BarSWINGona festival was created by Carmen & Lluís on may 1998 and has been run by the barSWINGona team which has been continuously renovated. BarSWINGona main party dates are March 28th, 29th, 30th & 31th at the fabulous Casino de l’Aliança del Poblenou, that will be the major dance hall of the BarSWINGona’13.
Since the beginning, BarSWINGona purpose has been to allow dancers from everywhere share the passion for swing dancing and music with people from Barcelona and the rest of the world.
BarSWINGona is a not-for-profit event although the budget has been consistently increasing every year. Some years the festival did quite well whereas some others it did not and needed some private support to survive. BarSWINGona is struggling to get public support and private sponsors as well with just minor successes so far.
BarSWINGona is a bunch of lindy hoppers from Barcelona and other communities that are working as hard to make BarSWINGona an unforgettable swing event for you.
The organization also offers the possibility to enroll in short, but intense courses to learn dancing swing.
The courses are organized in many levels to avoid mixing dance levels in the same class and guarantee a progressive work in class. There will be auditions associated to each level. All classes will focus on steps and technique for Social dancing of lindy hop except one that will work on a lindy hop routine that will be danced by those who wish to do so in the final swing party. All levels, but the beginners one, will get all the Lindy hop Masters. Each couple of teachers will develop the steps in their own personal style. Each level will get 3 classes a day of these top couple teachers, therefore you’ll get 9 track classes in total. In addition there are Open classes that you can take. All info on the official webpage of Barswingona Festival.
