Top 10 Swing Dance Camps in the UK

  1. 1. TOP 10 swing dance camps in the UK
  2. 2. Introduction In this presentation you will discover the top 10 swing dancing camps in the UK. Please note that I do not have extensive knowledge or experience of all the camps in the UK to make a proper judgement, therefore, this is only my personal opinion. If your organised camp is not included in this list, chances are, I have not been there before. To avoid this you can always invite me to try your camp out and review it on my blog. Furthermore to avoid any arguments regarding which camp is better than the other, I will list all the camps in alphabetical order. I did not include one-day festivals or exchanges, only proper swing dance camps. Without further ado, let’s begin!
  3. 3. 600 Minutes of Swing A weekend in the beautiful St Andrews with 2 days of great socials and 3 nights of parties. When: April, every year. Location: St. Andrews, Fife, United Kingdom Experience: I have not been here before but I hope to come and have a blast in 2016! http://www.600minutesofswing.com/
  4. 4. Camp Savoy A weekend featuring amazing teachers line- up, 2 days and 3 nights of parties. Sunday is usually themed night. When: August, every year Location: Guildford, Surrey, United Kingdom Experience: I was there in 2014 and 2015 and I always had a brilliant time. So much learnt in such little time! Amazing! http://www.campsavoy.com/
  5. 5. DJam What’s better than dancing your socks off in cold winter month? Nothing! Djam is great camp packed with 3 days of classes and 4 nights of social dancing with top international teachers line-up. When: January, every year Location: Durham, Durham, United Kingdom Experience: I went there with a bunch of friends in 2014. It was my first camp and I truly enjoyed the classes and dancing. This is what hooked me up with dance camps and such! http://www.dance-at-djam.co.uk/
  6. 6. Goodnight Sweetheart An amazing weekend in Hertfordshire with great teachers and amazing socials for Valentine’s day. When: February, each year Location: Watford, Hertfordshire, UK Experience: I went to GNSH in 2015 and I had a fabulous time. I learned quite a lot but this camp is not as big as it used to be mainly due to location change (from Hertford to Watford). I enjoyed it nevertheless. http://www.gnsh.co.uk/
  7. 7. Hullzapoppin’ Very relaxing but at the same time quite intense weekend in Hull. Lovely and friendly community that welcomes everybody, this is a must before summer camps! When: May, every year Location: Kingston upon Hull, Yorkshire, UK Experience: I went there in 2014 when they were based in the massive Endsleigh Mercy centre – I would get outside during launch break to chill. Great classes and socials, truly amazing weekend. http://www.hullzapoppin.co.uk/
  8. 8. London Swing Festival One of the largest European camps in the capital of England – London. Top international teachers with great and intensive classes followed by social dancing to live bands. Need I say more? When: May, every year Location: London, United Kingdom Experience: I went in 2014 and 2015. In the latter year I went only for social dancing which was great. I wish I had taken classes also. They were impressive I heard! http://www.londonswingfestival.com/
  9. 9. Maytime Mess Around Great weekend with not too large crowd of great dancers. You get 2 days of amazing classes and 3 nights of parties in big enough hall for your swing outs. When: May, every year Location: Titchfield, Hampshire, UK Experience: I went there in 2014 and it was my 4th big event and I had a real blast. They had some international teachers and I learned a lot of Charleston and lindy hop stuff. I had real blast dancing with such an awesome and friendly community in South of England. http://thelindyclub.co.uk/thelindyclub.co.uk/ MMA.html
  10. 10. Swing Revolution A weekend of great dancing among students and other people. Great classes and social dancing, what more could you wish for? When: March, every year Location: Leeds, Yorkshire, United Kingdom Experience: I went there in 2015 and I had a real blast. I was learning not just from local UK instructors but also from some international teachers as well! http://swingrevolution.co.uk/
  11. 11. Swingfest London Londoners are really spoilt with events and camps that London has to offer! Swingfest London is South London’s swing festival that offers 2 days of great classes and 3 nights of amazing socials. When: March, every year Location: London, United Kingdom Experience: I have not been here before but I know Swingland (guys who run this event) and I always enjoy their regular social dancing nights especially when bands play live. I hope to see you there in 2016. http://www.swingfest.org.uk/
  12. 12. University of Swing University of Swing is a lovely weekend with amazing classes and socials at the heart of Scotland – Edinburgh. While not dancing, why not explore the beautiful city? When: February, every year Location: Edinburgh, United Kingdom Experience: I have not been here before but I heard that Edinburgh’s swing scene is phenomenal and very friendly. I couldn’t agree more as I know a few dancers from there. http://universityofswing.com/
