Australian Jitterbug Championships 2018

AJC aims to support the development of swing dance in Australia, honor the rich history of lindy hop and other jazz dances and celebrate the sheer fun of swinging out through competitive and social dancing. In 2018, the sixteenth annual Australian Jitterbug Championships will be a big day/night affair, with competition heats in the afternoon and finals in the evening at the spectacular AJC Ball, featuring the music of Jason Downes’ “Fine, Sweet & Tasty”, and plenty of social dancing.
