The concept of Slowdown was born in 2015 with the desire to “dance all the dances” and bring many swing communities together who might normally attend different events.
We are also inspired by how much we can learn from and challenge each other, and how much incredible talent there is right here in Australia
The music for this event was always going to be a unique challenge but we have worked closely with our incredible musicians and DJs to make it possible for blues dancers, balboa dancers and lindy hoppers to share the same floor.
We have developed a Code of Conduct to ensure participants feel welcome and safe at all events and throughout the weekend. Most of all, we hope that you’ll “Expand your horizons and open your minds” – and you’ll be sure to have a great weekend.
