What makes NSF an amazing experience

It all started as a simple dance festival, small and social, made with and for friends. Now Napoca Swing Festival is at its 6th edition this year with even more surprises than before. With hard work and a lot of stubbornness, we aspire to offer you an amazing experience where you will get to share your love for West Coast Swing, connect with other dancers – be they teachers or beginners – and discover the city.

The Dancing Experience

As every edition, you will get to meet great teachers this year as well: Olivier and Virginie Massart from France and Paul Warden and Coleen Man from UK. Both couples have unique dance styles and teaching techniques.

Every participant will have 8 hours of workshops split into three days. As the festival is smaller in size, the groups will be more compact and the workshop experience more focused on the individual, with the possibility to directly interact with the teachers and to get immediate feedback as during a private lesson.

There will be four parties, where you can unwind after the intense learning during the day, dance your heart out, connect with all westies from beginner to advanced and of course your teachers! Saturday night is a 20’s themed party, with a fun competition and teacher presentations.

There might be some surprises during the parties, but for that you’ll have to come and see for yourselves. 😉

The City Break Experience

A tradition we have is holding the last day’s classes at Salina Turda an iconic salt mine near the city. We will have 2 hours of workshops in the salt mine, followed by a garden party at Lavandierii – Suatu.

Sunday evening we invite you to join us for a cozy dinner, camp fire and indulge yourself in local cuisine and friendly discussions.

The Whole Experience

The main reason we call NSF an experience and not just your regular dance festival is the level of attention to detail, the cozy and friendly atmosphere. 

Organizing this festival we strive to achieve the perfect balance between learning, relaxing and having fun. We believe it is very important for you to get proper meals and proper sleep, so that you can truly pay attention during workshops and still have energy at the parties.

Given the size of the festival, you will get the chance to interact with all the festival participants during and outside of classes. Because of it’s the location, you will have the chance to explore the city whenever you have a break.

We are eager to see you on the 15th of June!
