Inspiration Time
Spotlight on Count Basie

Day & Time: Monday, 19:00 – 20:00

Dates: 29.07.2024 – 29.07.2024

We'll learn about Count Basie's life, and dig into a few of his songs - with a little analysis we'll gain a ton of appreciation, and inspiration for our next dances.

This course is open to all, no matter whether you have tons of experience with swing, or none at all. Come and get inspired!

Inspiration Time is all about the culture of swing music and dance. It's not a dance practice class but a session to watch, listen and learn. You'll watch video clips or listen to music, and your teacher will share with you: culture, stories, inspirations. So, although it's not a dance class, it can have a huge impact on your dancing 😉  You can fully concentrate on what you're seeing and hearing, and get completely new insights and ideas. Plus, Inspiration Time is perfect for hot summer weather! Sit down, relax, maybe eat a little ice cream, and get inspired!

Here’s where Inspiration Time takes place:

SwingStation Kurfürsten-Anlage 58
69115 Heidelberg

The entrance is on the eastern side of the building, reachable from the Kurfürsten-Anlage itself or from the Kirchstraße. Our studio is on the ground floor, at the end of the hall.

Public Transportation: many busses, streetcars, trains; stops “Hauptbahnhof” or “Stadtwerke”.

Parking: please do not park in the yard, the parking spaces don’t belong to us and you might get a ticket. It’s hard to find parking spots in our area, so you should plan in some extra time. You can try to find street parking in the Kirchstraße or Vangerowstraße, or you might need to go to a nearby Parkhaus (e.g. P1 in the Poststraße) and walk from there.
