Swing Courses – Season 2023-2024

This year all of our classes will be held at the new Cave Freaks location at 1 Via alle Cave (Trieste). The location is just a stone’s throw from the pool in San Giovanni.

Classes will be in English and taught by teachers:

The calendar includes classes, divided into several levels:

  • Lindy Hop
  • Balboa
  • Jazz Only

Together with our teachers, we try to form classes that are as homogeneous and balanced (but above all, potentially fruitful) as possible, which will allow them to carry out the projects they have in mind for all of us.


  • 6:30-7:30 p.m. Lindy Hop Roseland
  • 7:30-8:30 p.m. Lindy Hop Abs beginners
  • 8:30-9:30 p.m. Lindy Hop Invitational

We Love Blues!

Hey boys and girls – whatever your age!
After unofficial communications, funny developments of events and mysterious coincidences, we are finally ready to show you our personal idea of Blues dance:
a 3 dates combo, with workshops and social dance evenings!
…And we will include some good live music as well!

Teachers will be the marvellous Kristina Berčič and Miha Žabkar, all the way from Ljubljana.
In addition, on Dec 2nd evening, our dances will be emotionally conducted by the great Samuel Blues and his well-known guitar!

Three dates:
Sat November 25th 2023
Sat December 2nd 2023
Sat December 16th 2023
Every day will have the following schedule:
15:00 – 16:30 basic level
16:45 – 18:15 intermediate level
21:00 – Social dance

Nov 25th
@ Cave Freaks (FreaksCave), Via alle Cave, 1
classes and evening dances with guests to be announced

Dec 2nd
@ Cave Freaks (FreaksCave), Via alle Cave, 1
classes and evening dances with Samuel Blues

Dec 16th
@ Piccola Fenice, via San Francesco, 5 classes and Christmas Party at evening

Basic level
The Basic classes will be aimed at those who have no experience of blues dances or just the very basic knowledge of it. We will be focusing on the fundamentals of posture, pulse, rhythm and connection. Our goal is to give you the skill to be able to dance to a variety of blues tempos with confidence, to react to the music and to create a relaxed, intimate and pleasant dance with you and your dance partner. We recommend this level also for those who would like to visit the intermediate class and already know a bit about blues dancing. 

Intermediate level
Intermediate classes will focus on the more advanced and difficult part of connection, rhythm manipulation and musicality. We will focus on the frame, fluidity, action and reaction in connection and variety. By the end of the class you will have new techniques, skills, moves and general knowledge that will take your dance to a new level. The intermediate class is intended for those that have a general grasp of blues fundamentals and have no problem with dancing to a blues song already and those who finished the basic course of the day.

The three days package (3 x 1,5h) costs 50€
Single class cost is 20€

In order to access to classes and dance evenings at Cave Freaks, you need to have AICS + Swing Freaks cards.
If you do not have them, just write us in advance so we will send you instructions.

Stay Freak at Home…again!

Tuesdays (30/03, 06/04, 13/04, 20/04):

  • Balboa classes: We will continue with learning new moves and work on good body movement, creativity within known steps, working on basic technique and add some stylish spices.
  • Lindy Hop: In this round we will focus more on a social aspect of the dance. What makes a good and pleasant follower or leader? How to connect with music a bit more? How to find space for both dancers to express themselves and still respect each other?
  • Solo Jazz: Within these 4 classes our body will become a musical instrument. We will play with basic solo jazz steps and add different sounds by clapping, snapping and slapping. We will spice up things by adding some tap steps and sounds with our feet.
