So you’ve been taking classes and ready for a new challenge? The Pro Am (abbreviation of Professional-Amateur and typically a teacher-student partnership) is a Jack n Jill style contest that randomly pairs up newer dancers with our HK Swings teachers in a battle of swinging skills. It’s a fun way to get your feet wet in the exciting world of lindy hop contests.

This contest is open and encouraged for dancers of all experience to enter – and you don’t need a partner, as there is some luck of the draw in forming the partnership, we will randomly give you one of our teachers as a partner on the night.

Judging (by guest teacher Bryan Chung*) will be based on creativity, having fun and pushing personal boundaries, taking into consideration how long you’ve danced for and crowd reactions, so whether you are relatively new or have been dancing a few years it will be a level playing field!

This is a wonderful opportunity to have fun in a friendly environment , and get a taste of what it feels like to take part in a dance contest. Sign up and bring along a few friends to cheer extra loudly for you when you are showing off your swinging stuff!

*Bryan will be teaching Sat Dec 9 at our Music, Balboa & BBQ event, check out the details at: https://www.facebook.com/events/1920441151617289/
