Swingin' In the New Year!

A big thank you to everyone that danced the night away and helped make the New Year’s Stomp such a great success! The atmosphere and energy was at a high all night and, from all reports, everyone had a fantastic time.

A huge congratulations goes out to our Jack & Jill winners!

1st place: Hock Jin Goh & Crystle Challenger
2nd place: Jarrod Marshall & Annie Ryan
3rd place: Peter Mizza & Su-Lyn Chong

The competition level was high and all the judges agreed that it was a tough pick in all the heats. Without a doubt this was one of the best Jack & Jills I’ve seen (regardless of how terrible my maths were). Thank you to my judges; Cheryl, Ruth, Trevor and Wesley. A VERY big thank you to the sponsors for donating the prizes for the Jack & Jill: Thank you to the Melbourne Jazz Dance Association for donating the MLX passes for 1st prize. The MJDA do an outstanding job each year with the Melbourne Lindy Exchange and it’s certainly an event not to be missed. Also a very big thank you to the Perth Swing Dance Society and the Hullabaloo Committee for donating the Hullabaloo Social passes for 2nd prize. Hullabaloo is one of the biggest camps in Australia and is coming up soon!

Also, once again, I’d like to thank Anthony, Nadia, Melanie, Michelle, Sharon and Trevor for all their help in the planning of the event and setting up (and taking down) on the night! I couldn’t have done it without you guys, thank you so much! A big thank you to Anthony, Melanie, Michelle and Trevor for their fantastic DJing and yet another thank you to everyone that stayed back on the night to help clean and tidy!!

We all had such a great time and I can proudly announce that the New Year’s Stomp will now be an annual event! Get ready for more Swingin’ fun in another year!!
