Join Rich and Ruth 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 | 7.10pm – 8.10pm
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 | 8.15pm – 9.15pm
Interested in taking it that step further? If you were comfortable in the first level 1 class, then we encourage you to stick around. This class will generally build from the footwork learnt in the level 1 class from the same evening. We will also start you on your journey towards the social dance floor, the etiquette and floor-craft that is involved. Together, we’ll guide you step-by-triple-step to your first social dance.
