Our courses are specially designed introduction courses or special one-off classes that are progressive in the way they are taught. Courses need to be booked in advance and only run on the specified dates listed in each course. They are also charged differently than our drop in classes.

If you want more flexibility and be able to just drop-in then check out the 100+ classes per week on our Walk-In Timetable instead.


Introduction to Swing dance 4 Week Course

2022-01-03 20:00
Course Description:
Swing dancing is a energetic and joyful dance born from the blending of West African rhythms and American Jazz music. It can be danced partnered or solo, and in this course we are focusing on partnered dancing.

This dance form focuses on self expression and communication. Just like Jazz music, this dance is improvised! It's a social dance, you don't need choreography to be able to find connection with another person and the music. There is something truly magical about swinging out with your partner to a live jazz band!

In this introduction course, you will learn the foundational rhythms and grooves of swing dance plus how to lead and follow. We'll cover the basic footwork patterns and how to communicate shapes and ideas to your partner. By the end of this course (but hopefully during the course as well) we'll be heading out to social dances to meet the wider community and putting our moves into practice on the social floor.
