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.

Bands & DJs

Outstanding swing bands and swing DJs are waiting for you:

  • Cats & Dinosaurs from Sweden
  • Meny Wappler Swingtett from Hamburg/Lübeck/Wismar
  • DJ Niel from Cologne

Dance classes

The event is a dance party event, similar to an exchange. Nevertheless, we would like to offer dance classes by dancers, for dancers. During the registration process, you can indicate whether you would like to participate in dance classes or maybe offer dance classes, because you are a dance teacher in your scene. We will then get in contact with you. There will be at least 4h of dance classes for level beginner, intermediate and advanced. Shortly before the start of the event, we will publish a workshop schedule.

4h Balboa Beginner Level
4h Balboa Intermediate Level
4h Balboa Advanced Level
