The official hosted experience ends 10.30 pm but you can party on 'til late. Cut a rug, why don't you! "I never taught people where to step on '2', because when I learned how to dance there was no '2'. We just danced to the music." Frankie Manning (Father of Swing)
It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing! A local swing dancer and dance enthusiast, I'm delighted to introduce you to Lindy Hop, Toronto style. The jazz music of the big-band era and beyond is superb and it's wonderful to dance to. I'm part of an all-Canadian dance troupe. I dance a variety of dance styles, including Lindy Hop, Charleston, Balboa, Solo Jazz, Collegiate Shag, Blues, Jive and Boogie Woogie. Swept up in the swing dance revival of the 1980s and I've learned to dance in Melbourne, Montreal, London, Athens, San Francisco and Toronto. If these dates don't suit, message me.
