Social dancing is where swing began! It means getting out on the floor and dancing with everyone in sight, from beginner to pro, and having a blast!
It’s a great opportunity to improve your dancing – but most of all it’s a great new way to make friends!
Canberra Swing Katz run a number of regular social events, so be sure to check them out!
Stick around after classes once a month (in winter) and once a fortnight (in summer) for the Swing Katz Speakeasy. 1-2 hours of Dj’d and live swing music for you to practice those new moves, break out your most impressive style and hang out with your new best friends! Don’t forget to keep your eye on our Facebook page for Live Band Nights.
Katz out on the town! Dancing isn’t just for classes! There are heaps of amazing hard swinging Canberra bands and touring groups out there, and we’re raring to go out and support live music in the capital!
