Social Dancing & Events

Social Dancing

Savoy Dance proudly hosts regular socials in the city!

Making it easy to catch up with friends for an early dinner out, join us for a social dance monthly on a Friday Night. Then, after the social, let the city be your oyster, and enjoy a post dance drink, snack or scrumptious nightcap.

We’re proud to host and support live music on the first Friday social of each month, which is the perfect opportunity to introduce new friends to your favourite habit. Join us from 7.30pm onwards as we get your weekend off to a swinging great start!

First Friday of each month, except for August!

Savoy Dance Open Day – Sat 22 July 2017


Come and be a part of our Open Day where we will teach you the foundations of swing dancing in one intensive morning! Savoy Dance is Canberra’s premium and newest swing dancing school and what better way to see what we have to offer, than to try all the different dance styles available to you, and have fun meeting new people while you’re at it!

Our instructors have over 10 years teaching experience each and are excited to invite you morning of 30 minute taster classes and general dancing fun.

Is this workshop for me?

This workshop is ideal for those who want to start dancing and don’t know where to begin. It is also a great taster session for those who may have taken some classes already, or seasoned lead and follow dancers wanting to learn the opposite role in the dance or a new style.

No experience is required – everyone is welcome: beginner and experienced dancers, current students and those who learn elsewhere, all ages and background – if you’re keen to dance, we want to see you!

What to bring

Comfortable shoes (most swing dancers don’t wear heels), water bottle, lunch, mints, deodorant, spare t-shirt, small towel, band aids – swing dancing is exercise, and you may well break a sweat, so be prepared.

No partner required. Swing dancing is a lead & follow partnered dance, so you will need to register as a Lead or a Follow.

And if you like what you try, there will be discounts for our 6 card passes to do more swing dancing classes during the week!

What will I learn?

On 22 July, you can learn the basics of the following dance styles:

9.30-10.10am SwingTrain

10.15-10.45am Balboa

10.50-11.20am Slow Balboa

11.25-11.55am Charleston

12.00-12.30pm Lindy Hop

How do I book?

The workshop is $45 for the 3 hours of classes. Simply register through Try Booking and enjoy your dancing adventure!

Please email with any queries, and please feel free to check out our teacher profiles.
