Welcome to the 3rd edition of Crazy Blues, a full immersion weekend dedicated to the Blues dance and the Blues music. It is located in the middle of beautiful, charming Tuscany in Italy, and more precisely in Montecatini Terme, a suburb of Pistoia famous for its thermal water and the Liberty style.
Our main purpose is to create a friendly, relaxed, intimate atmosphere, where the dancers will have the chance to get to know each other and hang out together; that's why we love to offer an "All Inclusive" formula: classes + parties & crazy afterparties until late + accommodation & meals.
Registration are now open! Early Bird prices available until 31st October.
Stay tuned to follow all the details about the Festival. For the Facebook event click here.
The Festival is organized by Alice e Lollo, founders of Swing Mood, an association that works in Tuscany (Pistoia, Prato, Florence, Montecatini). They organize weekly classes of Lindy Hop, Solo Jazz, Balboa and Blues; many social dance events with live music and another international festival in the same location of Crazy Blues: Tuscany Balboa Weekend.
You're staying in the Hotel Belvedere. You'll have classes and parties in here. It's 200 meters away from the Funicolare (to reach Montecatini Alto), 500 meters from the city centre, 1 km away from the train station (15 minutes by foot).
