Who are behind this project?

Hi everyone! We are Silvia and Juanjo, owners of Blanco y Negro Studio dance school in Madrid.

All this started in 1999, more than a decade ago, with the magazine “Música y Bailes de Salón” (Music and ballroom dance) and its later online version “Música y Bailes.com” (Music and Dances.com). This was all linked to our passion for North American rhythms: Charleston, Balboa, Shag, Lindy Hop, Swing, Rock & Roll.

Six years ago, thanks to the support of many of you, it was possible to organise our first Swing Festival in Madrid. One step at a time, with a lot of work and effort, we find ourselves preparing the 6th edition, the VI SWING MADRID FESTIVAL, and we hope that with your enthusiasm and willingness it’ll be another success. It will also be the sixth festival fully organised by Blanco y Negro Studio, which means a great professional challenge for us. We do hope to do our best, so that you like it as much as the previous edition and enjoy this great project as much as we do.

So…WELCOME everyone!

Silvia & Juanjo.
