Simon & Tash
Simon Glasgow and Natasya Yusoff found swing dancing 7 years ago and have been hooked ever since. They have traveled extensively throughout Australia and New Zealand, and some parts of Asia, learning from some of the best international teachers they could get their hands on. With amazing passion and drive to share their knowledge and skills, they opened SwingOut Central in 2011, which has been going from strength to strength with 3 great venues around Auckland city. Simon and Tash have taught workshops throughout the North Island, won various competitions in Lindy and Blues, judged numerous competitions and even taught workshops in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Known for their fun and friendly classes with a strong emphasis on good technique and interesting lead and follow based moves, they always create a wonderfully warm and welcoming atmosphere in all their classes.
