Swing Dance Classes


Wednesday 6.30pm, Petersham Bowls Club, 77 Brighton St, Petersham

Lindy hop is the most popular partner swing dance on dance floors today, and it's lots of fun! We start with simple, accessible moves in our beginner classes, and later move on to faster music, more challenging steps, and the excitement of hard core lindy hop! You don't need a partner, as we rotate partners in class, giving you a chance to meet and dance with lots of people.

PROGRESSIVE COURSES

BEGINNERS:
We teach 6 week beginner courses on:

  • Wednesdays (8 Jan, 1 Mar, 12 Apr, 24 May, 5 Jul, 16 Aug, 27 Sep, 8 Nov 2017);

Start in week 1 (or 2 at the latest).
You don't need to commit to 6 weeks - drop in for weeks 1 and/or 2 and see how you like it!

We teach 3 types of beginner blocks (swing outs and charleston, swing outs and jazz, swing outs and different rhythms), and you'll need to take each before you can move on to intermediate classes.

Rhythm Tap Dance Classes


Tuesday 6.30pm, Ashfield Presbyterian Church (back hall), cnr Knox and Liverpool Rds, Ashfield.

One of the greats in the jazz dance family, tap bridges the divide between musician and dancer. In our beginner classes, we take our simple, rhythm-first approach to tap dance. This class is usually filled with lindy hoppers and jazz dancers, many of whom are also teachers, looking to improve their dance. And make a lot of noise.

Performance Classes

Lindy hop and jazz dance were also performance dances, and in this class we get a taste of the performance process from audition to show time.

These classes are run occasionally.

This class:

  • Works at an intermediate or higher level;
  • Takes you through the whole performance process from auditions, through learning a routine and developing stage craft, to a final performance;
  • Focuses on historic lindy hop performance and tradition;
  • Is a class, not a performance troupe, so the emphasis is on learning and fun;
  • Helps you develop the skills to join a performance group, or start your own;
  • Does all this in a relaxed, friendly environment, without the pressures of a professional performance team.
solo jazz and swing dance classes

Vintage Solo Jazz Dance Classes

Dancing alone is great for improving fitness, balance, and coordination. But more importantly - it's crazy fun!

Swing Dance Sydney began the first weekly historic solo jazz dance class in Australia in 2012, and now teach occasional solo jazz workshop weekends. We focus on dancing from the 1920s, 30s and 40s.
That means: old timey fun.

You'll learn historic steps and rhythms that no one else teaches in Sydney, you'll get to know the structures of jazz music, and you'll discover the fun of social solo dancing!

SOLO JAZZ WORKSHOPS

We teach solo jazz in occasional weekend workshops. Check out our workshop page for information about upcoming workshops.
