Swingvasion Dance Band

The Swingvasion Dance Band as featured on ITV drama HomeFires, May 2015 

 

Being the creative director and chief choreographer of a talented group of performers that dance all over the world, it made sense to unite Velody’s musical talents with her knowledge about what works for Swing & Jive dancers, and so the Swingvasion Dance Band was born!
