Munich, Germany’s “Rock That Swing Festival” brings worldwide talent for a five-day event
Munich’s “Rock that Swing Festival” is an annual celebration of Swing music and dance that’s been around for over a dozen years. Performers come from far and wide to participate in dance nights, competitions, live shows, and workshops headed up by dance masters for an unforgettable atmosphere.
You don’t have to miss out…
If you’ve never been to the “Rock That Swing Festival” then you would have missed out on some incredible entertainment. But thanks to YouTube videos, you can catch showstoppers like this 2017 performance.
Two dancers on stage capture audience’s attention even before the first move
As the title card runs, you can hear the event announcer welcoming our performers to the stage. We then see a man and a woman, standing in fancy costumes that could have come straight off the cover of a Swing Era catalog. Performer Nils (Right) signals for the music to begin as he and Bianca (Left) stand ready to captivate their audience.
You don’t have to be a scientist to understand this chemistry
The music picks up fast as we see this couple move to the music in a way that you might not expect outside of a softshoe tap routine. Bianca and Nils take the stage by storm as they perform high-energy steps and bits that are designed to enchant and amaze. Besides the energy on display, audiences and viewers will notice the incredible chemistry between these two performers.
Both performers bring something unique to the performance that combines into an amazing whole
The sense of wonder and fun is on full display. When Nils leads, his big suit and heavy stance gives the show power and weight. When Bianca takes the lead, things smooth out with a focus on grace that grabs your attention and keeps it.
But Bianca and Nils create just as much magic when they dance together. You’ll notice how they move together, guiding each other through the challenging high energy routine. It tells a story that would fit in perfectly well in a Swing era film.
It’s not just the performers that add fun to the show…
Don’t forget to check out their expressions. Even during some of the most high-energy steps of this routine, there’s still a lot of fun and humor to be seen. You can almost see their smiles as Bianca’s dress flips around while Nils tie flops to and fro. The costumes become just as much a part of the show as the dancers themselves.
One surprising maneuver makes the audience go crazy!
But then you see this part of the show. Bianca slides to one side then performs an incredible backwards bend. Nils comes running and slides over his dancer partner.
Nils then turns around and offers his hand to help Bianca back to her feet. The crowd goes wild during this unexpected and very cool bit.
It isn’t over until it’s over, but audiences wish it would never end
The last parts of the routine are the most incredible yet. These dancers step, hop, and swing with a laser focus that’s determined to bring it home. Every step is just one part of a beautiful chorus of fancy footwork.
Then, the lights dim as the song comes to a close. Nils and Bianca bow as the crowd goes wild. The lights dim just as these incredible performers bask in the adulation you can only receive by performing for one of the best audiences in Europe.
