Swing Riot Dunedin runs some of the top national Swing and Blues dance events in New Zealand. We also run regular workshop weekends and events throughout the year, so keep an eye-out for something that suits you!
Dunedin Midwinter Swing Festival
Our annual dance exchange over Queen’s Birthday weekend. Featuring international instructors teaching workshops over three days, and top local musicians, this event is all you’ll need to keep you warm this winter! A Lindy Hop and Blues event with a great vibe, perfect for newer or more advanced dancers. In fact – registrations are open now for this amazing event.
Karitane Blues Retreat
A wildly successful new initiative in 2018, the Karitane Blues Retreat brings together intermediate and advanced Blues dancers from around New Zealand to support and grow the national Blues dance scene.
This event is taking a break for 2020 but will be back in 2021!
