Laura Knight
Laura began her dancing journey back in 2009. Before walking into a Swing Patrol class her only dance experience had been leaping about to punk bands. She was instantly hooked on the music, the people and the joy of Lindy Hop. She binged on dance classes attending four nights a week for pretty much the first year.

Laura has a real passion for Swing music and social dancing, you will see a focus on both these things in everything she teaches. She emphasises personal expression and a connection to both the music and your partner in dancing. Laura believes that social dancing is where magic happens.

Cam Mitchell

Cam found Lindy Hop in 2001 and is one of the most energetic and playful Lindy Hoppers around.  

With a strong passion for the social dance floor, Cam is constantly challenging himself (and his partner) for innovation and creativity and is always excited to see what comes out of the next dance.

Cam has taught all over his native  Australia and across the world including workshops and classes in Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, New Zealand, UK, Ireland, Norway, The Netherlands, Portugal and Germany and also a second time at the world famous Lindy Shock in Budapest, Hungary.
