Join Rebecca and Dave for a lesson or two in Swing Dancing. What is Swing Dancing? It’s a collection of dances from the 1920s-1940s including Lindy hop and Charleston. Read more about it here.
Level 1 – Absolute beginners class | 7pm – 8pm
These classes are for new dancers and there is no experience required. We go over the basics every week and then throw in some new moves to get you dancing in no time. This class is drop-in, so you don’t need to book in advance and you don’t need to bring a partner.
Level 1.5 – Improvers class | 8.05pm – 9.05pm
This class builds upon the content in Level 1, giving you more moves and technique. If you’re feeling comfortable with the beginners class, you’ll be fine in this one too, and if you are looking forward to joining level 2 then this is the class for you.
Level 2 – Intermediate class | 9.10pm – 10.10pm
You’ve been doing beginners classes solidly for months. You are very comfortable dancing 6 count Lindy hop and Charleston. You’ve learned an 8 count swingout, but maybe just recently and are looking to refine your basics, brush up that swingout and get some new material under your belt. You’re starting to social dance regularly (or have been for a while) and want a little more lead/follow clarity in your life!
