Introducing Shob and Andy

Shob and Andy – Swing Patrol, Melbourne

Shob and Andy’s lindy hop journey together started 8 years ago and has brought them more joy than they could have ever dreamed. They have numerous Australian titles under their belts and are honoured to be part of Melbourne’s performance troupe “Echoes of Harlem”.

But their first love is the joy and creativity of the social dance floor where they are known for their connection and originality.

They have danced and taught all over Australia and currently run one of Melbourne’s largest weekly dance venues.

Shob and Andy classes emphasize connected body movement and finding your own unique way to express music. Their warm and approachable personalities has made them one of Melbourne’s most popular teaching couples.

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…)
