Swing It Christmas Break


Hey everyone, we’ll be breaking for a short time over Christmas and here are our last class dates and the return dates for 2018… (more…)


Visit us every week at the Belgian Beer Cafe…


Every week we run Swing n Soul, a free Swing dance night at the Belgian Beer Cafe. Come down to watch or join in for a boogie! Check out the details here.


Learn The Stew


It’s time to learn the vintage solo routine, The Stew!
 
The Stew (often called “Mama’s Stew”) is a vintage choreography famously used by Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers to warm up before practicing routines.
 
This routine got its nickname after Louise “Mama Lou” Parks, a former hostess of the Savoy Ballroom in Harlem who helped preserve and teach the dances of the swing era (especially during the revival in the 80’s)
 
The Stew will be taught over two weeks and is open to all levels (no experience necessary). Venture down and dive into the roots of our amazing dance and also learn some new, old-school skills!
 
When: Thursday 26th October and Thursday 2nd November
Where: Subiaco Scout Hall, 399 Rokeby Road Subiaco
Time: 8.30pm
Cost: $15 per class or a star off your star-card

Solo Charleston Series


It’s time to get all 1920s as we kick off a two part Solo Charleston series!

Solo Charlston was all the rage in the 20s and, as you know, Charleston gave birth to Lindy Hop and is still such an influence on the dance. So this is the perfect chance to get into the roots of our amazing dance and also learn some new, old school skills!

This is a two part series and is open to all levels (no experience necessary). Also, we encourage you to do both classes but you don’t need to have done the first if you can only make it to the second.

When: Thursday 28th September and Thursday 5th October
Where: Subiaco Scout Hall, 399 Rokeby Road Subiaco
Time: 8.30
Cost: $15 per class
