The purpose of the rules listed below is to ensure that everything goes smoothly and everyone has a good time during Napoca Swing Festival. Please take a few minutes to read them before attending the event.

As a participant of Napoca Swing Festival, you agree to the following rules.

1. General Rules

Registration. This is the first thing to do when attending NSF. In the opening day of the event our staff will welcome you at the registration desk. You will receive useful information, a city map and the event schedule. You will also get a colored sticker, corresponding to the dancing level you checked on the registration form, when you first booked your ticket.

Audition. A quick and easy audition will be held by the teachers after everybody checked in. This is necessary so that every participant will have the chance during the workshops to dance with partners that share similar dancing skills. It is possible that you will keep, advance or lose a level from the one you initially chose during the registration. This way we try to keep an efficient learning curve for everyone attending NSF.

Wristbands. Right after the audition, every participant will receive a colored wristband according to his/her dancing level. Participants may only attend classes matching their level. You must wear your wristband at all times, until the end of the festival. Not having the wristband on, give us the right to restrict your access to the workshops and parties.

Schedule. As a matter of courtesy to our teachers and participants, being on time is a priority for us. If one is late more than 5 minutes after the beginning of the workshops, we might deny his/her access to the class. There also might be situations when slight adjustments of the schedule are necessary for organisational reasons. We reserve the right to change the schedule during the event. If this happens, we will make sure every participant is informed in time through our online and offline communication channels.

Personal belongings. Don’t bring unnecessary luggage to the locations. Also please consider where you deposit your personal belongings. NSF is not responsible for any missing objects during the event.

Dance floor.  Please choose a pair of dancing shoes that you won’t use outside the dancing floor. Additionally, please note that we do not authorize any food, drinks, dance talc or metal heels on the dance floor.

Health and safety. Try to be careful with yourself and others. We do not take responsibility for any physical injuries during the event. Considering that we’ll spend over 3 hours in a salt mine, if you have any medical issues, please check with your doctor if there are any contraindications for you entering the mine. We do not take responsibility for any physical injuries or irresponsible exposure during the event.

Video recording and photography. They are welcomed and uncensored during the parties. Feel free to post this type of content on your own social media, tag yourself, share or comment posts by Napoca Swing Festival throughout the event. On the other hand, video recording and photography during the workshops are forbidden! You can, however, record the summary shown by our instructors at the end of each course. Please keep the records to your private use, as they justify one’s payed ticket to the festival. Take into account that you might be captured by the NSF official photographer during the event. NSF may use this content (photos, videos) for future promotion or artistic purposes. By participating to our event, you agree that official media files are the sole property of NSF.

2. Payments and Discounts

Payment. Once registered, you have to pay within 10 working days. If you are registering as part of a group, or want to pay in cash, please contact us before registering. In the case of groups, the group leader is responsible for paying the full amount for all members of the group, even if someone withdraws from the event.

Discounts. Individual discounts are available for WSDC dancers: Advanced get 50% off of any pass, while All-Stars get a free Dance Pass. For group discounts only workshop pass registrations are considered and there must be at least 5 persons in the group. All members of the group get a 10€ discount. Groups should be resident in the same country. International travelers have 10€ discount. Discounts cannot be combined.

Refunds. For tickets already sold, there are no refunds. If you are unable for any reason to attend the event, you may transfer your registration to another dancer of the same role (leader or follower). The replacing dancer must subscribe to the event, add as comment the person who transferred the pass and pay 10€ to the organizers. Please notify the NSF staff via email, phone or Messenger about the person taking your place.
In case the event gets cancelled we will give refunds or find other solutions that suits all parties.

3. Private Lessons

If the schedule allows, during NSF it will be possible to take private dancing lessons from the guest teachers. This option is available exclusively for NSF participants. Lessons cannot be booked directly from the teachers. For more details or booking privates, contact the organizers.

4. Closure

If, for any reason, we consider one’s presence at the Napoca Swing Festival being offensive or inappropriate for the brand or other participants, we are entitled to withdraw the pass and ask the person to leave the event. No refunds are applied.


Done with regulations. 🙂
