OUR CLASSES

We offer four classes every Wednesday night. Our classes are organized in progressive monthly series and we encourage students to sign up and attend the whole series. Nevertheless you can usually drop-in, check this FAQ for details.

Some lessons are solo classes, most lessons are partnered classes. Partnered swing dancing is a role based dance. You have to choose between the role of “leader” or the role of “follower”, and stick with it for the duration of the series class or drop-in. Check this FAQ for more information. Unless otherwise specified, you do not need a partner to come to class.
