What does it cost?

Swing classes are $15 at the door, or $11 for students and seniors. Or if you feel like taking two classes in a night, the second class is half price ($22 for two classes and $16 for students/seniors).

A 6 class card is available at the venue ($80 each or $55 for students/seniors) or by getting in touch. Passes offer you a great way to save on your Swing dance classes!

Simply present your card at any swing or slow balboa venue and get the class marked off. They are convenient, cheaper than paying as you go and give you an excuse to get up and dance as often as you can! Six class cards give you the following benefits:

  • Makes a great gift
  • Valid for any city Savoy Dance class (sorry, does not include special workshops, tap or SwingTrain classes)
  • Valid for 12 months and is transferable
  • Can be shared between two people.

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.
