Latest news May 17th 2016

Happy May everybody! We have got a huge couple of months coming up, with 6 week beginner courses, a new one-day workshop, and the inaugural Graduation Dance this Thursday night. We’ve also welcomed Katey and Vedrana to the teaching team and they will be teaching together once we are on leave and ready to welcome a little lindy hopper into our family. You’ll see them around in classes lending a hand and generally being awesome.
You’ll probably also see lots of new faces around, as we have had an incredible influx of new dancers, which is wonderful! So don’t forget to introduce yourself and have a dance. It’s excellent to see so many new people with so much enthusiasm for swing!
Happy dancing,
Luna and Jarryd
