Long story short, we teach swing and blues dancing! 🙂

Every 2nd & 4th Tuesday in May.. Dates June & July tbc.


Swing dance is an umbrella term for a group of dances that developed with the swing style of jazz music in the 1920s–1950s, with the origins of each dance predating the popular swing era during the Great Depression in the United States. Nowadays, most popular partnered swing dances are Lindy Hop, Charleston, Collegiate Shag and Balboa. Additionally, Charleston can be danced solo as part of the broader dance category; Solo Jazz.

Blues dance is a family of African-American vernacular dances including social dances and movements that grew alongside the many styles of blues music throughout the United States.


Also known as the happiest of all dances, it is characteristic of Lindy Hop to have a therapeutic effect for people dancing it! On contrary to the common belief of the outsider, Lindy Hop can be danced to a wide range of tempos, sometimes being rather smooth and gentle and sometimes full of joy, energy and authentic craziness! 🙂
