Mix & Match

We believe competitions can be friendly and exciting. They can make you grow as a dancer and inspire others too. Registrations for Mix & Match will open in August.


Shirt Tail Stompers

The Shirt Tail Stompers have been recognised as one of Europe’s best social dance bands.
Formed in 2010 for the London Lindy Exchange, they have played numerous dance camps and shows in over 25 countries all over the world.
They have a passion for swing music and movement, with their extensive knowledge and experience of social dancing. Truly appreciating the art of swing and knowing its place in history, they are heavily influenced by Fats Waller, Duke Ellington, Fletcher Henderson, Count Basie and many other greats from the swing and trad jazz era of the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s.
They are led by Steven Coombe who not only is a experienced trumpet player but also a wonderful dancer and teacher.

Open Stage
Thursday to Sunday nights

Share a dance performance! If you have an act prepared, alone or in a couple/group, this is the place to show it. We’ll ask you not to pass a 3-minute piece and register first, sending us a brief description, name and song to lbswing.com@gmail.com

Street Parade
Sunday afternoon

This is where you can show what you learned at our Tasters. All the times you jammed and danced will be celebrated as we dance through the town of São Pedro do Sul. This is a way to give back to the local community that welcomed some crazy lindy hoppers, share our culture, and bring some smiles.
