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.
COVID UPDATE: As of 21 September we are back in COVID alert level 1 so will be resuming social dancing and partner dancing classes – see below for details.
When not impacted by COVID19, we have regular classes every Wednesday night at St Michael’s School Hall (249 Durham St South) and Elim Church Dance Studio (285 Cashel St), followed by social dancing at the Pegasus Arms, upstairs at 14 Oxford Terrace, from 8:30 pm.
