Organized Social Activities and Parties
Swingin‘ R starts on Friday, but in case you already want to come to town a day earlier – Thursday is a public holiday – you have the possibility to warm up your feet and get in the mood for the weekend on Thursday evening.
The Warm-Up Dancing takes place at the Tiki Beat Bar & Club, and the admission to this party is free!
Guided City Tour
Regensburg with its medieval old town has lots of interresting places and sites to visit. Join the professionally Guided City Tour on Friday afternoon and see where the people lived, danced, and played music back in those days! The city tour starts at the Degginger and is in English.
Friday Party – The Swinging Sounds
The Friday Party takes place at the Tiki Beat Bar & Club.
Exactly there, the revival of Swing music and Lindy Hop dancing in Regensburg has started more than four years ago, and monthly Swing events still push it forward.
Just the right place to warm up and start into our Lindy Exchange weekend! DJ Swingy the Kid and DJ Mark Brooks will play the Swinging Sounds for you to heat up your feet!
Even more, the party comes with a free Musicality Taster Class!
Saturday Party – Swing’n’Blues
The Saturday Party takes place at the Degginger and is dedicated to Swing’n’Blues!
According to this motto, two remarkable bands play their live music like in a Juke Joint: the busking Andis Bluesorchester, with their Pre-War Blues, Ragtime and String Band sound, and Ohne Franz, with their nice repertoire of Swing and Jazz tunes. DJ Swingy the Kid and DJ Swingheini will also take care that danceable music never stops!
Let’s Swing’n’Blues all the night long!
Sunday Swing Brunch
You danced that weekend at the parties, the workshops or on the city places, you don’t want to stop on Sunday, but you feel hungry? No worries, the Sunday Swing Brunch gives you both, delicious food and the opportunity to keep on dancing! The Degginger team offers a regional buffet and the DJs keep you in the right mood.
Swinging like Sunday morning!
Workshop and Taster Classes
We do not want to bother you with standard workshop topics, so we arranged again some nice classes with various music-related topics and fun stuff for you, to enjoy your Swingin‘ R experience even more!
Musicality Taster Class (All Levels)
This Taster Class led by DJ Swingy the Kid is about how Jazz, Swing, and Blues music has changed through the years and how the styles of music and dance have evolved accordingly. With this class, you will get some more ideas how to adapt your personal style of dancing to the style of music being played – listen, learn, and dance!
The Taster Class is held at the Friday Party and is included in the party price.
Footwork Variations (Beg/Int+)
Sara and William show you how to add even more fun in your personal dancing by showing you tips and tricks how to dance with the right flow and coolness according to the music, and adding fun and easy stuff to your social dancing repertoire.
Fast’n’Slow Feet (Int+)
Most of the time in our Lindy life, we dance our figures, footwork patterns, spins, turns, and so on to music with moderate tempo. But in this workshop, Sara and William improve your technical skills and work with the two kinds of songs which are usually the most difficult to dance to: The really fast and really slow songs…
Even More Activities
Craft Beer Festival
The Regensburg Craft Beer Festival takes place at the Neupfarrplatz from 29.05. – 31.05.2019. The festival offers the opportunity to get introduced to more than 50 different Craft Beer styles and to learn about beer as cultural asset and heritage.
Live bands and food trucks complete the festival feeling – often very danceable..
Walhalla Chill-Out Dancing
It is one of the most classical tourist activities around Regensburg: A tour to the Walhalla on Sunday!
A trip by boat is really nice, however, you have to climb quite a lot of stairs to finally get to the Walhalla. You can also go there by car and skip most of the stairs. However, once upstairs you can enjoy the fantastic view – and in case someone brings music, why not dance? Or what about a group picture with this great scenery?
What the heck? Why should you run 42.195 km if you can dance that distance?
No offense, but true..
Only to notice that the Regensburg Marathon is actually on Sunday morning and the course is led directly through the old town near the Degginger. Feel free to dance some Solo Jazz or Swing Out somewhere nearby that course on your way to the Swing Brunch. Or maybe a spontaneous Flashmob?
