Join Alicia and Brian 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 | 8.15pm – 9.15pm
This is for dancers who want to improve after having grasped the basic 8-beat Lindy hop, 6-beat Lindy hop and side-by-side Charleston footwork. While we do break down new moves in class we do not re-cap the basic footwork. Ask us for a refresher before the class if you are unsure or come along to the beginner class and do both! We teach all new moves and technique each week and sometimes offer routine, taster classes or social dancing in this session.
