Swing Patrol Performance Troupe Auditions 2019 – The Bluebelles
We’re looking for some new belles to join us in 2019! As Swing Patrol Melbourne’s solo dancing troupe, The Bluebelles pride ourselves on being a strong and supportive community of women. We mainly focus on vintage jazz and Charleston dancing but have been known to explore chorus line, blues, and even 1980s-inspired aerobics! We work on dance technique across a variety of concepts, as well as work on routines to perform throughout the year.

Audition Venue: Dance Factory (Studio 4, upstairs), 225 – 227 Swan St, Richmond VIC 3121
