Lisa Clarke & Fabien Vrillon Swing Workshop!

SAVE THE DATES for this exciting workshop with international dance champions Lisa Clarke and Fabien Vrillon! Locations and times are set; class information available soon.

Fabien and Lisa met in Herrang, Sweden in 2010 and have been teaching and dancing together ever since. Coming from different backgrounds, they both bring their own particular expertise, talents, and enthusiasm to the partnership. Fabien comes from Grenoble, France and has been teaching swing dancing since 2004, specializing in lindy hop and blues, with a love of choreography. Lisa is a professional dancer from London, now living in France. Classically trained from the age of 6, she later discovered and fell in love with lindy hop and blues and has immersed herself in all things swing ever since. Together and separately they have competed and placed in many competitions including the International Lindy Hop Championships and European Swing Dance Championships. Their fun-natured teaching style and ability to break down movements make a perfect mix for those wanting to progress in their dancing.

Discounted pre-registration will be available until Thursday, Sept. 14. You may register in person at the weekly Thursday night swing dance at Ong King (cash or check), or via PayPal (use the Donate button on our website).
