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.
Our BLOCK PARTY REVELS, a Holidays Celebration on the 25th of December in the Boudoir Lounge at the Sofitel Saigon saw 80 guests who came out to enjoy live jazz music, special performances, cabaret competition, best dressed DAZZLE contest and made great merry memory.
An amount of VND 4,000,000 will be sent to Christina Noble Children's Foundation who support orphaned, abandoned and vulnerable children in Vietnam and Mongolia to give them back their childhood.
