Believe it or not, among all the chaos in Bangkok, there lies a small community where every step of their lives aren’t moving with time. Their steps spin, twist, and swing alongside groovy jazz music. It’s a true utopia where they hold hands, communicate only by body language and let loose with an energy of freedom like no other. Find out more about this vibrant community, and how to start your own community from this lively talk.

Chayapong "Oat" Naviroj is the co-founder of ‘Bangkok Swing’ group. Today, the swing dance community he created has expanded at an incredibly massive scale. Over 70% of members are Thais and around 80 members are regulars! Swing dance classes are available every Thursday and Saturday - it’s where a thousand of new faces show up to dance their hearts out!

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
