Bristol Swing Festival 2017

Bristol Swing Festival is a unique Lindy Hop and Circus collaboration which sells out every year. It opens for bookings on: Thursday 1st December at 17.00 UTC What you say: "Bristol Swing Festival is one of the best events I\'ve been to. Not only were the swing lessons terrific, detailed, and fun, just being able to try out some of the wonderful circus skills made it memorable beyond words. All the people were wonderful, inviting, and kind, and I had some brilliant dances. Woo Bristol!" What we say: - A blend of Lindy Hop and Circus skills from a team of 50+ teachers. After the main Lindy workshops, the taster classes are in circus skills from stilts to aerial trapeze, juggling to clowning. - You learn alongside your teachers. The initial concept was of an exchange of skills, and we ask all out teachers to join in as students, so your Lindy teachers will learn Circus with you, and your Circus teachers will learn Lindy with you. - It\'s still intimate and personal. There\'s a marked rise in the super-festivals of 500-1000+ participants, but for us these can start to be a little impersonal and it\'s easy to feel a bit lost. We keep to a few hundred so you can still (just!) get to mix with everyone. - The stunning cabarets are a blend of Circus and Lindy Hop, a concept we took to the Edinburgh Festival last year for a successful run of 35 shows! - It takes place in Bristol, one of the friendliest, and most welcoming dance scenes around. Just ask anyone who has visited, and visited, and visited.... Teaching team: L2: Ryan & Lana L3: Sharon & (tbc) L2 Savoy Intensive: Ben & Michaela L1: Cat & Cam Beginners: Rob & Tina Solo Jazz Advanced: Trisha Sewell Solo Jazz Intermediate: (tbc - we\'re waiting on room confirmation) See you on the dance floor / tight wire / tumbing mat ...... David & Stephen The website is now live with more details: www.bsf.co.uk Sales will be via Eventbrite - with a link from the website - and this year the ticket price includes all fees.
