Zdenek Pilecky vom Zig-Zag Tanz Studio in Prag veranstaltet einen Swingworkshop mit Joseph & Trisha. Parties wird´s auch geben, vielleicht sogar mit Ondrej Havelka & his Melody Makers, leider bin ich des Tschechischen nicht mächtig. Muttersprachler, bitte übersetzen (die meisten Akzente musste ich wegen Darstellbarkeit weglassen, hoffentlich ist der Text jetzt nicht völlig sinnentstellt) 🙂 :
