Slow Dance Session

An hour with dimmed lights and slow DJ music at the end of a swing evening, usually from 23.00-24.00 on a Friday. The focus is on slow jazz och blues music but even a few songs from other styles, for example soul, can be played during this hour.

Balboa Session and Balboa Café

Balboa session is an hour with fast DJ music at the end of a swing evening, usually from 23.00 – 24.00 on a Friday. Balboa Café is a longer event of several hours, usually starting off with a Balboa introduction. Fast music is perfect for those who dance Balboa, but also fun for those who want to dance faster Lindy Hop.

Swingum Summit

A weekend filled with parties and courses with internationally acclaimed teachers invited from outside Umeå.

The event usually includes social dances on both Friday and Saturday evening and an afternoon tea dance on Sunday. However, we don’t usually include beginners introductions at these social dances.

This fabulous weekend event is arranged from time to time, sometimes even twice per year, with different themes and happenings every time!

Swing it on Tuesdays or Thursdays!

We often arrange practice dance sessions on Tuesdays or Thursdays from 20.00 – 22.00 for Swingum members and Swingum course participants. These events usually take place at Umeå Folkets Hus.

This event is sometimes arranged as a training session with DJ music and an instructor on site to help you perfect your technique.

Alternatively, this event is sometimes arranged as a social dance with DJ music, where you can dance with a partner or practice your solo moves.
