Comfortable shoes (most swing dancers don’t wear heels), water bottle, snacks, 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

This is solo dancing, so we won’t be dancing with partners – but we’ll all be sharing the same fun learning experience, so you’ll meet some new people and learn some new moves.
