FEATURING THE AUSTRALIAN swing dance championships

Come along and join in or watch all the excitement and action of the Australian Swing Dance Championships 2019. A fantastic night to be entertained by some of the country's best dancers competing for great trophies, National Titles and prizes. 

Competition dancing has always been a part of the Lindy Hop scene and was always a highlight at the Savoy Ballroom in Harlem. The ASDC caters to all levels of dancers, with several events, including Balboa, Teams Events, Juniors, Solo Jazz and the ever popular Mix n Match (prev. titled Jack n Jill) where no set partner is required.

If you’re a newer competitor, the energy, comradery and support from fellow competitors will put you at ease and we can’t wait to see you on the dance floor and cheer you on!

For those not competing, Social Dancing will also take place throughout the night, so everyone gets a dance.

Now You Has Jazz

Join us for the official closing party of SLX 2019. Dance with your new friends and party till we meet again at next year's SLX or another national event.

The Standard Bowl is the perfect venue for our last event of the weekend and is by far a favourite for most. A perfect venue to relax, have a drink, knock down some pins in the bowling alley, or just Swing Out!

This dynamically transformed space combines Americana styling, Darlinghurst cheekiness and an electric atmosphere. The dance floor is framed by 4 bowling alleys, a bar, exposed brick walls littered with American themed street art and a overlooked by a mezzanine level, complete with pinball machines and pool tables, with unobstructed views of the main floor and stage area. A true party venue and atmosphere!

Our live band for the night will be Queen Porter Stomp, and our DJ's will ensure the dancing never ends!

This is an over 18's licensed venue with full bar service available. No BYO food or drinks will be permitted into the venue.
