The first Dark Blue Swing was organized in 2014. We expected a decent Saturday swing night but we were surprised by our swing friends from the whole of Moravia, Prague, Vienna, and Krakow. We were taken by the unbelievable energy of the crowd bouncing in the swing rhythm. But with the growing community in Brno, one swing night isn't enough anymore. Today the Dark Blue Swing is the weekend full of dance evenings, parties, and concerts connecting swing dancers throughout the whole Europe. No lessons, no workshops, no hard work. Just having fun, eating, drinking, and listening to great swing and jazz, and dancing till morning.

What will be new this year?

We are slowly aspiring to a dance festival with live music only. There will be more than 50 musicians this year! For the first time, we are also preparing exciting lectures and workshops about swing music - a musicality lesson with live music, and a workshop for Lindy Hop Dj´s. Follow our website, soon we will give you more information!

There will not be any classes during this weekend. The important is to have fun, eat and drink, listen to swing and jazz, and dance till morning!

Why Dark Blue Swing?

The name of our event is inspired by a famous Czech song Dark Blue World (Tmavomodrý svět) composed by a Czech jazz legend Jaroslav Ježek. It's a blues song recounting his destiny. Ježek was almost blind - he could only recognize the shades of blue. Despite having problems with his hearing as well, his love for music led him to the career of a professional musician.

One of the famous Czech movies was later also named Dark Blue World. This movie tells a story of Czech RAF pilots during WWII. It's a movie full of inspiring fashion, insight into Czech history, and music by Jaroslav Ježek.

Music can often say what eyes don't see and resonates beyond what ears do hear...
