Swing Dance Styles

Here is some help for you in selecting a class or combination of classes..

Here is a short guide to our regular class structure to help you to chose the elements of swing dancing that you want to focus on.

  • JIVE classes focus on 6-count figures, mostly single-time swing for more up-tempo tracks.  (We use a lot of Rock 'n' Roll and Rhythm & Blues on Mondays.)

  • JITTTERBUG classes are geared around double-time footwork and incorporate Charleston variations and sometimes more.

  • LINDY HOP sessions are where we mainly teach triple-time footwork, generally to medium tempo jazz, and take plenty of time to explore the core 8-count variations such as swing-outs.

Swing dancers often mix and mingle all of these elements to suit the moment.  We make the journey easier for you by having a clear focus for each teaching track.

We dance other styles although we mainly teach those through private tuition and workshops.
