Ghastas Pista Swing Project

Ghastas Pista swing project is a Swing dance project led by dancer Constance Hurlé, seeking for a constant dialogue between music and dance.

The project consists of a Jazz band, Ghastas Pista swing band, whose concerts are preceded by a lindy hop class which is open to all. While the band performs, the teachers dance for the audience.

Inherent to Ghastas Pista are the values of equal opportunities between men and women, and the questioning of traditional gender roles, in music as well as in dance. Thus, the band’s rhythm section consists of two women. The two dancers are both women, questioning the traditional male-leader, female-follower that usually prevails in social and ballroom dancing.
