Special Guest Teacher for the month of June -  LAURA PERRIAM!

As a classically trained dancer, Laura held a strong aversion to partner dancing until one fateful day in May 2006 when a friend managed to convince her to come along to a blues dancing class. She fell for swing dancing in all its forms and now she dances regularly at as many social nights a week as possible, trains and performs with Harlem Shout, and competes with whoever she can convince to enter competitions with her.


Laura began teaching swing dancing in 2010, and in late 2012 was thrilled to open a new regular venue in South Yarra with her longstanding teaching and dancing partner Joel. Laura loves sharing the dance with as many people as possible, and she especially loves working with dancers who are new to swing dancing and watching their love for the dance flourish.


June 12th - Special Performance by the For Dancers Only Performance Block!
