Parties?

Lindy hop is all about social dancing. Lindy hoppers all over the world like nothing more than a good party, where they can meet and dance with new friends.

This means parties, social dancing, and live music are a big part of what we do at Swing Dance Sydney. And we take great care to keep our parties fun, the music hot, and the dancing safe.
