About Us

We are looking forward to invite you to unique events in the middle of the Tyrolean Alps. As a small community we aim to foster the swing scene with social dances, workshops, international teachers, unique classes and of course – great surroundings.

Our passion for swing dancing and swing music guided us to found the non-profit association “Alpine Jitterbugs Innsbruck”. As Alpine Jitterbugs we organize dance courses, workshops, events and festivals for our local scene and for our international guests who visit us here in Innsbruck. Everything we organize is strictly on a non-profit base.

Our vision is to help shape a long-lasting and open-minded swing scene in Innsbruck, which conveys the passion for swing to the outside world and at the same time welcomes international dancers and musicians with great hospitality.

We want to create places where swing dance culture takes center stage, where people can come together and where exchange between all those involved can be encouraged.

I love swing music. It was the reason I started dancing. When I discovered that swing music came in almost every tempo and style, I wanted to be able to dance to all of those songs. This motivated me to dig into all dances, so that I could always dance the right steps to each song!


I love Swing!
Swing is just so much fun. Whether Lindy Hop, Collegiate Shag or Balboa. It’s the joy, the togetherness, the laughter, the music and just getting involved in all of that what makes me enjoy our community so much.

As an absolute vocation-switcher, I danced my first swingsteps on the social dance floor. Previous years of “ballroom dancing” couldn’t do to me what swing made me feel in a few evenings. It was immediately clear to me: I have to learn this – and really do it! Since then I can no longer imagine my life without swing, workshops and dance trips.
