The Swing Sesh specializes in Swing Dancing, the term used to describe both social partner dances and solo dance associated with swing music. Swing dancing is a form of vernacular American Jazz dance. Various traditional styles of swing dancing exist, all of which originated from the United States. It is the social and street dancing forms which sprung up and evolved around the country during the golden era of swing Jazz (roughly from the 20s to the early 50s).

Chris Harm is one of the trainers who is highly regarded around Australia as both a strong, highly athletic Lindy Hop performance dancer and as a highly skilled and masterful social dancer. Chris has a great love of Lindy Hop, balboa and especially blues dancing.

Another one is Kate (Buggs) Sutcliffe, one of Adelaide's original swing dancers known for her fun, goofy style and flaming red hair. Since 2003 she has Lindy-Hopped around the country and the world, including three years spent dancing and performing in Montreal, Canada.

Whether leading or following, Kate's principal objective is to pack as much fun as possible into a three minute song and leave her partner with a big fat grin!
