Utrecht chair and has been dancing both as lead and follow for years. Her personal style and understanding of both roles gives her a deeper understanding of connection and allows her to give spot-on feedback to students. Thijs does not only dance swing to Jazz music, his creative attitude also results in applying lindy moves to various music styles. He started teaching in the Utrecht scene after the pandemic and is eager to help others connect to their own movement.
