Fine print

It’s all in the name – this is Boot Camp for Beginners. It’s an intensive one day course teaching the three different dance rhythms that make up our main swing dance, Lindy Hop. You will sweat, you will be exhausted and exhilarated, mind and body. If you’d like to take it a little easier, try booking for one or two sessions only, then book for the remainder at a later date. Please note that no refunds, credits or IOUs will be issued if, on the day, you don’t attend all sessions for which you have registered.


What to bring

Comfortable shoes (most swing dancers don’t wear heels), water bottle, lunch, mints, deodorant, spare t-shirt, small towel, band aids – swing dancing is exercise, and you may well break a sweat, so be prepared.

No partner required. Swing dancing is a lead & follow partnered dance, so you will need to register as a Lead or a Follow. If you’re registering for you and a friend, make sure you register Leads and Follows separately – please don’t book 2 Follow tickets for a Follow and a Lead. Or you can buy a Pair Pass in one single transaction (all three lessons for a Lead and a Follow.) However, you don’t have to register with a partner. We rotate partners throughout the sessions – a great way to meet new people, all sharing the same fun learning experience.
