Who are Saigon Swing Cats?
We are the cool (Hep) Cats of Saigon who love Swing dancing (a group of dances that developed with the swing style of jazz music in the 1920's - 1940's, with the origins of each dance predating the popular "swing era". In Saigon, we love East Coast Swing, Lindy Hop, Charleston, Balboa and Blues.
We host the Saigon Swing Fest with debut in 2018 and have run the Vietnam Lindy Exchange, a weekend of swing dancing fun for dancers in and out-of Vietnam, since 2009 . 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 NY Show in 2013, British Business Group Vietnam’s Roaring 20s Party 2016.
