Join us for the 11th edition of Karlskrona December Swing!


Karlskrona December Swing is an annual workshop and party event focused on swing dancing, normally lindy hop.

This year will be slightly different from previous years, but the friendly and creative learning environment atmosphere will be the same

This year the workshop will be focusing on solo jazz and how we can apply it also to our partner dancing.

Don't miss out on this full weekend of energetic and fun dancing.


Welcome to Karlskrona December Swing 2019 – Solo jazz edition!


To be able to get the content of the workshop we prefer that you have danced lindy hop or solo jazz or other related dance for one semester or more.

Note: At times, the tempo of the workshop will be challenging.

In one part of the workshop, Ida Björklund (from Karlskrona, Sweden) will teach The Big Apple, a fun and energetic choreography.

You can read more about the background of the Big Apple here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Apple_(dance)


In the other part of the workshop, Mahad Gatti (from London, United Kingdom) will be teaching solo jazz and how it can be applied also to couple dancing.
