Swing dancing originated as a social dance, and that’s how we like to keep it! 

Our courses are designed to get you feeling confident social dancing asap!  Over a 6-week integrated beginner’s course you will learn all the basic steps and fundamental leading/following techniques you need to look and feel great on the dance floor.  You don’t need to bring a partner (though it helps if you can!), and flat, comfy shoes are best.  No pre-registration is necessary, just turn up on the night.

Beginner’s courses run as 6-week blocks introducing you to Charleston and Lindy Hop (the specific style of swing we do).  With an integrated approach, you’ll be able to use both steps as building blocks for your dancing and improvising in no time! Once you complete one Beginner’s course, you’re ready to join the Intermediate course!  It’s best if you can make it each week, but if you miss one or two classes – don’t worry!  Come back as soon as you can on any night and we’ll catch you up.  You can also commence your course in Week 2.
