With the motto "All the Cats Join In", the Swing Katz are all about fun, friends and great Swing Dancing in Canberra! With a touch of vintage flavour, they love to bring the dances, music and style of the 1920's-50's to today. Known for their high energy, high flying performances and fun classes, Canberra Swing Katz specialise in Charleston, Lindy Hop and related Swing Dances.
Swing dancing originated as a social dance, and that’s how they like to keep it! The funnest way to get active and meet new people, classes are designed to get you feeling confident asap! Learn all the basic steps and fundamental leading/ following techniques you need to look and feel great on the dance floor. You don’t even need to bring a partner, as they rotate in class, giving you the chance to meet more people!
Suitable for all levels of dance ability and fitness, beginner’s courses run as blocks introducing you to Charleston and Lindy Hop (the specific style of swing popular today do). With an integrated approach, you'll be able to use both steps as building blocks for your dancing and improvising in no time! Once you complete one Beginner's course, you're ready to join the Intermediate.
You don’t even need to bring a partner or pre-register, just turn up on the night!
