Prague Spring Swing Festival – 10th Anniversary

Tuesday, 19th April, 2016

JiveSwing Teachers Joseph & Charlotte, made their way to teach at Prague Swing Swing Festival, in the Czech Republic, to celebrate their 10th year anniversary. 

Hundreds of dancers seemed to come from all over the world, for 3 days of workshops and 3 nights of dancing, in this beautiful city. Other teachers and dancers, from JiveSwing came along too.

There were lots of different dance classes going on simultaneously, during the day, in so many fabulous ballrooms and studio locations, all within reasonable walking distance. There was a great atmosphere, during the evenings, with performances in the AutoKlub by Zig Zag, Bands and lots of vintage stalls, bars etc
