Stomp Stomp & Swingamajic

Swing dance classes alongside Swingamajic

Stomp Stomp 2018 is coming…

A unique swing dance weekend of Lindy Hop/Solo Jazz workshops alongside Swingamajig Festival, 4/5/6 May 2018

Swingamajig, the UK’s largest alternative vintage festival and The Swing Era – Birmingham’s hottest swing dance school are coming together to run a day of dance workshops with a party in the evening!

Whether you are complete beginner or a seasoned dancer there is something for everyone, with 4 ability groups and internationally acclaimed teachers, it is a fantastic opportunity to brush up your moves before heading to Swingamajig Festival.

We also run an open class – Solo Jazz for Electro Swing where we fuse elements of traditional jazz with street dance and everyone is welcome to that class, whatever your level.

The classes are followed by a Party at All Saints Community Centre/Circus Mash in Kings Heath with a live 16 piece swing band, the Jim Wynn Swing Orchestra, and also a dedicated beginners room so whatever your level you can come and join in the fun.
