Swing Summit is only open for intermediate to advanced dancers. What is important to us is that you are here because you want to improve, to learn the nitty-gritty of technique and get geeky, especially because we think that there are not that many opportunities anymore where you can do this. Almost every scene offer beginners classes, this is why we only focus on intermediate to advanced dancers.
The camp is designed as a small workshop with a maximum of approximately 50 people per week. Because there are only 8-10 couples per class (and level), the camp has very personal feel. You will know almost everyone by the end of it.

No, you can register alone for the camp but as in most workshops, there may be a waiting list depending on the L/F ratio. Signing up as a group or with a partner increases your chance to get a spot.
During the main classes we will rotate partners as usual.
Yes, definitely. If you have a preference, you can mention that in our registration questionnaire.
Payment is made in two parts, workshop first, accommodation and board a bit later. More info here.
The accommodation and classes are in the same place – you are never more than 80 meters away from a dance floor.
Please see the description here.
There are snakes, boars, deers and other animals that naturally exist in forests – at the camp you will mostly see spiders and other insects. In over 10 years we have still not encountered anything we needed to be extra careful about. Naturally, after you take a hike in the woods make sure you check yourself for ticks. Although you might find one or two spiders in the corners of your houses, these are all harmless and often function as natural fly traps.
Yes, there are dogs, cats (kittens!) and chickens (not for dinner but often at dinner 😉 ). However, no animals are allowed into the houses.
Remember that the location is very remote, there is no supermarket or a pharmacy. The nearest ‘civilisation’ is a short drive away. We run a little shop with extra snacks, meat, toiletries and so on but make sure you bear that in mind. However, we do go to the shop a couple of times a week and therefore are able to get stuff in emergencies / on request.
The first registrations will be filtered according to matching levels and diversity in nationality.
