What is Swing dancing? >>
When : Every Tuesday evening.
7:00pm - 8:00pm ... Beginners Swing Dance Class (Level 1)
Fun and friendly classes for new dancers and there is no experience required. We go over the absolute 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 ( just 'drop-in' whenever suits you) and you don’t need to bring a partner.
8:00pm - 9:00pm ... Improvers / Intermediates Swing Dance Class (Level 1.5 / 2)
We mix things up in this class, sometimes building on what we've worked on in the Beginners class, sometimes teaching a dance routine or something completely different. If you are comfortable with the different rhythms (6 & 8 count and Charleston) and want to further develop styling, connection and musicality OR you just really enjoyed the Beginners class and want to be challenged more, then stay for this one too.
9:00pm - 10:00pm ... FREE Practice Time / Social Dancing
Whether you are a beginner or a more experienced dancer, we invite you to come/stay after the classes. We will be playing some great swing music, giving you a chance to practice more, have a dance too or just kick back and relax with a well earned drink!
Cost : £8 per class (Additional classes HALF PRICE if you have already done one other class). Practice/Social dancing is FREE.
