On June 17th – 18th 2017 the Swing It Winter Workshop returns!

Winter Workshop Teachers…

Who are your teachers this year?  Well I’m very excited to say that Henric & Joanna are back and oh boy are we in for a treat!!

This wonderful couple have been teaching and dancing for years. Both are Boogie Woogie, Swedish Bugg and Lindy Hop Champions (way to be amazing guys!) and have been regular teachers at the Herrang Dance Camp for many years.

Given they’re Swedish it goes without saying that they’re incredibly friendly (they are) but they’re also fantastic teachers; whenever I see them teach I’m always amazed at the creativity of their moves and material. If one thing is certain, it’s that you’ll be coming away from this weekend with a LOT of cool moves.


Amazing Classes…

The best part about these weekends is your access to great classes.  Not only that but eight hours of great classes!  Whoo!

You’ll be getting new material and input from our visiting teachers but also the chance to spend all that time dancing and working on your skills.

Outside of new material, just spending that amount of time dancing and moving will improve your dancing so much.  Also…fun!


Swing And Boogie Woogie…

Given Henric & Joanna are Swing *and* Boogie Woogie world champions I thought it would be fantastic for them to teach a little Boogie Woogie when they’re here.  Boogie Woogie is taught every year at the Herrang Dance Camp and is a European style of Swing dancing.

Boogie Woogie will be taught in the second half of the Saturday workshop classes.

Saturday Night Charity Dance…

This years Winter Workshop Saturday night social is going to be extra special. Our dance will be raising money and awareness for beyondblue – an independent non-profit organisation that promotes good mental health, tackles stigma and discrimination, and provides support and information on anxiety, depression and related mental disorders.

Dancing is such an incredible way to help with mental health and we want to give to an organisation that stands at the forefront of helping those who are suffering. Join us for a fun night of dancing and fundraising!

This will of course also be the perfect opportunity to social dance with our incredible international guests Henric and Joanna Stillman.
