Swing Dance Society

Everyone is welcome at our lessons, no previous dance experience necessary! Lessons are structured to provide the basics to anyone new and also to build through the moves for more experienced dancers.

Newbies is for people who have never tried swing dance before, and will teach you the basic footwork.

Beginners/Improvers lessons give you new moves each week to build on your social dancing repertoire. Everyone is welcome!

Intermediates will improve your technique, musicality and core body movement. This class will focus on moves in more detail. It is recommended that those who come to intermediates will have a few weeks of beginners' lessons under their belt and are comfortable with basic moves.



All lessons are scheduled for an hour, unless otherwise noted.

Spring term lessons start from the week commencing 27th January.
