About SWAY Dance Academy

SWAY stands for:     Social;     Weddings;     Adults;     Youth.

Lynette and Luke Heubusch officially opened the SWAY Dance Academy on 5 September 2014 at the Surrey Downs Community Centre. As of the 1 January 2015, the SWAY Dance Academy officially took over Garry Roberts School of Ballroom Dancing and ran an intermediate / advanced classes from the Campania Club 5-9 Famechon Cres, Modbury North. Cabarets / Balls were also run from the Campania Club.

In 2020, due to the impact of COVID restrictions and lock downs, and upon reopening, SWAY relocated their Beginner and Youth classes to the Campania Club to better comply with density limitations and spacing.

 

In 2022, due to the ongoing impacts of COVID restrictions and the establishment of a new Event Management Team at the Campania Club, the SWAY Dance Academy had to seek a new venue and relocated their classes to the Molinara Club, 57 Lyons Road Windsor Gardens. SWAY's Cabarets / Balls were relocated to the Ballroom Function Centre (Ukranian Hall) 64-66 Orsmond Street Hindmarsh. Unfortunately due to financial considerations, the Youth classes were unable to be continued at that time.

SWAY continues to grow and supports social dancing in South Australia and is renown for their dance instruction and Cabarets / Balls. Many students (adults and children) have completed dance exams and achieved outstanding results.
