The Undead Take Manhattan

It’s the 1930s and the streets of Harlem are filled with the sounds of swing music, the vibrancy of lindy hop, the beauty of balboa and… the undead?! Dancers spill onto the street as dance halls are overrun by all manner of ‘ghoulies and ghosties, and long-leggedy beasties, and things that go bump in the night’.

Drawn from their graves, swamps and coffins by the intoxicating beats, the undead would rather dance with you than devour your brains. Vampires Lindy Hop with pin up girls, sailors swing out with banshees, and zombies Charleston with aspiring actresses!

Canberräng 2016 gives you Manhattan as you’ve never imagined it before – a wild mix of horror and sophistication where paranormal beings come out to play alongside the jazz loving socialites of New York City.

Save the date and be sure to be in Canberra for this amazing swing dancing festival! More details to come soon.
