Why learn to Swing Dance at the Village Hall

Dancing is a great way to get exercise and improve your physical fitness. Dancing involves concentration and stamina, meaning when you dance, you switch off from the stresses of everyday life lowering stress and anxiety. Dancing exercises the heart, lungs, muscles, joints, and ligaments, and in doing so it improves your balance, muscle strength, and coordination.
We play joyful swing music during the class, and the wooden sprung floor is perfect for learning to swing dance! You’ll join the worldwide community of dancers who swing out all over the globe.

How do I book

Your first class on is free so just turn up at 7.20pm to be dance ready for the start of class at 7.30pm.

Subsequent classes are £54 for the structured course of 6 classes suitable for absolute beginners and those who’ve previously tried Lindy Hop classes but don’t yet have the confidence to social dance. They’re ideal if you already dance Lindy Hop but would like to learn the other role.

Annie and Keith, your teachers, are passionate about Swing dancing and are keen to share it with you, ensuring you learn, and have fun! They’ve been teaching Swing for 7 years and dancing for much longer…

You can register with or without a partner. Roles are not gender specific, anyone can lead or follow, but you’ll need to stick with your chosen role for the course.

About Swing Dance

Lindy Hop is a Black American dance that evolved in the New York district of Harlem from the late 1920s alongside the development of jazz music, giving rise to the Swing era of the 1930s. Lindy Hop is danced today thanks to some of the original Lindy Hoppers such as Norma Miller and Frankie Manning who shared their love of Lindy Hop in the 1990s while they were still alive.

Swing dance is a general term for all sorts of 1930s dance including Lindy Hop, Collegiate Shag, Balboa, and Charleston. You’ll no doubt dance at least another one of these during your Swing Dance journey over the next few years!
