UPCOMING DATES FOR CLASSES:

Next set of classes – 5 week lindy hop set from 29th August
We will be starting our life at our new venue of Woolston Club with a set of lindy hop classes to put the new venue through it’s paces and give it a proper trial. See you there from the 29th of August – email swingtownrebels@gmail.com to register!


UPCOMING THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT:

CHANGE TO NIGHT AND VENUE FOR CLASSES AND SOCIAL DANCING!
As of the 29th of August all our classes and social dancing will be happening on a WEDNESDAY night at the Woolston Club (43 Hargood St).

Classes will run from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm like normal, but we will then crank up the music and have our DJ’d social right there at the Club, from 8:30-10:30 pm, with no need to change venues you can dance more! And there’s a bar in the next room so you can get your refreshments and/or some nibbles, whilst enjoying your social dancing without lots of random onlookers (a common request from our newer dancers!).

CHANGE TO CLASSES FORMAT
Check out the CLASSES page for what styles and levels we teach – we’ve just added in an extra level 2 level, and changed the times for level 3, so it’s important to take a look! Register by emailing swingtownrebels@gmail.com.

Amazebal Christchurch
AMAZEBAL is happening soon! Christchurch’s local weekend of balboa workshops and socials has gotten big – there’s out of town teachers and dancers coming in to play with us, so come join the fun! Details here.

 

ONGOING THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT:

 

 

Regular social dancing venue: WOOLSTON CLUB!
Join us every Wednesday night from 8:30-10:30 pm at 43 Hargood St for great music, fun dancing, good company and some yummy drinks and food from the bar!

Classes format
Swingtown Rebels Wednesday classes run 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. Check out styles and levels info here, and s
ee above for upcoming dates and 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!
