Swing and Social Partner Dance Classes

We run ongoing Swing and social partner dance classes at the novice, beginner and intermediate levels. The classes are designed to help you improve your fundamental skills in dancing with a partner. All classes focus on communication and connection with your partner.

You can join any class at any time. Each person is at a different place. Everyone gets out of each class, whatever they are ready for. Wherever you are is the best place to start.

No partner and no experienced needed. Come with a good attitude, do not worry and enjoy the journey.

Following are some series of classes we have run.

A series of four classes starting all the way at the beginning with simply stepping in place. This class is a great starting point for novice dancers and shows people how they can dance to any type of music.

Introduction to Swing Dancing
