Private Lessons

For individuals, couples or groups.

Private lessons are available for individuals, couples or groups:

  • to learn the basics at your own pace;
  • to get comfortable dancing with your partner for your wedding;
  • to polish a routine;
  • or to warm up the dance floor at a work function...

Our private lessons are offered by Cape Town Swing's senior dance teachers who each have extensive swing dance teaching experience.
