Caitlin Wellman & the Sugar Foot Stompers!

The Sugar Foot Stompers are a Toronto based swing band made by and for dancers! Started by long time swing dancers Caitlin & Steve Wellman, they have combined their music and dance experiences to create a band that is meant to get you out of your seats. With a song selection of classic swing tunes that also draws from Toronto’s rich New Orleans Trad connections, they are still a treat for non-dancers as well.

DJ Ann Sychterz

Ann (DJ Bubbles) began swing dancing in 2008 in Waterloo, Canada (not far from Toronto) and now lives in the US. Since getting her first songs, she has DJed in her home scenes including the one she founded in Switzerland called Swingtime Lausanne. She has had the fortune of playing swing for evenings and workshops around the world as well as she is the perennial head DJ at Great Lakes Balboa Escape in Chicago. Digging through old stuff and new (soft spot for the original stuff), small group to big band to Newport, North American and European, she aims to create an atmosphere worthy of creativity and playing around with the dance.
