Brave new Swing is not a dance studio.
‘Cause social dancing is a cultural pleasure and not a sport – and it therefore belongs in bars and ballrooms rather than in gyms. You won’t learn to dance just in class, but you will for sure develop class on the dance floor – whilst having fun! And a drink…
That’s why Brave new Swing teaches where the party is: Anna hosts her weekly event ‘Die Blaue Stunde‘ with live music each and every Tuesday: It’s a party in its truest sense – you don’t need to know how to partner dance to enjoy yourself! But believe it: dancing is a lot of fun. And you can learn it each Tuesday just before the party starts…
In these classes everybody – no matter the gender – learns to lead and follow, so that everyone can join the fun. With or without partner.
Anna speaks proper german. And english. And so are the classes.
This website is in english to make sure everybody understands…
At Brave new Swing you can learn all kinds of swing dances – but mostly Balboa. That’s a full body contact swing dance that is danced to rather fast music. It evolved in the 20s in California and was THE thing to do through the 30s up to the 40s – and nowadays all over the planet. It’s the coolest and smoothest dance in the world: very delicate and with slightly crazy footwork. Balboa is super suitable for moving sophisticated or even dead drunk to various types of Jazz and other 4/4 beat music.
And the best thing is that you can learn its basics quite fast – and join Berlins happiest dance parties such as the Tuesdays at Die Blaue Stunde. ‘Cause you don’t learn to dance for being in classes. You learn it to party, meet new friends, drink, laugh and listen to hot and happy live music – and of course: to dance!
But be aware: Your new hobby will eat up your nights!
