Swingland's Windsor classes take place on Wednesday evenings, downstairs at The Old Court Arts Centre. Swing dance (Lindy hop) classes for absolute beginners and up.
Learn to Swing & Jive - classes every Wednesday!
Swingland has been teaching in Windsor at The Old Court (formerly The Firestation) for around 10 years now.
We teach Lindy hop which is the original form of swing or "jive" dancing.
In our beginners classes you may join in the partner rotation, or stick with one partner if you prefer. Advance booking is completely optional - you may just turn up and pay in the class if preferred. Come alone, with a partner or a friend, or in a group (sorry, no children or pets).
The classes are taught by Swingland founder Martin Ellis, with help from Lauren Tryggvason.
Our Windsor classes run on Wednesday evenings
Starting out - beginners class - 6.45pm-7.45pm
For those new to swing dancing these drop-in classes are aimed to make those first steps as straightforward and enjoyable as possible. Covering all the basic steps and rhythms of Lindy hop - different material is taught each week and the classes are designed so that you can join any time and you can progress without needing to be there every week. No previous experience required. Fun, social and informative! Rotate partners (no partner needed) or stay with fixed partner - your choice.
Improvers/intermediates class - 8pm-9pm
These classes are aimed at those with knowledge of the steps and rhythms taught in the beginners classes. Partners all rotate in improvers/intermediates.
Each class runs for an hour, and there is 15mins practice time/social in between.
