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 hosted the Saigon Swing Fest in 2018, Swing Into Spring in January 2019 and SWING MEOW SAIGON OI in September 27 - 29, 2019. We used to organize the Vietnam Lindy Exchange, one of the most wanted dance exchanges in Asia since 2009, now with its own professional team, which will open registration this month October 2019 for the 2020 version happening MARCH 6-7-8 in Hoi An town!

We have also participated in various performances in Saigon: AmCham Vietnam’s Ball 2009, Poussieres De Vie's Kermesse Festival 2011 & 2012, Saigon Big Band's New Year Show in 2013, British Business Group Vietnam’s Roaring 20s Party 2016.
