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.

Note that for continuity and to help the whole group progress we encourage people to sign up for a full set when you can rather than just coming to random classes.
Current COVID update
Updated 14th April 2022
We’re starting back! While we are in the traffic light ORANGE setting we will be resuming social dancing and partner dancing classes. We will be taking some precautions to follow Government guidelines and minimise the risk of spreading disease at our events. Please see HERE for our current COVID-related rules and precautions.
Keen to get in on the fun? We run regular sets of weekly classes.
Weekly socials, one off workshops, big events – all the things!
Read here about swing dancing, Swingtown Rebels, and useful things like our community guidelines and COVID rules.
Swingtown Rebels has a performance troupe who love to add some flair to your events.
Wedding dances, private parties, corporate functions or just a chance to learn at your own pace – we have several teachers who are available for private lessons.
