Cam & Cat
Cam Mitchell is one of the most energetic and playful Lindy Hoppers to come out of Australia, and was lucky enough to find Lindy Hop in 2001.
With a strong passion for the social dance floor, Cam is constantly challenging himself (and his partner) for innovation and creativity and is always excited to see what comes out of the next dance.
Cam has taught all over his native land Australia and across the world including workshops and classes in Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, New Zealand, UK, Ireland, Norway, Edinburgh, The Netherlands and Portugal.
He places a strong focus on social dancing, rhythm, creativity and history (and of course fun!) in all his classes and is bound to leave an impression!
Cat has been lindy hopping since 2005. After 3 years teaching for her University scene and locally around Newcastle, Cat moved back to Liverpool and established ‘Mersey Swing’, and remains creative director of this fast growing scene. After being awarded the Eurostar ‘Spirit of Lindy Hop’ award at ESDC 2013, Cat trained for 6 months in pedagogy with Swing Step Heidelberg, and went on to compete in the biggest contests in the USA and Europe.
Cat is now London based, working with Swing Patrol teaching solo jazz and lindy hop, and travelling worldwide to teach. She is also an acting member of ‘Impropriety’ an improvisational theatre company, and brings this creativity and unique style of performing straight into her dance.
Known for her infectiously fun style, Cat wears her heart on her sleeve and tries to bring fellow dancers into her world. She strives to bring out individuality, positivity and energy from her students, and believes that laughter really is the best medicine.
