Welcome to Swingtown Rebels!  We are a fun community of dancers in Christchurch who teach, perform and social dance an array of swing dance styles from the 1920s, 30s and 40s including Lindy hop, Blues, Balboa, Collegiate Shag, Charlestons, Burlesque and  jazz-style strolls.

We have regular classes every Tuesday night at Hohepa Hall (23 Barrington St), followed by social dancing at Cargo Bar at 359 Lincoln Rd from 8:30 pm. See you there!
