Hey there, I hope everyone has had a nice lockdown! I’ve been enjoying zero exercise and maximum couch. Perhaps not the best choice but there it is! Due to the latest news on Covid restrictions and the potential risk of transmission the final night of Swing It classes have been moved again, this time to July 13th. If restrictions are lifted as suggested we’ll be running the final events as: Last Class night – 13th July Rhythm Lounge – 17th July Stay safe and we hope to see you soon! – Shane & Tara ———- Swing It’s last night is almost here....

Big, big, BIG thank you to all of the wonderful people that donated food and (or) money to our food drive at our recent Rhythm Lounge. Our car was FULL!
There was overwhelming support for the return of our classes on Tuesday night. 87 people in the hall for our Shim Sham class gloriously socially distancing as we danced away our blues. Regular Lindy Hop classes return next Tuesday with Level 2 followed by Level 1 kicking off on June 23rd!
We’re finally here! Classes are returning on June 9th with a Shim Sham class to celebrate. Our Lindy Hop classes will return after that in a roll out of classes over the coming weeks. Check out the class pages for all the info.
Hi Everyone, We are currently going through a period in our society both locally and globally where each and every one of us are being affected by the worldwide spread of Covid 19. Around the globe governments, councils and communities are doing everything they can to respond as best as possible to the pandemic.
20 years ago I walked into my first ever Lindy Hop class and began my Swing journey. It’s a journey that took me from a non dancing country boy to an international Swing Dance teacher that has taught all around the world. The important thing is, of course, that it all started with my first teacher…Roger Schmidlin. Given it’s my 20th year AND Cheryl’s 20th year we thought it would be a wonderful idea to invite Roger to North Perth so he could teach a class for you all. Roger is easily one of the most dynamic and athletic dancers...
The biggest and most wonderful thank you to everyone who took part in the Spring SwingFest! It was an incredible event and I couldn’t be more thrilled with how it went. A big thank you to our visiting teachers Remy and Ramona for bringing so much energy and positivity (shout out to Ramona for constantly being on the dance floor!). Also a big thank you to everyone that helped in set up, pack down and general helping out over the weekend. These weekends would not be possible without you. Looking forward to the next big weekend!
What a great start to our new venue! SO many new Level 1s poured in and then we had a great, old school Level 2. Loved it! A very big thank you to Carly for baking cupcakes for the evening (yum!) and just a big ol’ thank you to all of you that have supported Swing It over the years. 14 years in a month and it all started in this very Vic Park venue. Love it and very happy to be back where it all began.
Fremantle Classes are taking this Wednesday off as the venue works on some floor repairs
Last week was public holiday CRAZY but we’re all back to normal this week. Classes at all locations are at their regular times and locations are all open just like normal. Come on down!
