Christmas with TasSwing

16541423-christmas-greeting-card-vintage-design-674We’ve got a couple of Christmas events coming up for you…

Ice-Cream Party!
Once again, TasSwing will be having a Christmas Party to dance out the year, and it will be featuring ICE-CREAM!

Wednesday, December 7 at the Taroona Bowls Club, 6:30-10:30pm, $25

There will be a live band (Nadira and friends), there will be ice cream (prepared by resident chef Barry), there will be fantastic dancing. What’s not to love! Come and join us and bring friends. 6:30-beginner class, 7:30-band start. Only $25 for the night including beginner lesson.

If you’d like to come, and you definitely want ice-cream (and who wouldn’t), then let us know on the Facebook Event page ( by November 28 so we can make sure we have enough food. If you don’t RSVP, you can of course still come, but you might have to share your ice-cream 🙂

End-of-year picnic!
The Christmas party may be the final dancing event of the year, but we also like to finish off the year with a social picnic – so come along to the TasSwing Christmas Picnic!

December 14 from 6:00pm until 9:00pm, at the Battery Point Boat Park.

Here’s the Facebook event:

After that, there’ll be no more classes until February, 2017!

Lindy Chorus Music Video

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…)
