The next edition of the European Swing Dance Championships will be held in 2018. Full dates and details will be announced on this website. Swing dancers from all nations of the world are invited to attend and compete in the swing dance contests, enjoy social dancing with live jazz music and international DJs, and take part in workshops taught by top international instructors. As always, there will be big cash prizes and our EuroStar Award program!
The European Swing Dance Championships was created to support the development of European Lindy Hop, Charleston, Balboa and other swing dances, through competitive dancing and showcase. ESDC aims to be a world-class, international event, celebrating and promoting jazz-age dances, their music and culture. ESDC hopes to highlight the European presence in the international swing dancing community, whilst also honouring the rich history of Lindy Hop and other jazz dances, and preserving their true spirit.
