Swing Upon a Time

Salsomaggiore Terme


Hi everyone,
First of all we hope you are all well. Unfortunately, following the further "Urgent measures for the containment and management of the epidemiological emergency from COVID-19", we are forced to cancel the event SWING UPON A TIME.
We are really sorry to have to cancel our festival, we have been working on it for a long time now and it was already sold out several months ago, but health, safety and civic responsibilities towards our community comes first. We also apologize for the inconvenience that our cancellation could cause.
We will shortly send an email to all participants regarding our refund policy, if you don't see it in your main folder, please check also the spam folder.
We are already working to make the 2021 edition memorable. 
We thank you in advance for the understanding and support that we all need in this moment.
Everyone stay safe and see you soon on the dance floor.



Once upon a time, there was a magical place, where those who loved music could meet with those who loved to dance, to live together unforgettable days, with gala parties in evening dress, exciting courses, brass instruments, pianos, and walks under the leafy branches of spring, wearing the best shoes to dance without thoughts.

What is the happy ending? It is that all this is actually reality, and it is called SWING UPON A TIME!

Now in its fifth edition, here it comes again the international festival signed Parma Lindy Hoppers, in the incomparable twentieth-century setting of Salsomaggiore Terme: a real blast from the past where every enthusiast and nostalgic for Swing Era will feel like in a fairytale with a retro taste, spending a weekend among friends, exciting classes, performances and parties in stunning locations. Also, forget about using a car…. everything is reachable just strolling down the tree-lined streets of the town.


The magical formula of SWING UPON A TIME:

  • Three days of workshops with international teachers, among the most acclaimed of the scene, who will come back again!
  • Two unmissable evening parties with a lot of dancing, performances and live music with NPBB and Hot Gravel Eskimos!!! 
  • Sunday Music Appetizer
  • A full weekend for swing and relax, to meet again friends and get to know new dancers from all over Italy and beyond
  • History Talk
  • Market and vintage corner for your shopping with a swing twist

At SWING UPON A TIME there are always many surprises… so stay tuned, we will be revealing soon many useful information and how to participate in this event to which you are all invited!
