From the 20th to the 22th of March 2020 Lisbon will be dancing the Blues for the second time.
Known as the city of seven hills, Lisbon has a old world atmosphere and a light that delights photographers and filmmakers alike. With an international vibe but still a small town feel Lisbon has an enchanting allure that invites us to enjoy life. This event is very intimate and family-like, full of heart and oh, so full of the Blues!
Special note! Swing Station is the organizer of Atlantic Blues, the Bues Festival in Porto. In 2019 we decided to give a year's rest to our festival. Due to that, we could fulfill an old longstanding dream and organize a Blues Exchange in Lisbon. This year we have come to the conclusion that we had to reevaluate Atlantic Blues, so Lisbon Blues will have its second edition in 2020!!!
Swing Station is a dance school and production company based around vintage dances from the United States. Founded in September of 2012, it grew out of the project Lindy Hop Portugal initiated by the Californian transplant, Abeth Farag, in 2007.
With a current team of 9 teachers, Swing Station runs regular Lindy Hop, Balboa, Blues, Vintage Jazz, Solo Blues, Collegiate Shag and Tap classes in Lisbon, in addition to organizing frequent workshops with both local and international teachers. It also organizes regular events including practice sessions and parties as well as exhibitions.
