Swingum is a dance association that makes it possible for Umeå residents to dance the swing dances Lindy Hop, Authentic Jazz, Balboa, Step and Collegiate Shag. Our greatest focus is on Lindy Hop – a swing dance from the 1930s Harlem, New York which is danced by people of all ages and all over the world. Read more about our dances!
Swingum continuously organizes courses and evenings with social dancing, as well as opportunities to try a free Lindy Hop beginners crash-course in connection with the “Swing evenings” or “Lindy Hop Live”. The courses we offer are given from beginner level to advanced level. We organize several different types of courses including weekly courses, weekend courses, intensive courses, workshops and annual events!
Swingum offers a variety of various social dance evenings. We dance to fun swing music from the 20s, 30s and 40s. Evenings with live bands are called “Lindy hop live”. During the Swing evenings we dance to DJ and sometimes we have slow dance sessions or a Balboa hour in connection with these.
As a Swingum member, you have an exclusive opportunity to practice your dancing during our training times on Thursdays. We are located in Umeå Folkets Hus and sometimes there is an instructor on site to help you with your training. Become a Swingum member!
