Perth City Swing
Perth City Swing is Perth’s newest Swing Dance school, bringing you Lindy Hop (and a little bit of Charleston) only a stone’s throw from the CBD in the lovely North Perth Town Hall. They run classes Tuesday nights, with Level 1 beginners starting at 6:30pm.
If you’ve never tried Lindy Hop or want to bring a friend along, their beginners class is the perfect time to get involved. Each lesson stands on its own, so you don’t need to have been at last week’s class to have fun.
