Stockamöllan Swingfestival & Dance Camp 15th - 17th of June 2012
Gunhild Carling, our own godess of swing, will enchant this summer by arranging another eagerly awaited swing festival. In addition to inviting the elite among swing musicians, she has invited the famous dance performance group, Harlem Hot Shots, who will entertain at nights and give dance workshops during the days.
Visiting the festival for evening concerts and social dance is SEK360-420 per night. Those who wish to participate in the workshops, and are willing to follow a 1920’s -1940’s dress code (during the nights), are offered a wonderful package of classes, evening dances and camping for only SEK 950 for the full weekend. The condition is that you pre-register and pay in advance to Bankgiro 5651-5828 (HepTown). Visitors from abroad may pay at arrival, but note that the registration is binding.
Harlem Hot Shots will be back to give you the very best of Lindy Hop and some authentic jazz. You will be able to register to four different levels, and will then be able to attend four classes including that level.
How to get there by car: You can reach Stockamöllan from road 13 between Höör and Eslöv. At Hasslebro, where the road crosses Rönne Å, follow the signs to Billinge, which will lead you to Stockamöllan.
Public transport: There will be buses driving regularly during the festival between Stockamöllan and Stehag, where you can continue by train to Malmö eller Höör.
