MSF – what a weekend!!
by swingadmin on 11th June 2019
Six sensational international instructors, 2 days of inspiring workshops, 4 nights of social dancing bliss, 2 sizzling bands, 11 smokin’ DJs, 7 locations and about 400 dancers.
What a mammoth event was Melbourne Swing Festival 2019.
To all those who traveled, whether across town or across the globe, we thank you for coming together on the dance floor to learn, to party, to have fun and swing hard.
As we catch up on the sleep we missed, and miss the friends we caught up with, we also want to say a heartfelt thanks to the many people who worked hard to make this event happen.
