Swing Dens: Beginner-friendly social dancing all over London!

WHAT IS A SWING DEN?

Swing Dens are for new swing dancers! We know how daunting your first social dancing steps can be. We now have Swing Dens on different dates and in different locations all around London: North, North West and East.

The general format involves an accessible taster class at the beginning of the night, and two teachers roaming around afterwards, ensuring you have someone to ask questions of when required. The music is carefully chosen to ensure it is beginner-friendly. But don’t worry, there will always be a range of tempos… we just ensure that the tracks are generally about three minutes in length. We know that a new dancer may not want an eight minute long song straight up!

The culture of these nights is to be supportive, chilled out and friendly. A place where you can make mistakes, try new things, have a laugh together and enjoy your journey without feeling intimidated by anyone. We hope to see you out swingin’ at a Swing Den in the near future. If you have any questions, read out dedicated blog post ‘What is a Swing Den’ or email us at [email protected].
