Ballroom dancing, salsa, flamenco, merengue … the musical styles to move your body are countless. But we are going to stop at a fun dance, the swing, what was born at the time of the Great Depression in the United States as a part of expression of the Afro-American communities of the country.
Those elderly who live in Madrid and want to take their first steps in this fun rhythm, just have to sign up for these dance schools and academies where they will teach you all the secrets of the swing. We have compiled the following.
Swing Maniacs Madrid
The headquarters of this dance school, in the Magdalena street number 9, It is the Madrid journey of Jana and Jordi who have other «branches» of Swing Maniacs (@SwingManiacsMAD) on Barcelona. More than 5 years they have been in the capital teaching these classes of swing, especially in the afternoon.
Do not worry if you are not very given in moving your feet, they have a quarterly introductory course that you can sign up for without having any knowledge of how this musical style is danced.
But not everything is going to be training, since from time to time some nights a week they celebrate parties where the shyest can loosen up a bit more in a more relaxed and relaxed atmosphere with their teammates.Swing Maniacs Madrid

Lack of time or distance to the academy is not an excuse. In this case you have two locations (in Tarragona and Jacometrezo streets) to start taking the first steps in the swing in this center specialized in the different styles that have evolved since this dance was born in the decade of the 20s.
