Drop-in classes

Drop-in swing dance classes

  • no need to book, just turn up
  • no previous experience needed
  • no partner needed
  • start any week

Drop-in classes are where most people start learning to swing dance - they're fun, friendly and accessible. You don't need to be there every week, you don't need a partner, and most of our drop-in classes include essential practice time too.

Shown below are dates for the next three months - for dates after that, please see our calendar.
