Routine time at Middle Park!
Every year, Swing Patrol puts on a performance ball and every venue gets the chance to show off their mad new skills for their family, friends and the community, by learning and performing a complete routine. This year, the Swing Patrol Performance Ball is on Saturday, 7 October 2017.

This year Middle Park has teamed up with Swing Patrol Camberwell to create a fantastic Middle-well/Camber-park routine bonanza! We’re so excited.

Why join in?
Learning the performance ball routine is a really great chance to embed social dancing sequences in your muscle memory, and better remember all the wonderful things you learn in class by practicing them week to week! This not only develops your confidence to social dance, but your dancing skills as a whole. It’s also fun to get to know your friends in class better week to week!

If you choose to join in to learn the routine, you don’t have to perform it (though you’re of course welcome to come along to support and cheer and take a bow with us etc!)

Basically, it is going to be the best fun.

How hard is it?
We have pitched the routine at Level 1.5 – 2. We will be teaching all the moves in the routine separately in our Level 1 classes at 7.30, so that our newer dancers (or more experienced dancers as well, if you like!) can come to the routine classes doubly prepared to put it all together!

When is it?!
Routine classes start: Wednesday 16 August 2017 at 6.30pm!

Come to the Level 2 classes to learn the routine with the group, and then stay for the Level 1 class to brush up on the moves we will add in next week! $24 for both classes.

More info:
We will be posting the routine videos and spreadsheets to our Facebook group! https://m.facebook.com/groups/131479534556



7:30pm Level 1
Total Beginners
Drop in any week, all welcome! Each week we start from scratch with the basic steps so you can start anytime. We rotate partners throughout the class so no partner required, all you need is to show up and we’ll sort you out from there. If you’re keen to get started or want to work on your basic technique, this is the class for you.

Public Transport
Catch the number 96 light rail which runs down Bourke St and Spencer St in the city. Get off at the Middle Park Stop and walk into the park.
Travelling south (towards St Kilda) along Canterbury Rd turn left into the driveway at the pedestrian lights opposite Middle Park Hotel – It looks like a footpath going under a light rail bridge but it is a driveway! Take a sharp left and you’re in the Bowls Club car park.
