BalTic Summer Swing 2023

The BalTic Summer Swing first took place in 2018 and was repeated with overwhelming success in 2019 and 2022. We are now running the event again in its 4th edition! The three-day weekend event is dedicated to the vintage swing dance Balboa. But, of course, you can dance anything that fits swing music! From Friday till Sunday, each day there will be a beach party with outstanding swing bands and swing DJs. Saturday night is the big Gala Party at the Dock Inn. Saturday and Sunday during the daytime there will be dance workshops for beginner as well as experienced Balboa dancers. You can also enjoy some summer sun at the beautiful beach, swim, and explore the city of Warnemünde, with its fine fish restaurants, bars, cafes and small boutiques. Then, late into the evenings, you can join the swing parties!


The event will take place in Warnemünde/Rostock, Germany. The main event location is the amazing WAL Beach Bar in Warnemünde. There will be beach partys every day! The Saturday gala party will be in the beautifully designed hotel lobby of the Dock Inn which won first place in the German Tourism Award 2017. The hotel has reserved around 70 beds in double rooms and multi-bed dorms for the event.
