Swing is turning 21 in Australia.
August 2016 is swing / Lindy Hop dancing's 21st birthday in Melbourne.
Adrian Spadaro, from Red Hot Rockers, organised the first swing / lindy hop workshop in Melbourne on 20th Aug 1995 when he put on a workshop with Rob Bloom from Sydney. To celebrate there will be a group performance of the Lindy Chorus on Sat 27th Aug at the Buckley Park Bowls Club, Essendon dance with Honkytonk Rockers.
For those who'd like to join in the performance there will be 2 lindy chorus workshops on Mon 15th and 22nd of Aug at Camberwell Bowls Club, 14 Bowen St Camberwell from 7-10pm for $15 each. This will be an intensive workshop with partners preferred, and is not suitable for inexperienced dancers. Some knowledge of 8 beat moves required. This is a world famous Frankie Manning routine and is danced all over the world.
Here's a youtube clip of the Lindy Chorus being danced at Flipside in May 2014 for the world wide Frankie Manning 100 tribute.
