Echoes of Harlem, Melbourne’s premier swing dance troupe, will perform dances from the 1920s to the 1940s in their debut show: Speak Easy, Swing Hard.

For one night only on Friday 23rd of October, the Thornbury Theatre will transform into a simmering dance den, alive with hot jazz and good ol’ fashioned entertainment.

Between acts, special guests Georgia & The Sentimental Gentlemen will get the joint jumping with music from the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong and Count Basie, giving the audience a chance to bust a move themselves.

Speak Easy, Swing Hard takes viewers on a journey from ragtime to wartime before culminating with the modern swing dance revival. Unknown to most, Melbourne has a thriving community of swing dancers, loyal since its 1990s resurgence in Australia. Echoes of Harlem have been at the forefront of the revival, actively teaching and performing within the community and leading the way for future dancers.
