Showdance at Swingkatten

If you attend any of Swingkatten’s events, you may be lucky enough to experience our two eminent show groups, MessAround and U-Town Lindy Hoppers. They also take bookings to show up at your event!

MessAround

MessAround

MessAround is Swingkattens show dance group that specializes in dances from the swing era, all from Charlston from the 1920th’s to swing classics from the 50th’s. They  offer tasters, workshops and last but not least zippy performances in the swing cultures’s spirit.

We have incorporated jazz culture with everything included in this: music, fashion, joy, improvisation, advanced dance technique and a passion to perform! This joy is shown in dances as lindy hop, balboa, tap, charleston and authentic jazz.

U-Town Lindy Hoppers

The show group was founded in March 2019 by a group of excited swing dancers. Since then they have been active performing at several occasions in Uppsala. The style of the group is a mix of different swing dances with a main focus on Lindy hop and Solo jazz. They draw inspiration for their choreographies, both old and well known such as California routine, First stops, Big Apple, Mama stew and Tranky doo.
