Umbria Jazz tour & swing dance lesson

Perugia, Ítalía

Upplifun sem Simone býður upp á

2 klst., Tungumál: enska

Það sem verður gert

We will start the experience with a 45-mins walk in the city center, where I'll show you the best hidden places to enjoy the festival that aren't featured on the official program.
Where do the musicians go jamming after their concerts, and until 7AM?
Where's the best spot to wait for & watch the sunrise with other fellow jazz fans?
Where can you find the best street musicians during the day?

After that, we'll go to the panoramic rooftop of my house where we'll listen to some great jazz vinyls on an original 70s record player.
Here there will be a beginner's lesson of Lindy Hop: even if you have never danced in your life, you can learn the basic step (and a few figures) of the traditional dance of the swing era!
We'll choose together a record from my jazz collection to dance with, and we'll make sure you can show off some cool moves at the concerts you'll attend during your stay.

After such an arduous task, there will be the well deserved aperitif-dinner moment: my jazz vinyls and the stories (with pics and videos) about the most memorable or unexpected episodes happened at the festival since '73 will accompany our aperitif based on the traditional Torta al Testo from Perugia!

Hi! I'm Simone, and I'm a huge fan of jazz music and jazz dancing.
Also, I live in Perugia, the city of Umbria Jazz, one of the most famous jazz festival in the world!
I really love this festival, and when it takes place, I spend all my days dancing under the main stages, and all my nights in the clubs where the musicians go jamming 'till sunrise.

Staðsetning

We'll visit the most important places where the festival takes place, with a particular focus on the "unofficial" ones, where the musicians who play at the main festival go to in the late night.
This experience mainly takes place during Umbria Jazz (July 12nd - 21st). It can be done in other times of the year, but keep in mind that there won't be any jazz music in the locations we'll visit.

This event was amazing, with all the stories we heard, the spots we saw, the dance lesson and the nice food, and the rooftop with terrific view. Simone is super friendly and responsible, very knowledgable about the secret spots of the town, I highly recommend this tour to everyone who wants to go beyond the touristic Perugia.

L’esperienza è state come Simone: autentica, eclettica ed interessante. Abbiamo visitato Perugia con la guida di un fiero Perugino ed abbiamo ricevuto lezioni di Jazz e swing da un vero entusiasta. Simone ha anche la fortuna di possedere una terrazza mozzafiato dove è stato possibile apprendere molto brevemente i fondamentali dello swing. Decisamente la migliore esperienza ad oggi !

Simone ci ha accompagnati attraverso una Perugia a noi inedita, raccondandoci gli aspetti che hanno caratterizzato la storia di Umbria Jazz Festival e che l'hanno resa famosa in tutto il mondo. Il tour alternativo si è concluso sulla terrazza di casa sua, con una divertentissima lezione di base di Boogie Woogie. Vi consigliamo vivamente questa esperienza sia per la competenza che per la gentilezza Simone!

A great tour through some of the most beautiful parts of the city. Simone is very knowledgeable and his passion for the city and culture translates well into the tour. He customized the tour to show us what matched our schedule, and the entire experience felt very casual and relaxed, but incredibly informative! Overall, we had a wonderful time. Simone was a great tour guide and teacher, and we truly felt like we were getting the “insiders” tour.
