Private Classes

As well as our regular classes and courses, you can hire us for private classes.  So far this year, Swing Dance Leeds has provided over 90 private classes!

Private classes can be for individuals, couples or even small groups.  There is also no restriction on your level of experience as we will tailor the class to your specific needs.  Some of the reasons to take a private class can include:

  • You’re a complete beginner and would like to build your confidence before taking a group class;
  • You’re an experienced dancer wanting to improve a specific element of your dancing;
  • You want to prepare for an event which may include level auditions and/or competitions;
  • First dances for weddings; or
  • Any other reason!

We can offer private classes in Lindy Hop, Balboa, Charleston and Solo Jazz.  Our prices are reasonable and you can even take the class in the comfort of your own home should you wish.  Alternatively, classes can be taken at our own studio at no extra cost!

Contact swingdanceleeds@gmail.com to enquire about our private classes or fill in our hire form.
