Classes and Workshops (For dances check out our events tab at the top of the front page!)

Swing Out Swindon (1)

Our Lindy Hop classes are filled with smiles and laughter,  along with some great moves to get you on that dance floor.  Although you require a partner to dance with, don’t worry, if you don’t have one to bring there will be plenty there, as we rotate everyone around throughout the lesson.

Don’t forget your footwear! Make sure you have comfy and supportive shoes but not too grippy on the soles.
