The Perth Swing Dance Society (PSDS) is a non-profit organisation, committed to actively promoting swing dancing, its music and culture in Western Australia.
Social dancing. Live music. Late nights. Good times.
Hullabaloo is a celebration of all things swing dancing in Perth, Western Australia.
It’s a long weekend packed full of streamed workshops with international instructors, live performances, the very best Perth live swing bands as well as the iconic Paul Verevis Mix n’ Match competition.
You may have heard on the grapevine that Hullabaloo is changing a little in 2019?… it sure is, but we guarantee our famous (and cheeky) Hulla spirit is alive and well, it’s just waiting to be unleashed once again!
Thu 25 – Mon 29 April 2019!
We’re very excited to present your Hullabaloo 2019 teaching line up:
Elze Visnevskyte & Peter Kertz
Elze and Peter are maybe just the right amount of crazy you’ve been looking for. She comes from Lithuania, while he comes from Los Angeles and together, they have this Euro-American style that’s all about fun and connectedness. Their musicality, playfulness and creativity are not just parts of their light-hearted personalities as dancers, but also as instructors. For them, Lindy Hop is much more than only leading and following… it’s dancing… trying to feel your partner… and in the meantime having a freaking great time! Their energy is contagious and their class material is stimulating.
Be prepared for loud laughs, crazy fun, and exciting new moves!
Georgia Brooks & Kieran Yee
Heralding from Victoria both Georgia and Kieran are extraordinarily accomplished Australian dancers. Living, dancing and singing in Melbourne, Georgia is a talented vocalist and singing teacher with a bad lindy hop habit. While Kieran is a veteran of the Australian swing dancing scene with an enthusiasm and energy that is as inspiring as it is unpredictable.
Expect the ridiculous with these two incredible teachers who cherish the opportunity to take risks with new ideas while also being incredibly encouraging and practical in their teaching.
JoYsS is a Jazz, Contemporary, Swing and Hip Hop professional dancer who also took acting classes at the school of art “la Comète” in Paris and is a multi-talented performer, choreographer, music producer and teacher.
As a swing dancer, he won first place in the Solo Jazz Contest at the Paris Jazz Roots Festival 2015 as well as first place in the Solo Charleston Contest at ILHC 2015 in Washington DC (USA). Now he tours and teaches all over the world and is one of the most surprisingly versatile solo dancers you’ll ever see.
In his classes he emphasises improving his students movements by teaching them how to better understand their own bodies which fosters coordination, balance and expression. All of which helps to improve a dancers musicality and capacity for improvisation – skills absolutely crucial for solo and partner dancing.
