Private parties

Make your party go with a swing!

A fun beginners swing dance class is a great ice-breaker at birthday parties and weddings, especially where the theme is 1920s, 30s or 40s, and can also be a fun afternoon option for a hen party. We can also provide recorded music of the era and have contacts with some fantastic swing bands too!

We have taught fun classes at many private parties - it's a great ice-breaker and lots of fun! Here are a few common requests:

  • 30th Birthday parties
  • Swing dancing is really popular amongst 20- and 30-somethings - so it's an ideal choice for a 30th Birthday party. Even if you or your friends have never danced swing before you'll have lots of fun. You can just have a class or keep the swing music going for a while after the class for people to try out the steps - or you can theme the whole evening around swing. If you're going to theme the whole evening it's best to be sure that your friends are into the music - otherwise consider starting with swing or mixing it up with more familiar tunes!

  • Hen parties
  • We can provide a fun class as something to do in the afternoon say - either just as something different to try, or prior to going to a swing themed night. We can teach you some jive, swing or Lindy hop - or if you'd rather not partner up, some solo Charleston steps.

  • Weddings
  • If you've hired a swing band for your wedding, why not have a fun class to entertain your guests and show them a few steps to do during the reception? Swing is the perfect music for a wedding - romantic, joyful and popular with all ages. We don't usually recommend having a dance demonstration - your wedding is about you - but a fun class is an excellent option!

How to book

At private parties we know that the emphasis has to be on having fun and involving everyone - and we make sure that's what happens! If you'd like to talk to us about your event, please contact us by e-mail in the first instance.
