The popular SNFCC Social Ballroom series returns, with an evening dedicated to swing music. Vintage charm and unparalleled style take over the Agora, with an open lindy hop class and a dance show by Athens Boogie; the evening will culminate in a raucous dance party with a unique live show by The Speakeasies Swing Band!
Channeling their energy and passion for dancing into a unique, exhilarating experience, the Athens Boogie dance group introduces us to the most popular dancing figures from the Twenties to the Fifties and invites us to experience the swing culture.
The vintage sound of The Speakeasies Swing Band mixes swing, jazz, and blues rhythms. Since 2010, they have been touring in festivals all over Greece and abroad – from Great Britain to Thailand. They have shared the stage with the likes of Parov Stelar and Ray Collins; in 2017, they performed Homesickness Blues show in the Athens & Epidaurus Festival.
