Levels

You’ve just started? You’ve only been dancing for 6 months? You’ve been dancing for years?
There’s something for everyone:

I’m not sure which level to choose.

This is the idea we’ve got for the levels. We’re sure you’re going to learn anyway, but our advice would be to choose the level carefully.

If the classes are alike, you’ll get more out of them!

Intermediate

Minimum knowledge to enter this level:

You can dance with different tempos. The swing out is within your comfort zone and you begin to experiment in your dance with rhythmic variations. Jazz solo is not a stranger to you.

Minimum time dancing: from 6 months to 1 year and a half.

If you are a student at the school and you have finished P4 or do intermediate, this is your level.

Not at the moment, but we do not rule out opening a Solo Jazz group, depending on the demand. If you are interested, write us an email to info@springandswing.com.

A few weeks before the Festival, we will enable a way for you to share a car. We will get in touch with people who have a car and places to take someone, and people who would like to arrive by car from Barcelona or Girona.

If you go by PUBLIC TRANSPORT, there is the number 1 bus that leaves from Barcelona airport or from Estació del Nord, and stops at Platja d'Aro.
