Swing Me-ow Saigon Ơi
Don't miss out on the next big swing dance festive weekend including 1 night dinner on a river cruise in Saigon, Vietnam with Saigon Swing Cats!
- Why Swing Me-ow? We are the cats who love to swing out, meow!
- Why Saigon? This is not the official name of Ho Chi Minh city but it is what all Saigonese would still like to call it.
- What is Ơi? It is how Vietnamese ask for attention, by putting [name] + ơi.
We are thrilled to present you the Professor Cunningham And His Old School Band (NYC) who will swing 3 nights for us, and our Instructors: Carlos Machava (Maputo, Mozambique) who will teach us Afro Swing, Lainey Silver (NYC) & Hong Wee (Singapore) who will teach us Balboa, Mariko & Shinichiro (Osaka) who will teach us Lindy Hop this coming September 27 - 29, 2019!
Saigon Swing Cats is a community of Swing Dance lovers in Saigon since 2006. We keep this jazz vintage dance art alive and kicking and you should be dancing with us!
