Video taster of our Beginners Class

Our brand new term of Beginners Swing dancing has started again in January 2019, we loosely follow the school terms, so we started the NEW Beginners again after the Christmas Break and will finish at Easter time. We never break for 'Half Term' though.

Within the first few weeks of the start of 'term' is the best time to come along. Feasibly you can join in any week but it gets harder to catch up the longer we are into the term. If you are brand new to dancing we would recommend that you start as soon into the term as possible. Each week we teach the basic 6 count step, then revise what we did the previous week then we teach a new move. This means that if you come each week it is one new move. If you miss a week or two it doesn't matter as we always do revision. You don't need to bring a partner, but if you can, that's great too. We are not exclusive, everyone is welcome; all ages, shapes & sizes - you don't need to be young and fit, this dancing is for everyone.

We teach proper American swing dance which is based on the original dance called Lindy Hop. We do not teach any 'Modern Jive' type stuff, although we do teach to all types of music. There is no particular dress code but comfy casual clothes are better for lessons and then dressing up for dances.

The cost of the beginners class is only £5 which includes a 45 minute before and after class practice session if you would like to stay on to practice the steps you have learned.

Come and give it a go!
