March 29
to April 2



The Anchor Festival 2018 offers fantastic workshops, competitions and parties. When, where and with whom—our schedule will tell you. You can also save the PDF or print it out.



During the Anchor Festival workshops are divided into four levels. Choose your appropriate level with the help of the following descriptions and make sure you specify it upon registration. Of course the levels are only a recommendation.

Level 1

The basics (6-count patterns plus whip) are no problem, you’re a regular guest at West Coast Swing parties.

Level 2

You’re used to variations, stylings and advanced patterns. You’re visiting events and workshops.

Level 3

Now we’re talking. This level is only accessible if you are dancing in the WSDC divisions Novice, Intermediate or above.

Level 4

Level 4 is only for hard-hitting Advanced / All-Star dancers—in comparison, keel-hauling is pure pleasure …

Bameo Intensive

In their 8 hour Intensive (4 hours on Thursday and Friday each), BAMEO will fire you up. Don’t miss it!


Located in the heart of the city, the historic “Mozartsäle” (Mozart-halls) and their atmospheric ambiance are a rather hidden piece of hanseatic freemasonry art. In order for you to find your way around Hamburg, we put together some information.

Address of our venue:
Moorweidenstrasse 36
20146 Hamburg

It’s way easier to get around Hamburg by bus and metro than by car.

From the Airport: S1 (Only one train available) to the central station (Haubtbahnhof). Change on the same platform to S21 (direction Elbgaustraße) and go to Dammtor (one station). From there it’s just a 5 minute walk.
