Swing Camp 2018

One of the highlights for all of us at Boogie Back in 2017 was Swing Camp, without a doubt! Four days and three nights at the gorgeous Fynbos Estate olive farm, with daytime classes and activities, live music and swinging tunes in the evenings…

The second annual Swing Camp will be held on 21-24 September 2018. You can look forward to special workshops, small group practices, discussions on swing hot topics, games, videos, bonding, and lots of social dancing.


PLUS, Swing Camp 2018 will feature a special guest teacher: Yana Sanamyantz from Moscow, Russia! Yana is an active swing dancer, performer, teacher and DJ who teaches with Moscow Swing Dance Society and travels regularly to share her knowledge and love of lindy hop and jazz.

The event will take place entirely in one place, at Fynbos Estate. There is a very large farmhouse and multiple cottages for comfortable accommodation, as well as camping. All meals will be provided for the whole weekend, and workshops will take place in two locations on the farm. Parties each night will take place at the gorgeous outdoor Pavillion, and the Pebbleshaker Jazz Band will come out to provide us with live music! There will be two workshop tracks: Beginner-ish (Level 2, which requires completion of all our Level 1 “intro” courses) and Intermediate-ish (Level 3) – please read our level descriptions for more info.

Here’s the provisional schedule – it will be updated with specific workshop themes as and when details are confirmed:

  • Workshops: R900 (about 4 hours per day)
