Swing your way into 2017!
Swing Dancing classes are back for 2017, so come join in the fun! Visit the Classes page for all the details. Throughout the year, we also offer weekly classes in Slow Balboa, Tap, SwingTrain and Blues.
Launched in 2015, Savoy Dance specialises in teaching Lindy Hop (a popular style of Swing dancing) and Charleston, the most commonly danced styles in the Savoy Ballroom back in the 1930’s, as well as other popular styles including Balboa, Blues, Tap and Waltz. The Savoy Ballroom had an enormous influence on the dance and the music during it’s heyday, and it is an absolute honour to be able to share a part of it with Canberra.
The Savoy Ballroom was place of great joy, passion and inclusivity, with white AND black people being welcome through it’s doors, unlike other ballrooms running at the same time. Savoy Dance echoes the values of the great Savoy Ballroom inviting all dancers and friends – new and old – to jump on the floor and enjoy the dance.
Beginner classes are drop in—no partner or previous experience required, so you can come and try swing dancing anytime!
Savoy Dance is committed to providing a fun and safe environment for you to learn, dance and meet new people, and ask our teachers and dancers to adhere to our Code of Conduct.
Check your social calendar, grab a friend, and come enjoy your very own a taste of the Savoy!
