[19:45-21:00, Orchestra Room] “Doin the Jive”

The choreography for the song "Doing the Jive", developed in Seattle to celebrate recordings by The Careless Lovers -single of the same name. Attractive and interesting rhythm- can be a perfect complement to the well-known Shim Sham!
[19:45-21:00, Hostel Giraffe]„Blues for Beginners”

Learn the essentials of connection, pulse, and movement. A "must attend" class for anyone who wants to get the most out of the Blues After-parties

Live music with BOBA JAZZ BAND :)
After midnight, check also the Orchestra room (2nd floor) for some BLUES dancing.
Side Rooms, Warm Meals & Blues in the Night
Dragon Swing Starts tomorrow, and not only are we giddy with anticipation, but we are ready to bring you more!
There will be two side rooms for dancing on Thursday and Friday night - so if the main room gets too crowded, or if you want to change gears and blues dance then you have a place to go! One room will be downstairs by the kitchen, and the other upstairs in the Orchestra Room.
Like last year, the bar at the Kolejarz Culture House will be selling drinks, snacks and sandwiches all day and night... but we have decided to up the ante - and now the kitchen downstairs will be open on Thursday and Friday! This means that you can grab a hot meal during the party without stepping out into the frigid cold.
Green Dragon Competition closed - we have the winners!
After long deliberations our jury finally made their choice. Of the four videos sended to us they chose a choreography made by Peter Kepic and Pavlina Grombirikova! The winners receive a Full Pass for the Dragon Swing 2013 and an opportunity to teach their routine during the festival.
Congratulation to Pavlina & Peter and we are looking forward to see you guys in November!
Solo Track Added!
Due to the high registration rate, and interest in more class options, we have decided to add a Solo Track in addition to our Lindy Hop offerings! That is 12 hours of intensive work on your solo dancing. Leading the roster for this new offering we have the beautiful Giedre Palpaityte .
Any dancers who are currently signed up for the Lindy Hop workshops or on the waiting list can transfer to this track by sending an e-mail with "Solo Track" in the subject line to the e-mail address from which you received your registration confirmation.
We are excited about this expansion, and we will be announcing the other teachers for the solo track in conjunction with the announcement of our 4th teaching couple shortly. We encourage all participants in this track to participate in the Solo Charleston competition.
