Spring SwingFest 2019

LET’S SWING THIS SPRING!

On 11th – 13th October 2019 the Spring SwingFest will be kicking off. Wait…Spring?! That’s right, the Summer SwingFest is being brought forward this year to Spring! Why? So we can be treated to the INCREDIBLE teachers we have planned for you this year!

Three nights of dancing and two days of workshop classes with our international guest teachers. You will LOVE IT!

WHAT IS THE SPRING SWINGFEST?

A weekend of world class instruction  

At its core the Spring 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 Spring 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 Spring SwingFest teachers will be Remy & Ramona!

Remy Kouakou Kouame (France) is, quite frankly, probably the most high profile and sought after Lead teacher in the world right now. His dancing is transformative and his passion for the dance mixed with his personal charm is nothing short of unbeatable. Ramona Staffeld (USA) has been a prominent feature of the world Lindy Hop scene for many years. Ramona’s passion and heartfelt love for the dance is unmatched and her ability to make you fall in love with Lindy Hop is what has made her stand out from the crowd since day one.

We’re honestly SO lucky to have them here in Perth!
