Learn to dance

New to swing dancing?

First steps...!

Whether you've never danced a step in your life and are convinced you've got "two left feet" - or you're an experienced dancer looking to learn a new style - we can help you!

For anyone starting something new, choosing where to learn can be quite daunting!

Our classes are really fun and friendly - and we always have new people starting every week. As a specialist swing school we have a fantastic reputation based on the quality of our teaching, our attention to detail and our passion for the dance - and we have been teaching since 1998.

You don't need to book for any of our regular weekly "drop-in" classes (see dates and locations below) - you just turn up - and you don't need a partner either.

At our weekly "club nights" (C Jam and A-Train) there is music and dancing after the classes - this is a great opportunity to practise the steps and to get to know "the scene" too. Look out for beginners classes at our monthly dances (eg Elysian Den) and special events as well!

Prices vary depending on the format of the night - but are generally £10-£15 (with discounts available for NUS/Equity and for advance booking). Check out our discounted Class Cards too!

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 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.
