A fine selection of some of the best swing dancers in the world will be dropping in from the United States, France, Sweden, Japan, Italy, and Slovenia. A dream team of twenty-one superstars all set for a spectacular week of swing and rock’n’roll. The Summer Jamboree Dance Camp returns to Senigallia (Marche – AN) with an international line-up of world-class professionals for all the dance-mad, mildly curious, and everyone in between!

The teachers lined-up for the SJDC 2019 are really something to brag about. They are competition winners, cultural and historical experts, seasoned performers, masters of style and technique, and second to none in delivering unforgettably joyous lessons. Without doubt they are figureheads of the international scene: Todd Yannacone USA, Peter Loggins USA, Fredrik & Mimmi SWE, Isabella Gregorio ITA & Pontus Persson SWE, old favourites Jay Cee & Marie FRA, Aaron Dunmore USA, Katja Završnik SLO, Lizette Rönnqvist SWE, Markus Rosendal SWE, Miss Dee FRA, Moe Sakan JAP, Paolo Lanna USA & Katharina Zeller ITA, Rasmus & Tove SWE, Steve & Fancy USA, and Vincenzo Fesi ITA. Don’t miss your chance to see some of these spectacular performers grace the main stage on Saturday 3 August for your viewing pleasure.

This year, the Summer Jamboree Dance Camp features seven different disciplines: Boogie Woogie, Lindy Hop, Jive, Balboa, Solo Tap (aka Tip Tap to the Italians), Collegiate Shag, and Solo Jazz. Seven styles that can be put into practice and seen on the dancefloors throughout the Festival during the live concerts, at the after-parties at the Rotonda, and to DJ sets that pump the city full of music all week long.

The Dance Camp is divided into 3 locations; the Rotonda a Mare, the Foyer of the Teatro la Fenice, and the stage of the Teatro la Fenice. Lessons take place at all three locations from 11.10 to 17.50 every day from 3 to 10 August, catering to three levels of expertise: beginner, intermediate and advanced.

The Summer Jamboree Dance Camp, which continues to grow each year in quality as well as quantity, has become a real highlight of the Festival and a big draw for fans coming from all over Europe, and even Australia and America. Places book up quickly even before the Dance Camp starts, some days becoming ‘sell-out’ events. ‘Swing dance fever’ is spreading like wildfire and is as rife now as never before, and the Summer Jamboree Dance Camp 2019 presents the tastiest occasion of the year for dance-hungry fans. With the “crème de la crème” of international teachers available to dancers of all levels for a whole week, you can take notes in their lessons, or be infused and inspired by their energy and acumen on the dancefloor.
