7:00 – 8:00pm Fundamentals with Chloe & Brady
This is our beginner-level course with a focus on social dancing within lindy hop, playing with rhythm and the classic steps. Lindy hop at its roots, keeping it simple and swinging. No prior knowledge required.

7:00 – 8:00pm Solo Jazz with Chris
This all levels course is all about ‘strolls’. Strolls are famous jazz choreographies known by lindy hoppers the world over, and danced as impromptu performances at most swing dance events. We’ll learn two classic jazz strolls – the Big Apple and the Shim Sham (full version!) We’ll look at individual styling and how you can express yourself and dance a stroll your way!


8:00 – 9:00pm Lindy Hop Roots with Anna & Chris
This course is for intermediate dancers. We’ll build on your solid fundamentals to develop your rhythmic and musical expression, lead/follow connection, and Lindy Hop and jazz vocabulary. The course content draws on the history of the original African American Lindy Hop dancers.

8:00 – 9:00pm Savoy with Chloe & Brady
How do we express ourselves individually within our dance partnership? Explore the world of swing jazz and different rhythmical ways we can respond and react to both the music and our partner. A 5 week course exploring musicality for advanced dancers.


9:00pm – 11:30pm Social Dancing every Wednesday
Enjoy hours of social dancing every week at the Fitzroy Wednesday Jam! DJs are selected to play the best swing music for dancing across a large range of tempos, and the parties feature musicians, tap dancers and other performers on a regular basis.
