It was a hard time for swing musicians and artists in Berlin! Stay optimist and support our project! We bring the vibes of swing parties back! For this, we'll start with a cultural program dedicated to masters of the swing era. And yes... it is gonna also be possible to join and dance in real life!
In this project, we're gonna create a cultural program dedicated to masters of the Swing Era: Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Teddy Wilson. You can dance from home but few dancers will be also allowed to attend the event (with special restrictions due to the covid-19-situation).

No tickets at the door! ⚠ Couple dancing only for people from the same household ⚠ Switching partner isn’t allowed. ⚠ Dancing only in squares on the ground with 3 meters social distancing ⚠ Mouth protection required when moving out of the dancing squares and 1,5 meters social distancing ⚠ Basic information in case of Covid-Infection required (Name, Address, Phone number)
