I never taught people where to step on '2', because when I learned how to dance there was no '2'. We just danced to the music.
The statement from Frankie Manning emphasizes where swing dancing originated in the first place - not in dancing classes in a studio, but on the dancefloor of the legendary Savoy Club in New York. Following this tradition we have compiled a ground-solid and splendid party schedule which complements the dancing classes provided during the day.

The workshop parties which take place on friday evening at Dresden's "Savoy Club" and on saturday evening at "Feldschlösschen Stammhaus" allow you for heating the dancefloor at both locations using your pre-workshop and newly acquired dancing moves.



DJ Mister Swing

DJ Mister Swing aka André Buchheim grew up with the music of the golden swing era. As a great lover of the music of the 20s to 40s, he has collected a considerable collection of swing music - essentially original shellac records ("they just sound better!"). Through his profound music know-how in the field of swing and his swing dance experience, he always finds the right "tune" on swing parties and knows how to excite swing dancers with danceable music.
