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!
