Come and dance at the Taste of Tasmania

270547_home_heroTasSwing has been asked to demonstrate swing dancing at the Taste of Tasmania, on January 3rd, between 5:30pm and 6:00pm (we’ll be followed by Rockabilly and Tango)!!!

Lindy Mob will be in attendance and will perform some choreographed numbers, but we’d also like YOU to come along and social dance so that we can show everyone what swing dancing is. The format will be:

Lindy Mob performance – 5 minutes
Social dancing by all dancers – 20 minutes
Lindy Mob performance – 5 minutes

The dance area will be outdoors on the Castray Esplanade side of the Princes Wharf building. There will be a dance floor laid down on the concrete surface for us to dance on.

Hopefully we will see you there!

Ever wonder what would happen if members of TasSwing, Lindy Mob and the Moonlight Aviators ever got together? Well, check out these videos below to see a great performance of the Lindy Chorus for Frankie 100! (note the videos are the same, one of them is just in sepia, if you prefer that old time look…)
