Summer SwingFest 2018

SUMMERTIME IS SWING OUT TIME!

On 29th Nov – 2nd December 2018 the Summer SwingFest will be kicking off in full force. Four nights of dancing and two days of workshop classes with our international guest teachers. The weather will be glorious and we will be swinging OUT!

WHAT IS SUMMER SWINGFEST?

A weekend of world class instruction  

At its core the Summer SwingFest is about the fantastic workshop classes. Each year I invite international level teachers from around the world to come to Perth and share their knowledge of Lindy Hop. The classes are open level which means anyone that has completed their 5 weeks in Level 1 may attend. It’s a great chance for all levels across all of our locations in our community to come together, work on our dancing and get to know each other!

A social dancing smorgasbord  

Each night of the Summer SwingFest you’ll be able to dance and meet people from around our community and get to dance with our visiting guest teachers. The best part? Because it’s such an action packed weekend it means everyone will be out dancing and having fun. All of us in one room!

A weekend to remember

There’s nothing quite like spending a whole weekend learning and dancing Lindy Hop. Not only does your dancing improve but you get to hang out with all of your Lindy friends and NERD OUT like crazy. All of our levels and locations together for lots of laughs, smiles and new friends.

YOUR TEACHERS…

This year your Summer SwingFest teachers will be Hector & Sonia from Barcelona, Spain!

This will be the first time Hector & Sonia have been to Perth and we’re extremely excited to have them here. Hector & Sonia are wonderful dancers and teachers are are the sweetest people. They’ll be sharing their ideas, new moves and passion for Lindy Hop with all of us.
