Registrations Have Now Closed

That’s right! Swingtimate Weekend 2017 has sold out!

Due to an overwhelming response to Swingtimate Weekend 2017 and space limitations at the venue, we have unfortunately had to close registrations. We would like to thank everyone for their support for our first major event and sincerely apologise to anyone who missed out. If you have missed out, please email us your details and we will add your name to the stand-by list and notify you if more spaces become available. We look forward to an awesome weekend in June and an even bigger Swingtimate Weekend (perhaps at a bigger venue) in 2011. Best regards from (a very excited) Allan and Holly.

Ben Morris & Emeline Rochefueille

World Class West Coast Swing Champions

This is your chance to get up close and personal with Champion West Coast Swing dancers Ben Morris & Emeline Rochefueille. Ben is no stranger to the Aussie WCS scene and Emeline is a fresh addition to the Swingtimate team that you are going to love. They can't wait to visit the Gold Coast to teach, dance and mingle with us.

Ben and Emeline's competition wins and reputation are not undeserved. Starting young and growing up in the dance industry, they are well know for their entertaining performances, fun teaching stye and funky movements. Join us on this intimate weekend and come away inspired by this incredible couple!
