You can see a tram on the flyer of Swinging Spring. Why? Because we have a special voyage with an old tram from classes to party on Sunday. The tram has a special route through the city and also we can dance on the tram! The party was held at Forum where they have the local dance classes and parties during the year.
Also with this gallery I finished the Swinging Spring 2008 series. I’ll continue with Barswingona 2008 pictures!
We had the big party on Saturday. Besides the live music, dress-up party and spectacular building we also had a great dinner. During the dinner we could learn some local custom. Brave enough foreign dancers also could join local dancers singing Swedish songs. Well I sticked to take pictures – I think it was the best decision for everyone :)
I continue with Swinging Spring event. This series show classes we had during Saturday and Sunday. I think it is better for the teachers to work with a group longer. So I liked that we had double classes with all teachers. The first two pictures show the Welcome ceremony (Saturday morning) and the last five ones show the Closing ceremony (Sunday afternoon). Usually teachers have some dance at camp closing for slow music however here the organisers tried to trick them. As you can see they “failed” – and we had much fun!
I do photograph many different topics. However for the following 2 two weeks I’ll upload dancing pictures – as lots of people are waiting for them. Now I add picture from an other dance camp: Swinging Spring, Gothenburg, Sweden! One of the biggest swing dance camp in Europe: around 500 dancers for a weekend! I have been the official photographer here.
