Classes FAQ's


You can wear whatever you like! There’s no need to dress ‘Vintage’ though you can if you prefer to. It’s a good idea to have at least one change of clothes with you as you can get hot and sweaty when dancing.  Also, do bring deodorant so we can keep the dancefloor smelling fresh.

What can I wear to an event?
Can anyone go to a social/ event?

We welcome everyone to our socials and events! Although please be mindful when signing up to classes that you sign up for the appropriate level.

Do I have to book with a partner?

There’s no need to bring a dance partner with you. Swing dancing is a very social dance and we all dance with each other.

What is a social dance?

A social dance is an opportunity to dance in an non formal and relaxed setting, dancing for the enjoyment of the music and to make new friends!

Events FAQ's


What is a Workshop?

A workshop is, in essence, an extended class. Usually running for longer than a hour, they gives teachers and dancers an opportunity go a little more in depth than your regular weekly classes.

General FAQ's


What's the average age? Am I too old?

You’re never too old to dance and we have dancers of all ages learning and enjoying swing dancing. The age range across our classes is 18-80! Our students predominantly range from their late 20s to 40s, but swing dancing is for everyone!

What is 'Swing'?

Swing is a sound and a dance. Swing music comes under the overall musical umbrella of jazz, and swing dancing is a style of dance that suits swing music. Swing dancing can be upbeat and flashy or slow and sensual. Whatever the pace, the dancing is always an expression of the music that it relates to!
