Taking to the Underbelly Festival for a monthly night of dancing fun, Swing Out! brings the music of the early to mid-twentieth century to London complete with authentic dance routines. During the course of the evening, learn swing choreography from across four decades before taking to the stage and showing everyone what you’ve got.

So, tie up your laces and don your bowtie for a swinging night of live entertainment and dance.
