Class Details

7:15pm – 8:15pm: Level 1 Beginner swing dance class
Our level 1 class is suitable for complete beginners and is run on a drop-in basis, which means there is no need to book in advance or bring a partner. Just turn up whenever suits you and get ready to have some fun!

8:15pm – 9:15pm: Level 1.5 Improvers class
Our Level 1.5 class will follow the same rhythm as the Level 1 class but will look at slightly more complex combinations and movements. We will also be teaching more technique with a focus on leading and following to help get your social dancing running really smoothly. All are welcome to this class and if you are feeling comfortable with the footwork in Level 1 why not jump in and have a go?

Taking more than one class on the same evening? Your second class is half price — just £5!

After class: The Foxy Jazz Cafe

Each week after classes we’ll have FREE live music and social swing dancing until midnight at The Foxy Jazz Cafe. Join us as we travel backwards in time to enjoy a Speakeasy-style night of swingin’ music and dance, featuring Ewan Bleach on the first and third Tuesday of each month, and a jazz jam on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month. This is your chance to try out all your new moves to live music!

What is Swing Dancing?

It’s a collection of dances from the 1920s-1940s including the Lindy hop and Charleston. You can read more about it here.
