Learn to swing dance

Swingland teaches swing dancing - Lindy hop (also known as "Jitterbug" or "Jive") and related dances (including East Coast "6-count" Swing, Charleston, authentic Jazz and more). We've been teaching professionally since 1998.


  • Drop-in classes

  • 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 all our drop-in classes include essential practice time. Often our drop-in classes are part of an evening where you can dance afterwards to live or recorded music.

  • Workshops

  • Our workshops are designed to progress and improve your dancing with in-depth technique and styling points. The numbers are limited so that we can give more individual attention than in our regular group classes. Often as you are learning you will reach a plateau - for example moving from beginners to intermediates classes - and this is where a workshop can really help move you to the next level!

  • Private lessons

  • Private tuition can help you progress more quickly - epsecially when combined with group classes and plenty of practice.

  • Wedding dances

  • Spurred on by Youtube and TV shows like Strictly Come Dancing, lots of couples are choosing to make their wedding "first dance" a bit more special with some prior tuition or even choreography. We can help with anything from a few simple steps to a full-blown routine!
