MADRID, OPEN TO THE SWING CITY
From May 23rd to 26th, swing takes to the streets, making the Madrid Lindy Exchange an event open to everyone. The swing will be the lead and will mark the rhythm of the city during a long weekend in which hoppers from all places, schools and musicians will share experience with amateurs and will awaken the curiosity of many.
In our proposal we couldn’t miss the street dancing in the open and free spaces, which are already part of the identity of MAD for Swing. The open program invites curious and amateurs to join our party by sharing the rhythms of swing in two fundamental scenarios for the leisure life of our vibrant city: the Templo de Debod and Centro Conde Duque.
On THURSDAY 23, between 22:00 and 23.45, the Welcome party in the South Patio of Conde Duque. Lively social dance with live music by the Spirits Jazz Band.
