Meet The Scene Ball 2020
This event has been cancelled for 2020. Sadly, amid current health concerns, holding a big swing dance ball, with a large number of people partner dancing, has become an event that cannot run at this time.
Nice to meet you … No matter how long you’ve been dancing, come celebrate our scene and dance to live swinging jazz.
Come and meet the whole scene!
Affectionately known as ‘The Beginners Ball’, this is always a highlight of the year and a great opportunity to meet everyone involved in our Melbourne scene. Join teachers and students from all of our venues across Melbourne, catch up with friends and make new ones. It’s a favourite Swing Patrol tradition, as we welcome newcomers to our community of dancers and celebrate with a fabulous Ball.
* live swing band, supported by swing DJ
* complimentary beginner dance lesson to start the night
* inspiring performances by Swing Patrol troupes and special guests
* heaps of social dancing
Come and dance at this cool new venue, close to Batman Train Station and Sydney Rd trams, and with onsite parking.
