Registrations open for Vintage Partner Dance Series December block!

We're terribly excited at how our very first group of vintage partner dancers are progressing!  You guys are killing it!

We have now opened registrations for the December block with Kenny Nelson and Lexi Keeton which is only 3 weeks long (and only $30) due to us being closed on December 27th.  

The dates are December 6, 13 & 20.  You can register here now!

For the current November group, remember that you can sign up for this too!  Whilst we will be teaching the dance from scratch, the material will be different so you'll definitely still build on your mad skills and be entertained.

Thanks for being part of Smith Street Swing!

Smith Street Swing - Opening November 8th!

1929 Studios are pleased to announce that we are opening our very first weekly venue running every Tuesday night on Smith Street in Collingwood!

Check out the details here.  We have drop-in swing classes, plus a 4 week block of vintage partner dancing!  Of course, there will also be social dancing starting at 8:30pm.

Our grand opening will be on the 8th of November!  We'd love to see you there!

"For Dancers Only" sells out in less than 2 hours!

Amazingly our first solo dance intensive with Ramona Staffeld - For Dancers Only - sold out in less than 2 hours after we opened registrations to the public!  Sorry to everyone who missed out, we have received a really inspiring amount of interest from people who didn't make it into the class so we look forward to being able to offer more workshops like this in the future! 

Thanks to everyone for supporting Ramona Staffeld and 1929 Studios!
