When: Drop in class every Thursday
Time: 7:00 – 7:45 pm
The essentials class will cover the basic footwork and movements that new dancers need to start swing dancing. You will learn basic steps on your own and then with a partner. At the start of classes we randomly assign partners so you don’t need to bring one to get involved, we then rotate partners during the class to ensure everyone gets to dance.
When: Drop in class every Thursday.
Time: 8:00 – 9:00 pm
The main class will expand on the footwork and movements covered in the fundamentals class. In each lesson we will challenge new and experienced dancers alike by showing multiple variations of each movement and allowing each individual to choose the level suitable for them.
We charge £7 for both classes. You can pay on the door each night (cash only). We also offer a reduced price of £5 if you can only attend one class.
Our lessons run between 7:00 – 9:30 pm on Thursday evenings at Mapperley community centre, 589 Woodborough Rd, Nottingham NG3 5GG.
There is free parking on the road. Please DO NOT park in the Aldi car park as there is a 90 min maximum stay for paying customers.
Workshops and Events
Workshops are classes that run outside the normal class time. These often occur on weekends and feature guest teachers. There are workshops all over the UK for various levels and we also occasionally run workshops in Nottingham.
Workshops are great if you want to fit in a lot of training in a short amount of time. Keep up to date with upcoming workshops through our calendar.
Swing dance events typically run on weekends, from Friday evening to Sunday evening. A lot of events feature classes during the day and social dances in the evenings, commonly known as camps. Some events only offer social dancing and are known as exchanges. These events happen all over the world and the prices vary. Keep up to date with upcoming events in our calendar, or go to swingplanit to discover events happening all over the world.
