SWING THE ABBEY
TRACKS & CLASSES

For the third edition of Swing The Abbey festival, we wanted to bring you back to dancing and back to the roots of the Swing Dance. Our International teachers from Paris, Ghent, Tours and Arlon are going make you rediscover the authentic and fun side of Lindy Hop and Solo Jazz. On top of that we have Tebby from Arlon who will amaze you with some African Groove with live musicians.

Please try to register in the appropriate track, fitting the descriptions below. There will be interesting material to learn in every track!
