teaching team

Meet the dancers who facilitate the classes at Cape Town Swing, spreading the joy of lindy hop around the city!

Current Team

The CTS teaching team has grown significantly in size and structure since the school was first established as Boogie Back Dance Co. by Jeannie Elliott in 2012, kicking off the swing scene in Cape Town. Now we're ten strong and growing, eager to share this dance around the city.
