DUTCH SWING FESTIVAL HAS BEEN POSTPONED
We are sad to inform that DSF 2020 has been moved to 2021.
We didn't receive the required registrations, meaning we can't ensure the quality and experience of the event. We will go back to the drawing board, re-evaluate and come back with a greater concept that gives you the best dancing and quality workshops Amsterdam has to offer..!!

--- FUN JACK & JILL COMPETITION ---
A Jack & Jill (J&J) is the most common type of competition in West Coast Swing, and was designed to simulate a social dance where the dancers may not necessarily know each other or the song.
At WCS Day, there will be a friendly “high-low” J&J, which is a J&J where a lower and higher level dancer are paired together so each randomly matched pair has a more equal chance of winning some of the awesome prizes! This is a fun J&J, which means no WSDC points are awarded. All levels welcome, including newcomers—this kind of competition is the best for your first competition!
There is no competition fee to join this fun J&J. To join, simply go to the Registration Desk to pick up a bib number. Make sure you’re back in the venue ready to dance by 20:30!
