DANCING SWING IN BARCELONA
One of the great things of living in Barcelona is that you can find all kinds of entertainment to suit all kinds of interests and preferences. No matter what kind of music, dancing, singing or art you´re into, there´s bound to be at least one group that meet on a regular basis, allowing you to join in the fun and make some new friends with similar interests. If you haven´t already heard, Swing has come back in a big way and you are likely to see groups of people dancing to Swing all over Barcelona.
If you like Swing or are interested in learning how to dance, there are many people who would be more than happy to show you how it´s done. There are even some classes you can take to learn the basics if you prefer to know at least a little bit what you are doing before attempting to dance with an experienced Swing-dancer:
