Who are we?

 

Trieste Swing cultural association was born in 2017 to be the common home of all lovers of swing music and dance in Trieste, a reference point, even from the institutional point of view, which was missing in the city to promote swing culture, dance and music in Trieste and in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region through dedicated events and social dance nights.

Our dance evenings are called SWING Night by which we have brought the energy and enthusiasm of our dances wherever we have been guests.

Trieste Swing organizes a great festival every year called Swing Harbour hosting the best teachers of the international swing scene.
