The Perth Swing Dance Society is thrilled to announce that Hullabaloo – The Perth Lindy Exchange will be running for its 14th year from Thursday 20 April to Monday 24 April 2017.

Hullabaloo is a 5 day and night swing extravaganza in Perth which includes workshops with top level international and Australian teachers, five nights of social dancing, amazing live bands and the best DJs in the country.

All the way from Europe, we have the sensational Mikaela Hellsten and Nicolas Deniau, two of the smiliest, loveliest lindy hoppers on the international scene today.

A little closer to home, we have the fabulous Loz Yee, Julia Wharington, Joel Kohn and Kieran Yee coming at you from Melbourne, bringing with them a wealth of knowledge and an infectious sense of fun.

Mark your calendars and stay tuned for further updates! #hulla2017 is coming…

Can’t Stop the Lindy Hop shirts

Posted Sunday 12 June 2016 by Perth Swing Dance Society in , ,

A few years a go the PSDS designed a fun T-shirt for the society. We wanted something other than our logo so Michelle Turner put together this ‘Can’t Stop the Lindy Hop’ design for us featuring original Lindy Hoppers Willa Mae Ricker and Leon James. It is still available on Red Bubble and you can custom design it by choosing different shirt colours, shirt styles and even hoodies. We’ve seen a few people around town wearing them but wanted to remind new and long term dancers that they are available online here. $25AUD for shirts, more for hoodies and other variations.
