It's a big week this week

There's the Tap Shim Sham (yay!), Solo Jazz, Blues, and a social.

Hop to it!

Last week the Swingtopia Crew danced at the Fourth of July Celebrations for the US Consul General.  They did an amazing job!  The Consul General, Rachel, was so great she even got up and danced with us!  Well done to the team - Lisa, Evelyn, the two Matts, and Paul.  And thank you to Keith and Sam for the photos.

Three weeks ago Ellen and Michael helped me out teaching a very enthusiastic bunch of people how to Charleston.  The event was a charity ball to help end slavery throughout the world.  If you'd like to donate you can go to  Thanks to Dance For Justice for organising it all.

Swing on!
