Leading Ladies Swing Festival 2020
June 12, 2020 @ 17:00 - June 14, 2020 @ 23:30
The festival welcomes all genders to learn from the Leading Ladies of Swing! Attend as either lead, follow, or switch dancer, and realise your full potential!
We have made sure to hire some of the top women within the swing dance scene to teach, play live music, MC, DJ and everything in between. Classes are not sorted by levels, but by minimum experience, as we believe some skills can be learned regardless of your partner’s skill level (Connection & Musicality), while others require some previous experience and knowledge within the dance (Moves & Variations).
