The Low Down

The perfect excuse to visit Margaret River

What’s an Exchange?

It’s basically a chance for you to dance as much as you physically can over a long weekend. It’s a festival dedicated to swing dancing, to celebrate the music and culture associated with Lindy Hop. Most importantly, it broadens your dancing vocabulary by becoming acquainted with other dancing scene’s styles and influences. The main focus is social dancing, but we’re including the added bonus of workshops with a couple of fantastic international teachers. It’s a brilliant opportunity to meet new fabulous people that are also into this old timey dance. Plus, who wouldn’t want to show off beautiful Margaret River and all it has to offer? World-class beaches, forests, amazing wine and food, nature hikes and caves make it a destination worth visiting on their own, before you get your feet onto the floor.
