Join our Gold Coast Dance School Entertainment Troupe
Our Swing On In Dancers celebrate the best that the Swing Era had to offer to help inspire a new generation of swing dancers. Our entertainment troupe is a combination of the experience and passion of our world-class instructors. Our instructors are every bit as passionate about swing dancing as our students and together we love to bring exciting and entertaining performances to new audiences.
The Swing On In Dancers formed in 2015 by Chrissy and Ray Keepence from Swing On In. Our swing dance entertainment troupe has since become a highlight of the south-east Queensland swing scene. Our dance troupe have performed for the Queensland Bleach Festival’s inaugural Annual Dance Affair, the Ipswich Festival as well as private functions including vintage-themed weddings.
Our Dance Troupe is dedicated to engaging with local communities to help spread the fun that swing dancing offers!
