What is Swing Fastival?

A fabulously, fun weekend focusing on the faster swing dances... 


Friday 8th - 10th November 2019


Stephen Sayer and Fancy Dougherty, and Andreas Olsson and Olga Marina


Livermead Cliff Hotel, Torquay


£255 for the whole weekend including bed, breakfast and evening meals for two nights

8 hours of workshops as well as taster classes with top international teachers, evening dances (live band on Saturday), and Sunday afternoon tea dance.

If accepted a £25 deposit will secure your place.

** Bookings will open on Tuesday 3rd May at 9am **

This fun relaxed weekender is dedicated to classes in Collegiate Shag, with International instructors Stephen Sayer & Fancy Dougherty. There will also be streams for All Balboa, as well as 50/50 Collegiate Shag and Balboa. Balboa workshops will be taught by the immensely popular Andreas Olsson and Olga Marina

The weekend is aimed at Collegiate Shaggers who have been dancing to at least an improver level and beyond, as there will be no beginner classes. Balboa dancers will need to be at intermediate or above level.

If you feel your energy reserves may not hold out for the weekend, fear not.... the teaching emphasis will be on the technique and style for these faster swing dances.

A whole weekend of Collegiate Shag. Go on… you know you want to.…
