Rock That Swing Festival – Munich, Germany

Ever since it began in Munich, Germany in 2006, the Rock That Swing Festival has been all about Swing. To begin with, the festival shows the versatility of Swing dance and Swing music with competitions, demonstrations, and workshops. Not only that but by targeting the decades of the 1920s-1950s, we’re guaranteed a whole lot of great dancing.

The Rock That Swing Festival or RTSF, focuses on dances with history, like Swing, Balboa, Shag, Lindy Hop, Boogie Woogie, Charleston, and Rockabilly. To be sure, with all those dances, they need a host of musicians and teachers. And, in fact, the most recent festival was held in February 2020 and featured 15 Swing bands and 76 professional instructors.

If you think Rock That Swing Festivals sound like fun, you’ll love this Dance Safari post, “Electro Swing…Funky Feel-Good Music“.

I love to study Swing dancing by watching videos online. In fact, many of the best have the Rock That Swing logo. With so many performances to choose from, here’s one I think you’ll love. For this reason, check out this awesomely smooth Swing from the RTSF 2019 festival. It’s performed by Stephen Sayer and his partner Chanzie Roettig Gomez.

Stephen and Chanzie are champion Swing dance instructors, competitors, and performers from Los Angeles, CA. They’re dancing to Twisting the Night Away by Sam Cooke.

I don’t know about you, but I find their style to be charming, playful, and fun. I’ve never seen them before last night, but I’ve already watched this Rock That Swing video many times. You’d do well to find a way to express yourself like they do.

  1. Awesome post, but what the heck kind of WordPress settings are you on? I had to click through three snippets of your post, before I actually got to read the full content.

      • Problem solved! It’s a WordPress quirk. I just recently switched to using the Reader, on my Mobile app, rather than getting everybody’s blog posts by email. The reader was only used for giving people Likes and comments. I hadn’t used it for reading posts in a year or so. Not too Long ago, I remember being able to just tap on the post snippet, end it took me directly to the full content of the post. Browsing through the reader, this morning, I realized that a lot of bloggers’—but not all my followed bloggers’—posts Took extra steps to get to. Now when I tap on the post, in the Reader, I I have two tap on the blogger’s web Address. Then that takes me to all their posts, which are in snip it form. When I tap on the post snippet I want to read, THEN, it’ll let me read the full content. What I don’t get is, for some reason, there was no extra steps to reading the full content on people’s posts, when I was searching around, and exploring what’s out there. Maybe this is just a temporary glitch, I don’t know, but I’m sure now that your settings are probably just fine.
