About Cumberland Shuffle

Cumberland Shuffle is a dance event dreamed up by the dynamic duo of Breanna Perry and Morgan Kestner. For the past five years, this event has brought together dancers for an invigorating weekend focused on the more vintage dances of the swing genre. We want to provide a fun environment for other dancers to be inspired by the rich roots of swing dancing, and a chance to delve into anything old-timey. Whether it's the history, the music, the old dances, the fashion, or other vintage cultural aspects, we want for dancers to be able to comfortably explore (and love) it all! Most of all, we want to give dancers a weekend full of all the aspects that drew us to dance in the first place: great music to move our feet, classes to challenge our minds, social dancing to stimulate our soul, and great people to do all these things with. All we want is to provide you with a dance event you won't soon forget; a one-of-a-kind time you look forward to again and again!
