Dancing like in the old days

Swing & Snow Dance Workshops

Dancing like it used to be at the Tanzcafé Arlberg for some years now. But since last year, not only the numerous live concerts of the Vintage Music Festival, but also the "Swing & Snow Workshops" have been invited to dance.

5th - 7th April 2019

Dance Workshops at the Tanzcafé Arlberg

Lindy-Hop classes are offered for different levels. New this year are the Lindy Hop classes for complete beginners. All courses will again be led by the German trainer couple Bärbl Kaufer and Marcus Koch. The multiple national and international Boogie Woogie and Swing Champions are known around the globe for their outstanding knowledge, their energetic courses and their fun in dancing.

Swing dancing, live bands in a unique mountain scenery, festival feeling and sun skiing – the perfect combination for everyone who wants to live out their passion for dance in the special ambience of the Tanzcafé Arlberg.

The Swing & Snow dance courses, which take place during the Tanzcafé Arlberg from 05 to 07 April in Lech Zürs am Arlberg, can be booked from 01 November. Our recommendation: Secure one of the coveted places right away.

For every Skill Level


You have already become a little familiar with the swing rhythm and your I’ve already tried my first Lindy Hop dance steps. You know one of the Basic steps in 6 count and 8 count and you already have at least one change of place and one turn at slow and medium speed.

You can continue right after the beginner course.


You have been dancing for at least 1 year and are regularly in classes and Socials to find. Leading/Following at slow to medium tempo I don’t want you to have any big problems. Stretch/Compression/Release are well known Leadership concepts that you can apply in linear and rotary movements. At best you have already tried one or the other Solo Move (e.g. Shim Sham).


Tanzcafé Arlberg - Festival im Frühjahr


You’ve danced Lindy Hop for at least a year and a half and you know the basic vocabulary. Regular social dancing is a matter of course for you.  Terms like Frame, Connection, Stretch or Body-Leading are more and more an integral part of your dancing. For you it’s not only new moves that count, you also would also like to refine your improvisation repertoire and the quality of your movement, your styling, your technique and your musicality.
