Upcoming Highlights

This year we are celebrating 20 years of the Lindy Hop revival in Australia and New Zealand and now's your chance to celebrate Perth style with the Perth Swing Dance Society and ALL the Perth swing dance community.

The night will feature:

  • Perth's very own Oz Big Band live
  • Swing DJ during the breaks
  • Spacious dance floor at the North Perth Town
  • Your chance to win a Social Pass to Hullabaloo 2016
  • A splash of swing history and
  • A chance to share all your swing memories with past and present swing dancers (and why not have some cake to make it a real celebration).

The aim is to celebrate our community with everyone involved, Schools, Bands, Organisations and of course the Dancers. We encourage you to invite people from the present and also from the past.

Tickets will be available online shortly and will also be available at the door (cash only at the door, credit/debit payments available via the online ticketing system).

Lindy Hop arrived first in Australia in 1937 when Frankie Manning toured Australia's East Coast and NZ with the Big Apple Dancers.

The Revival officially began on 13 Aug 1995 in Sydney with a workshop organized by Rob Bloom & Nicky Haslam. That is when regular classes started and the first school was founded to spread the love of Lindy Hop in Australia. Be part of this event! If you have any suggestions, ideas or want to offer some services please email More info here.

Cost: $25 for members, $35 for non members
