Swing Smash

Welcome to Swing Smash!
Swing Smash is a new program of workshops being held at North Melbourne each Wednesday at 8.30 – 9.30pm, with Kara Martin and Nial Bruce.

Each Swing Smash series runs for 6 weeks.
On the 7th week there’ll be a social dancing night.

Each series will highlight a different swing dance style, so across the year you can smash all the different swing styles to the next level.

Each series will run as a progressive course, but just turn up on the night and pay casually, week to week.
