About Our Classes

What do we teach?

Our regular Wednesday night classes are usually 6 week sets of lindy hop (the style most people think of when they think of swing dancing), at levels to suit everyone!

We occasionally incorporate classes in a range of other swing-era dance styles, including blues, balboa, solo Charleston, Collegiate 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, plus they are just fun, so we like to include them when we can.

How much does it cost?

Full 6-week set (any level): $70 ($50 students/Goldcard)
Drop in class – $15 ($10 students/Goldcard)
Attendance at the level below the one you are registered for – FREE! (Numbers/ratios in class permitting).

How do I register and pay?

You can register by emailing swingtownrebels@gmail.com.

You can pay by:
EFTPOS or cash at your first class
Bank transfer to Swingtown Rebels account 01-0797-0852621-00 (don’t forget your name as a reference!)

Who are the teachers?

Swingtown Rebels is lucky to have a diverse and experienced teaching team – check out their details here.

Do I need a partner?

You do not need to bring a partner to any of our classes, as we rotate partners during class! This helps people learn much faster, and how to dance with a range of different people, as we have a big focus on social dancing – that’s where the real fun comes in!

Where do I go?

Check out the main classes page for the schedule for the next set to see what level is when and where. Then have a look at our venues info page to figure out how to get there!

What is a taster class?

Taster classes run on our regular band nights in the week between sets, and are FREE! for new dancers. No obligations, come and have a go! If you have fun, come back the next week and sign up for a new set. The date for the next taster class will be listed on the main classes page, or email us at swingtownrebels@gmail.com for info.

What should I wear?

Swing dancing is an active dance. We advise wearing comfortable clothes you can move around in, and flat/very comfortable shoes.
