swing dance parties


Lindy hop is a street dance, and it's 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.

We teach all our classes with the goal of getting you ready to social dance:

  • Start small with the DJed music between our classes every Wednesday night. This is free, and you can drop in just to social dance.
  • Get bigger with our low-stress DJed Swinging At the PBC parties every 6 weeks (watch out for our occasional live bands!)
  • Get rowdy at Harlem, our regular DJed party.



Social dancing 1st Saturday of each month, with DJs & occasional bands, Ashfield Polish Club, 73 Norton St, Ashfield, $10 for DJs, $30 for bands.

Harlem is a night of dancing and carousing. It showcases authentic music of the jazz and swing eras, played by DJs who know their stuff.

We occasionally host live bands at Harlem, including Andrew Dickeson's Blue Rhythm Band, Adam Hall and the Velvet Playboys (Perth), and George Swellington's Splendid Six.

Tickets available at the door, or online for band nights.

Harlem dates in 2017: 7 Jan, 4 Feb, 11 Feb, 4 Mar, 1 Apr, 6 May, 3 Jun, 1 Jul, 5 Aug, 2 Sep, 7 Oct, 4 Nov, 2 Dec.
