We have so many students asking what is the difference between Swing/Lindy Hop and RocknRoll/Rockabilly dance styles.  It all comes down to the music and the steps and also geographically where you are in the world.  Jive, Jitterbug, East Coast Swing, Boogie
Woogie are all form of RocknRoll. Each have their own style.  Lindy Hop is the grandfather of them all. So don’t be afraid of the label of the dance style ….just dance to the music.
There is a lengthy article on NSW RocknRoll Association page if you wish to read more on this topic.

Christmas in July Coast Shelter Appeal
We are collecting donations for Coast Shelter Appeal and gifts for our Raffle. If you are able to help please let me know at class or email me.

It doesn’t matter whether you Swing or RocknRoll.  So many students missed out on our Swing Ball because they told me they don’t Swing Dance.  RocknRoll is East Coast Swing.  Its grandfather dance is Lindy Hop.  You are already swing dancing.

Swing Ball Review
Our first Swing Ball was such a success with the most positive feedback .  It was a great
relaxed intimate affair with an awesome band in The Aston Martinis and great venue.  It’s a rarity when a club asks you back.  So keep you eyes peeled for another intimate social coming in September.
