Welcome to the BB-DanceCamp
Welcome to BB-DanceCamp, one of the oldest boogie woogie and swing camps in Europe. It exists since more than 30 years and traditionally takes place at Whitsun in Landsberg am Lech, Germany.
BB-DanceCamp 2022 - UPDATE
We are very happy we will be able to have our BBDC anniversary camp – 35 years – on 4-6 June 2022. You find more information about the format and regulations below.

The Boogie-Bären and the organising team of the BBDC take a stand
On 24 February 2022 the Russian army started an incomprehensible attack on the sovereign state of Ukraine, which we strongly condemn. Aside from the great suffering caused by this war, we are also faced with the question of how to deal with our Russian teacher couple Svetlana and Alexei Gavrilov. For on the one hand, we firmly believe in the unifying power of dance and the BBDC is and remains for us a place of encounter for all people, regardless of their origin and nationality. On the other hand, we also want to show our solidarity with Ukraine. For this reason, we have decided to join the economic sanctions against Russia. This means that we will not be able to engage Svetlana and Alexei Gavrilov at BBDC 2022.
This decision is very difficult for us as we have taken these two dancers deeply into our hearts and have come to love them a lot. They are excellent teachers, great people and friends and our decision has nothing to do with them as a person. We will miss them very much at our camp and hope to see them again for BBDC 2023 in a world that has become peaceful again.
...and we hope that this terrible war will be over soon!
