Swing Dance Classes

Weekly classes for beginners through to more experienced dancers


We offer courses/classes in two partnered swing dances, Lindy Hop and Balboa.  All courses/classes are held in the hall to the rear of Watlington House, accessed via South Street RG1 4RA.  (Please note: there is no vehicular access to South Street via Watlington Street).  There is a dedicated car park with plenty of free parking, also accessed via South Street.  Drive in through the wooden gates and park anywhere except the two spaces marked 'No Parking At Any Time'.  Please don't leave your cars on the road as you may be clamped.​

Lindy Hop foundation classes start at 7.30 pm followed by a class for more experienced dancers at 8.15 pm and Balboa foundation classes start at 9.00 pm followed by a class for more experienced dancers at 9.45 pm.​

All courses consist of 6 consecutive classes and cost £30/head (Concessions £25*) in advance of start date.  If you buy a 6 week course you will also get a practise CD and free entry into one of our monthly swing dances.​

Pay as you go classes also available at £5/head (Concessions £4*) if you are just taking one class during the evening.  If you stay for  more than one class the cost for the whole evening will be £8 (concessions £6*).​

You can also purchase a Discount Card for £72 which is very popular if you are unable to attend regularly.  The card covers 10 classes but you only pay for 9!​

*Concessions = full time students and over 65s.
