• New Online Course: “The Rhythm Section”

Dear community, dear students,

With heavy hearts we have to announce that we’re closing SwingStep Berlin.

It’s been a great pleasure to work in this community for the past nearly 10 years. As SwingStep, we offered our first classes back in September 2013. It’s been an incredible journey filled with dance, music, laughter, and friendships. 

Just like many cultural activities, the Covid pandemic really hit us hard. Despite support from the government and the community, we haven’t managed to grow back with enough participants to keep our doors open. For reference: at the beginning of 2020 we had over 300 active students, and at the beginning of this year we have fewer than 90. We’ve been trying different strategies to make it work with the comeback after Covid, but unfortunately we no longer have enough financial buffer left to explore more options.

How do things continue? 
The show will go on every Monday with a few courses (including That’s My Jam) and parties, starting May 8th.

We want to express our sincere gratitude to all of our dancers, supporters, and partners for their support and encouragement throughout the years. We’ll keep all the great experiences we shared in our memories, and we hope to see you all on the dance floor as often as possible!

Best wishes, 
Your SwingStep team
