THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW:

Regular social dancing venue: WINNIE BAGOES CITY!
Join us every Tuesday night from 8:30-10:30 pm at 153 Madras Street for great music, fun dancing, good company and yummy pizza!

Classes format
This year Swingtown Rebels classes are running on a format of alternating a five week set of lindy hop classes (at levels 1 – 3), with a three week set of classes in other swing styles.

The swing era had a large range of different dance styles, including lindy hop, blues, balboa, solo Charleston, shag, and many more. These styles are both excellent fun in their own rights, or to incorporate into your lindy hop. A basic understanding of other styles will make you a better, more versatile dancer, and they’re just fun, so we’re hoping everyone gets a taste for them!  See below for dates and styles.

New 5 week set of lindy hop
