Our next Fundamentals Course starts 30th August!

Swing dancing is becoming more and more popular and it is showing no signs of slowing down.  It is a fantastic way to get fit, learn a new skill and meet a fabulous bunch of people.  Why not give it a go?

Learn the basics of Lindy Hop in just one 4-week course!

This course will give you a solid foundation in fundamental lindy hop moves and techniques, ideal for people who’ve never danced before.

Underneath the Stars Festival – Cannon Hall, Barnsley

Swing Dance Leeds is teaching taster classes this weekend at Underneath the Stars Festival!

Underneath the Stars is a fantastic family-friendly festival and we are really excited to be returning!  On Sunday 23rd July, we’ll be teaching a swing dance workshop, which will be followed by a dance with music provided by the David Broad Trio!

As well as our classes and the amazing band line-up, there are lots of other activities to get involved in, including street theatre and storytelling, circus skills, arts and crafts workshops as well as an open farm!  We’d definitely recommend this as a fantastic day out and it is just £55 for a day ticket (£20 for children aged 7-15 and free for under 7’s)!

We’ll also be teaching solo Charleston and Shim Sham workshops on the Friday and Saturday of the Festival.

Come along and have a dance!
