Hi Swing-spirited People  


The Covid-19/Coronavirus has strongly impacted the Swing dance events scene an dours is no exception: so, we wanted to give you an update on the status of the Spirit of Swing Festival during this uncertainty period.

We’re intending for The Spirit of Swing Festival to happen as planned (the festival isn’t until beginning of June and we hope that this terrible epidemic will subside very soon).

However, our top priority is the health and safety of any attendee to this 1st event and of course of everyone.

So, we monitor the situation from our homes on a daily basis and we will decide what to do in the coming weeks with others volunteers and partners on the basis of the epidemic evolution and health official oganizations recommendations.

We’re hoping that this great morale booster that is the Swing Spirit (would it be on film, in music and of course in dance) is with you already and if not we will share posts about our progress, our festival, our partners to help you get or keep a high Swing Spirit.

For now, our team of volunteers works posters and cultural exhibitions.

We keep on being excited and keep up the good work to be ready for The Spirit of Swing to rise among everyone here in Aix en Provence !
