Prices update – January 2021

Did you know that Canberra Swing Katz may be registered as a small business, but we run in a not-for profit manner?

That’s because we believe in sharing what we love and making it as accessible as possible. We’ve resisted for YEARS, but sadly we can’t deny any longer that our costs keep increasing.

After all this time we are having to pass on a small increase to class prices, but you can still save a bundle with a pass!

As a thank you to you all for your support and understanding, this is a heads up that prices will be increasing slightly as of NEXT WEEK, so you can still go to our website and buy classes and passes at current prices until Tuesday Jan 12.

Classes are back!

Woohoo! Classes are back next week with your favourite line up of teachers and classes, plus something new(ish)!

Have you done our beginners course, but want a little more before joining intermediate, or you want to brush up on your fundamentals? Then BEGINNERS+ is the class for you! This short session after our Tuesday beginners class is tailored each week to specifically target areas you want to work on to feel more confident and have even more fun on the dance floor.

Classes are held at Majura Hall Dickson at 7:30pm. It’s $13 per class or $65 for a 6-week pass.

Back to Dancing with Swing Katz

With the easing of restrictions, we can’t wait any longer, WE’RE GOING BACK TO DANCING!
We will have a special, modified program to help us comply with the current level of restrictions to keep you safe while trying to get in the best dancing possible.
**Please read the details carefully, as there are some provisos and some changes to our usual way of doing things.**
Numbers for all classes are limited, so you will need to register here:
You can register for more than one session, but please read the note on pricing below. You can turn up on the night and see if there are any spaces available, but we strongly discourage this.
Covid Special Pricing: Our pricing structure has been modified temporarily in order to keep our doors open while encouraging you off the couch! Classes for the modified program are just $10 for your first class, plus $5 for each additional class you stay.
We’ve listened to your feedback and are really excited about our condensed program for Thu June 25 and Thu July 2. Classes are shorter to allow for sanitation between classes, so we’ll be making the most of the time we’ve got with lots more dancing!
