Shake That Thing is back for 2022!!

Welcome to all the tantalizing details about our upcoming workshops and social weekend with international teachers  Peter Flahiff and Lauren Smith!

This spring is swinging with a social dancing and workshop weekend in Canberra!

Where: Wesley Hall, Forrest ACT
When: October 7th – 9th, 2022
What: Three nights of social dancing, two full days of Lindy, Shag and Balboa workshops and lots of fun!
Bonus: Lindy & Bal Masterclasses October 6th at Majura Hall!

Nothing boosts your dancing enthusiasm and confidence like immersing yourself in a weekend of workshops! Until you experience it for yourself, you can only imagine how worthwhile and satisfying it is to spend a weekend learning your favourite dances.

Through our years of experience, we know how worthwhile workshops are for your dancing and general enjoyment on the social floor. Whether you’ve made the decision that swing dancing is your thing or not, workshops provide a really fun way to get a fresh perspective, learn a lot about yourself and enjoy. We believe that through this experience, you and those around you will grow as dancers and find new things to enjoy about dancing, and that’s always great for the scene!

Thank you soooooo freaking much for putting this event on this year. Best fun, best dances, and the needed injection of inspiration I needed.

It ran so smoothly, the smiling faces were an added bonus, and seeing everyone dancing my favourite dances was just pure delight.

First workshop I’ve attended in over 10 years and it was amazing! Thanks to the teachers and to the Swing Katz for organising 😃
