Weekly Beginner Classes

(7:30pm – 8:30pm Tuesdays and Thursdays)

Love the look of Swing but you’ve never taken a dance class?  This is where to start!  We’ll show you all the basics you need to get you social dancing in no time!

Beginner’s blocks start every 6 weeks, see below for starting dates.

With a touch of vintage flavour, we love to bring the dances, music and style of the 1920’s-50’s to today. Known for our high energy, high flying performances and super fun classes, Canberra Swing Katz specialise in Charleston, Lindy Hop and related Swing Dances.
On Tuesday and Thursday nights YOU could be learning how to do this energetic and tremendously fun social dance! Start in week 1 or 2 and learn all the basics you need to look and feel great on the dancefloor in just 6 short weeks!
Classes are held in Kingston and Dickson at 7:30pm. It’s $17.50 per class or $80 for a 6-week pass.
