What we believe in and why. They help us keep our hearts in the right place and remind us what is truly important. Have a look at them!
Quality & Innovation
Can be applied to any single area, and Swing & Jazz are no exception. Through The World Jam, we want to provide a different focus and support the stakeholders by pushing the limits of traditional swing events, though the education around this American heritage.
While the event has a clear competitive edge, through multiple battles of the bands and dance competitions, we believe that competition can and must be collaborative, fair and respectful.
Opportunity & Challenge
Musicians and dancers should have equal opportunities to share and develop their talents as key contributions to the swing movement. While consolidated artists are in our hearts, we believe in creating a space for talent discovery. We call these folks “The Challengers”.
Joy & Inspiration
Our goal is to create moments of inspiration and happiness through the universal language of music. A climate of union and collaboration that is needed today more than ever. A truly magical experience.
