GBG Tap Weekend started in 2017 (then by the name N#1 Tap Weekend) and is the tap dance festival of West Coast Jitterbugs. It’s a non profit event run by a bunch of Gothenburg swing dancers who after a few years of lindy hopping became addicted to tap dance.
Since it’s organised by swing dancers it’s focused on rhythm tap and swing jazz music, which is an essential part of the history of tap dance. At GBG Tap Weekend you can take tap classes and jam. In the evenings we jam and Saturday night we turn the venue into a jazz club. We want to create a space where dancers and musicians can jam, dance and play together.
