Announcing a very special SIU workshop weekend on the 29 & 30th of June, with internationally renowned guest teachers Sharon Davis and Juan Villafane!
Registrations are open :
Saturday and Sunday there will be workshops, 3 hours per level. And of course we can’t do without a party, which will take place on Saturday evening, including the amazing Adam Hall & The Velvet Playboys.
– Grasshopper
You are able to hold your bounce and do the basic steps such as pass-by and change places. Furthermore you’re able to do a basic swingout. You have been dancing for at least 6 months. You, young grasshopper, are eager to learn new moves and learn to connect better with your partner.
– Ants in Pants
Swingouts have become a part of your dancing. On the socials you feel relaxed dancing to slow and medium tempo songs. Besides swing-outs you are familiar with many different figures. You have been dancing on a weekly basis for at least 2 years. And now you’re ready to explore musicality and rhythmic variations.
– Daddy Long Legs
Dancing has become a big part of your life and you’ve attended several international workshops. You are in control of the way your body moves and love to improvise. The way you dance has become your own style and this shows on the dance floor as well. You are able to dance on a wide range of tempos.

The room partially contains a wooden dance floor.For the party we have found an amazing band.
Adam Hall and The Velvet Playboys have performed for us before on band nights, and we absolutely loved them. Now they are back to liven up our party once again.
All the way from Perth, Adam Hall, on trumpet and vocals, is joined by Bronton Ainsworth on drums, Kate Pass on the bass, Adrian Galante on Keyboard and Clarinet, Mark Turner on Saxophone and Guitar and Anthony Dodos on Trombone.
They have been playing together since 2005. They combine covers with originals, and refer to their repertoire as being ‘rooted in the Jazz and Rhythm & Blues music of the 40’s and 50’s’.
So get ready for some swinging songs, slick performances, and great dances!
