Swing – Jeff Tong and Holly Nicholls
Jeff’s dance career started at the one and only KCL Dance Soc and really has them to thank for what has transpired.

He is also part of the performance troupe The Brat Pack, who take everyone by surprise with their high energy levels and hair-raising aerials. Placing at national and international competitions, Jeff isn’t shy of performing (and flying!) on the big stage, at festivals or on TV.
