Group Classes & Workshops

We offer a variety of classes in Lindy Hop, Charleston and Solo Jazz, for everyone: absolute beginners and experienced swing dancers alike, in Cape Town and Stellenbosch.

Swing is, at its heart, a social dance, and our aim is to get you movin’ and groovin’ on the dance floor from your very first class. Lindy hop, one of the original swing dances, involves improvisation: mixing rhythms and patterns with vernacular jazz movements and charleston. Our classes are designed to help you get used to moving to swinging jazz music, and most of all, to feel the joy of this almost century-old dance.

The pandemic has kept us off the dance floor for more than a year, and it’s about time that we dust off those jazz pants and get moving a bit – safely, of course. We're sussing out the demand for classes in different areas of Cape Town, and figuring out what will work. In the meantime, please take a quick minute to fill out this survey to let us know where you're based and what you're keen for.
