About Swingland Windsor

A fun evening of great music and dancing with a bunch of really friendly people!

Our Wednesday night classes usually attract between 20 and 30 people - mostly local - from all walks of life, and all age ranges (16+).

Swing dancing is an increasingly popular pastime and is probably the most fun you can possibly have keeping in shape! It is very sociable - come with friends, a partner or on your own - everyone is welcome and you'll soon feel at home!

Please do join our regulars on our brand new Swingland Windsor Facebook page!

What we teach

We teach the original swing dance - the Lindy hop as danced in the great ballrooms of the Harlem Renaissance, such as The Savoy

You will learn all the fundamental steps - with plenty of emphasis on technique to get things right from the very beginning.
