Thanks Martin Lasthein for the original artwork!Cám ơn Tháng Chín for catomizing the artwork!

Even though it is possible to social dance again as the country has resiliently fought against the Covid-19 pandemic, we would encourage you to:

1️⃣ Stay home if you have just got to the city from higher-risked area via public transportation.

2️⃣ Stay home if you don't feel well.

3️⃣ Wash your hands with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer before entering and as frequently as you can during the whole time of your stay

Thank you so much for your understanding, and please know that we care!

Who are Saigon Swing Cats?

We are the cool Cats of Saigon who love Swing dancing, a group of social dances that developed with the swing style of jazz music in the 1920's - 1940's. In Saigon, we dance the Lindy Hop most of the time, a dance style originated in Harlem, New York City within the African American community in the early 1930’s , the Charleston, Blues and some Balboa. We belong to the wider global community of swing dancers, lindy hoppers, authentic jazz dancers around the world who share the common values of the Lindy Hop left as a legacy from the original Lindy Hoppers.
