Vintage Jazz Collective
Catering to the Lindy Hop, Blues, and Balboa dance communities, the Vintage Jazz Collective brings to light rare collections of swing music straight from the jazz era. Each tour they perform hand-selected favorites from a different collection curated by a band leader of the swing era.
DJ Ann Sychterz
Ann (DJ Bubbles) began swing dancing in 2008 in Waterloo, Canada (not far from Toronto). 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.
