RIAC’s Summer Cultural Festival (SCF) was founded in 2011 as part of RIAC’s outreach efforts. In 2012, RIAC’s SCF found it’s role in the community as a platform where newcomers to Newfoundland have an opportunity to explore the thriving local cultural influences while, at the same time, participate in them. The SCF has been growing since 2011.
In 2014, RIAC’s SCF is a two day festival at Victoria Park and includes workshops, two food markets and three concerts. The SCF celebrates cultural diversity and artistic creativity in St. John’s, Newfoundland. Along with musical, dance, and spoken word performances, the Summer Cultural Festival also features cross-cultural workshops and an open air market with unique food and crafts.
ATTENTION DANCERS:
The dance concert at The Ship on Sat Aug 23rd will feature The Brad Jefford Swing Ensemble AND The Skylarks! They’ll be playing swing, world music and jazzy tunes, including some Latin pieces. In between sets will be salsa and Latin DJ’d music…so break out your dance shoes for a night full of fun :)
AND Bailamos St. John’s will be hosting a Salsa Dance Workshop at the festival!

Everyone is welcome to drop by our first lesson, and there is NO PARTNER REQUIRED!

*************
HEY! Have you been leading/following and want to try the opposite role? Try going to Swing I to learn the other side of dancing! All of our instructors have learned both roles and we highly recommend it. It will absolutely make you a better dancer! Plus, you can dance with *anybody*!

Not sure which level will fit you best? The instructors will be able to help you make that decision. Never tried swing before? Drop in for the first class of the session and we’ll show you the ropes! Please note that this session we will not be accepting drop-ins after our first lesson.
*************

WHAT IS IT?:

Don’t know what swing dancing is? Find out on the Lindy Hop on the Rock Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/munswingclub/

7-8pm will be for pure beginners and those with slightly more experience, 8-8.30 will be time for free-form social dancing, 8:30-9:30 will be a class for intermediate/advanced dancers.

We will be exploring more advanced moves during the last part which may be tough for beginners to pick up, but beginners may enjoy and benefit from just watching. We’d also very much like to encourage the advanced students to come out for the free-dancing–it’s all about mingling and having lots of people to dance with!
