The Big Spiel!
*instructions on how to sign up are at the bottom of this page

This July, we’re excited to bring you a veritable feast of social dancing and swing workshops! Shan and Dave of TasSwing, Tasmania are our esteemed instructors this year, and they’ve put something really special together for us. You could almost say they're putting the Tas in Swingtastic (sorry). Moving on, our focus this year is blues, lindy hop and the incomparable joy of social dancing.

Now for a sneak peek at what we have planned!

Wednesday 5th July: Our whirlwind of social dancing starts on Wednesday night at the Darwin Railway Club, with the hardest working big band in Darwin, the Hot and Cold Big Band!
$5 for members, $10 for non-members, free entry for Swingtastic attendees

Thursday 6th July: It's Chorus Line time again, ladies of Swing! Some of you may remember how much fun we had learning and performing our last routine, so we're doing it all again! This time, we're going to learn a chorus girl routine condensed into a single 3-hour workshop. This is open to dancers of all levels; there will be a bit of fancy footwork, but nothing too difficult.
Free entry for Swingtastic attendees, $10 for a single night pass

Friday 7th July: Our series of workshops starts on the Friday evening, with an intimate evening of blues with Shan and Dave, with Blues Workshops 1 & 2 followed by social dancing til late.
Free entry for Swingtastic attendees, $20 for a single night pass (combine with Swingtastic Saturday night and pay $30 for both)

Saturday Day 8th July: Saturday morning will start with a scant hour of solo jazz to get you bright eyed and bushy-tailed. We’ll follow this with Lindy Hop workshops 1 and 2, with Shan and Dave.

Saturday Night 8th July: Following on the heels of the sweet slowdown of our blues night, we're going to get hectic! Lined up for you, we have Darwin's premier gypsy jazz ensemble - France is Burning! Some of you may have caught them most recently at the Seabreeze Festival after party, so you'll already have an idea of their crazy skills and sharp style - if you haven't, you're in for a treat! We'll be at the Darwin Masonic Hall, a licensed venue, so please come prepared to purchase alcohol (no BYO). We'll also provide a bit of a supper later in the night.
Free entry for Swingtastic attendees, $20 for single night pass

Sunday 9th July: This is for sure our most packed day of sweet swing madness! We’ll once again kick off with some energetic solo jazz to get you in the dancing mood. We’ll follow this with Lindy Hop Workshops 3 & 4.

Sunday Afternoon 9th July: It’s our Jetty as you’ve never seen it! We’re putting down a smooth dance floor, and hooking up the soft lighting, so that after the sun drops below the horizon, you’ll be able to keep dancing. Wind up your Swingtastic 2017 in true Territory style.

Levels: This year, we’re trying something different with our levels. We’ll just have one, open level – this means that everyone will have the option to come to every class. There are a few reasons why we’ve done this: First and foremost, we want this to be an event that really illustrates the magic of social dancing. Splitting people into groups – especially when it’s a small number of people – can interfere with this aspect. Also, people just learn better when there are different skill levels all working together.

We’ll have 60 full passes to sell this year. In a perfect world, we’d have 30 leads and 30 follows, but as this is highly unlikely, we will try to be a little flexible. Traditionally, the follow spots have sold out quite quickly, well ahead of the lead spots. With this in mind, follows are advised to buy their passes ASAP, or to sign up with a lead. Remember, anyone can lead and anyone can follow!

And, lastly, the bottom line: Price! This year, full passes will be in the region of $150. We might tweak this price a little leading up to registration opening on Friday 7th April, but this gives you a ballpark figure. This price will get you access to all workshops, all social dancing events, an awesome Swingtastic 2017 T-shirt, and maybe even a late night snack or two.
