Join Rupert and Michaela 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 2 – Intermediate class | 8.15pm – 9.15pm
We will assume a basic grasp of 8-beat and 6-beat Lindy hop and Charleston. We will push your ideas, technique and skills further. The class is designed to support the development of your leading and following skills as well as your own personal creativity. We will move faster than in level 1. If you are unsure about joining this class, please speak to one of the teachers who can help you decide.
Level 3 – Advanced class | 9.25pm – 10.25pm
For those looking to take their dancing up a notch. This class is all about refining core technique and working on some trickier vocabulary. Our aim is to provide some fab high level learning and really push each person to get the most fun out of their dancing and develop into an even more awesome dancer. Are you ready for the challenge?!
