Enjoy Swing Dancing for Fun, Fitness and Friendly Events.

Learn to dance with Debra and John, Reading's most experienced, accomplished and only professional Swing Dance couple, having been the first in Reading to promote the revival of The Lindy Hop thirty years ago.

No previous experience needed and no exams - just come ready to have a good time. Bring a partner or come alone - it's up to you.

Be one of the lucky people with no dance experience who are discovering the irresistible allure of swinging music. If you are ready to be seduced by Swing then don't be a square; if you long to Lindy Hop then join the party; and if you just yearn to Jitterbug and Jive then jump to it and join in.

Berkshire Swing Dance are Reading's only professional swing dance teachers and event promoters, who have spent decades in love with swing dancing. We offer tuition that reflects our passion for dance plus our understanding of movement and connection for partnering. Debra and John openly share their extensive insights gained from dancing, teaching, performing and competing, encouraging and coaching for dancers of all levels.
