Progress your  Dancing

To progress your dancing you will need intensive, quality tuition.
A workshop of this kind has scope far beyond what is possible on a social night out.


We provide workshops that feature a variety of different teaching methods that  enable you to better understand and perform your chosen dance style. Each workshop is carefully balanced to provide you with the right amount of  instructor feedback, and personal attention.


Combining elements of lead / follow technique, musicality, body movement,  improvisation and creativity a Swingsters workshop will propel you towards your next dance  goal.

With the right technical and artistic grounding, the rest is up to you! We teach both at our own venues, at national dance events, corporate and  private functions, and for other dance schools and organisations.
We teach a large range of authentic dances including but not limited to:

  • Lindy Hop
  • 1920’s Charleston
  • Authentic Jazz
  • Balboa
  • Collegiate shag
  • Authentic Blues
  • Jitterbug
  • Boogie Woogie
  • Rock ‘n Roll
  • Peabody

Whether a dance teacher an experienced performer or social dancer looking for detailed in depth analysis or a beginner looking for your first few steps, we have something for you. We teach both group and individual private sessions including couples.
Drop us a line to talk it over.
