AJC 2018 – spectators welcome!
by swingadmin on 13th August 2018
The sixteenth annual Australian Jitterbug Championships is this weekend!
Registrations are in, and this is one of the biggest competition fields ever.
This is the perfect year to come along as a spectator.
– There’s a wide range of events featuring Lindy Hop, aerials, Charleston, Blues, Balboa, Shag, improv and choreography, including the hugely popular Showcase event, which will be run as afternoon heats and evening finals.
– The sensational Jason Downes’ Fine, Sweet & Tasty will play two sets of swinging jazz for social dancing at the AJC Ball, AND play live for some exciting Finals events at the end of the night.
And we’ve made Spectator Tix cheaper than ever, with a ticket option to suit everyone. Your ticket provides entry to the afternoon Heats and the evening Finals, so you choose how much of the action you see.
Cheer your friends or family in the competition events; enjoy great live jazz from the acclaimed musicians in Jason Downes’ Fine, Sweet & Tasty; social dance to the band on the beautiful floor at Collingwood Town Hall.
