    Rock That Swing festival

    Munich, Germany

    RockThatSwing_slider-103World of Swing proudly presents the next international Rock That Swing Festival in Munich. The festival celebrates the diversity of the dances and music of the Swing and Rock’n’Roll era from the 20s to the 50s. Over a span of five days, the fantastic dance nights, hot live music, shows, competitions, numerous workshops, and passionate dancers from all over the world create an inspiring and unforgettable atmosphere, unmatched in its variety.

    During the daytime more than 50 of the world’s best teachers offer a vast variety of more than 200 classes. Dancers at any level, from beginners all the way up to teachers, can create their own individual schedule selecting from classes in Lindy Hop, Boogie Woogie, Charleston, Balboa, Shag, Authentic Jazz, Rockabilly Jive, Afro, Blues, and more.

    The 11th edition will again offer a fantastic line-up of the best bands and teachers in great locations, including two nights at the marvelous ballroom of the Deutsches Theater in the city center of Munich. Additionally the organizers and dance icons Marcus & Bärbl will celebrate the 25th anniversary of their partnership.

    I will be a special guest DeeJay during the weekend and really looking forward to returning to Rock That Swing!
