Update May 11, 2022 from BC Swing Camp's website: "We deeply regret that we will be unable to hold Swing Camp 2022 and hope to see you next year. Stay safe."
Swing Camp offers 5 days of music and dance classes, hands-on workshops, concerts, dances, and informal jamming that goes into the wee hours of the morning. People do not come to swing camp to sleep!
Campers learn in a friendly, supportive, non-competitive atmosphere. Seminar Leaders give their time generously to their students, often taking extra time to help them conquer an intricate passage in a song, or arranging a song for a nervous, first-time performer. Friendships are made and solidified through the language of music.
Although the emphasis is on swing music and dance, there are also seminars and workshops dedicated to Brazilian music (boss, samba, choro), more contemporary jazz, blues, percussion, vocal harmony, improv, and many other aspects of jazz.
