Saturday 10 June
Melbourne Town Hall
Promising to be one of the most heart-thumping and adrenaline-pumping events at this year’s Festival is Swing City, following in the furious dance-steps of 2013’s Roaring Swing and 2014’s Swing Noir.
In an all-in night of music and dancing that would make Count Basie and Duke Ellington proud, Australia’s hot musical export, multi-instrumentalist Adrian Cunningham, flies in from the birthplace of swing, New York City, to front flaming big band Professor Cunningham and His Old School for this one-night-only show.
Melbourne’s internationally renowned swing dancing community are polishing up their dance shoes for the night and Swing Patrol will teach a fun lesson to get you dancing all night long. So if you’ve never ‘Tuck-Turned’ or ‘Texas-Tommied’ before, you’ll have the basics down pat to carve up the floor.
Swing out like there’s no tomorrow.
Dance class from 6:30pm
Dance from 7:30pm
