The Swing Dance Association of Victoria is happy to announce the first open practice space. We have listened to all the requests we have received to start an open practice space in Victoria. This space can be used for solo or partner dance, or practicing those moves you learned in the latest Lindylocal workshop; in fact, it can be used for just about anything you want that is related to dance.
Victoria’s swing dancing DJ will square off to see who gets the honours of representing Victoria in Lindy Bout VII’s Battle of the Western DJs. Lindy Bout will be the weekend of April 4-6, 2014.
Want to join in on the fun? The preferred method is to send an email to email@example.com so we give on an step by step instructions
to electronically submit 10 songs.
Still hanging onto those old school ways? Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will coordinate a time with you for Matt Bartlett to come pick it up. The ten songs submission must contain songs that you would consider playing at a Victoria swing event. They’ll be vetted by experts. Up to four people will be selected to compete in the prelims at Rhythm Room (March 19th). Two people will compete in the finals (March 29th). Please don’t put your name on the CDs. MP3 format please.
