Melbourne CBD

Update October 2021
Swing Patrol Melbourne CBD plans to re-open in February 2022. To allow for maximum accessibility, we of course need to wait for the 90% double vaccinated threshold (no DQs, no capacity limits, masks not required in most indoor settings) but we also need to understand what “living with the virus” looks like before we can confidently resume group partner dancing in our community again. Updates will be published on the website and social media announcing when we can resume classes, and the procedures we will have in place.

Welcome to Swing Patrol Melbourne CBD
* Weekly classes for beginners, beginner plus and intermediate level swing dancers.
* We will change partners through the class, as experience shows dancing with a variety of partners improves the learning experience. Of course, if you choose not to change partners, we completely understand, and will manage the class accordingly.

* All attendees will be required to check-in using the venue QR code. This is a Victorian Government requirement, regardless of whether you have pre-registered for the class. Please arrive at least 5 minutes prior to advertised class start time, to allow for smooth check-in process.
