Dancing, music and smiles amongst the greenery of the Adelaide Botanic Garden… delightful!
Join friends and family for a day of swing dancing, live music and a community picnic.
Put your dancing shoes on, learn some dance moves, and join the Swing Dance Adelaide community in dancing to the tunes of a live band - the appropriately named Garden Animals.
Music and garden loving non-dancers also welcome. Vintage or botanically themed attire encouraged.
The workshop, presented by Matty from Swing Out Adelaide, is suitable for all ages - no swing dance experience or partner required (but registrations encouraged).
11am-12pm - swing dance workshop
12-3pm - social swing dancing to live music and DJ sets, swing dance performances and community picnic.
