Swing Sister Swing

An original swing dance and swing music show celebrating female choreographers, musicians and jazz dance.

“They are an award-winning, exceptional and innovative all-female dance troupe – but all that glitters is not gold. Some want out.”

Swing Sister Swing takes the audience on a journey behind the glitz and glamor of the classic all-female chorus line. Featuring six powerful women and a banging original score by Two Twenty Two Music it's a story about the politics of partner dance and the magic of what we make together.

The dancing and music is vintage, but this show is no nostalgic throwback, it is a joyous blend of laughter, dance and storytelling that will lift the spirits of anyone who watches it.
