High Level Swing Outs with Nicole and Scott

Swing Patrol is pleased to offer a special high level learning workshop with Nicole Smith and Scott Cupit. You’ll focus on perfecting your swing outs and finessing your lindy hop with these two extremely experienced instructors.

About Nicole:
Nicole Smith is an Australian Lindy Hop legend. When Universal Studios auditioned around the country many years ago, they chose Nicole, who then worked in Osaka Japan as one of their premier dancers. She has won many awards over the years and it’s great to see her back on the social dance floor. Nicole is famous for her magical swivels, classical body movement and incredible flow as a dancer. Nicole has taught for Swing Patrol for many years and we are delighted to have her back in front of our dancers.

About Scott: Scott Cupit is one of the Swing Patrol founders and Directors and just this year has been guest teaching all over Europe from Romania, London, Spain, Germany and the Netherlands. Known as a first class Lindy Hop teacher, you will love his classes that will have great technical nuggets as well as some laughs along the way. It’s great having Scott back in his hometown so make the most of it and get in front of these two great friends.

Cancellations and Refunds

Some of our venues have a fixed capacity so we close off places for participants at a set point. For this reason, cancellations and refunds are not possible without 24 hours notice as we may have turned away other dancers. Thanks for understanding.
Where applicable, a full or partial refund (less administration fee) may be available up to close of registrations. Contact
After close of registration, no refunds will be issued.
We are pretty friendly and approachable so send an email and hopefully we can assist you!


So, Nicole & Scott have lived in different countries for the last ten years, but they used to perform together a lot. Here’s some grainy footage of them in action in Sydney alongside Dax & Takumi.
