Aixtraswing: the association
The Spirit of Swing Festival is organized by Aixtraswing, a non-profit association from Aix en Provence.
The association was born in 2014 from the will of a group of friends passionate about Jazz and Lindy hop (couple dance from the 1930s) and always animated by its founders Lila and Louis teachers of the local scene.
The objective of the association: to introduce Dance and Jazz Culture that Swings to as many people as possible!
Aixtraswing teachers and volunteers work all year round to offer association members and the general public the opportunity to create social ties and intergenerational diversity around friendly events:
- Swing dance lessons and workshops
- Discovery initiations to swing dances
- Free dance practices
- Swing balls
- Cabarets sauvages (street dances)
- Conferences and meetings around jazz and of course
