Savoy Dance proudly hosts regular socials in the city! Social dancing is where the leather hits the floor, so to speak.
The idea of social dancing is that there is a place, with a band playing, and people come to listen to the band and dance. They might come as individuals, or with a partner. It truly is an authentic experience.
Let’s start with the formalities – Savoy Dance has a Code of Conduct, posted on this website, that applies to all our events, including social dances. We don’t tolerate any harassment of any person in any way for any reason, and will remove offenders without notice.
Swing social dances have a fairly relaxed etiquette, like a house party of friends. We don’t have dance cards to be filled in at the start of the evening. We teach all the etiquette for swing dance socials at our classes, or ask any of the teachers or event officials if you have questions.
Making it easy to catch up with friends for an early dinner out, join us for a social dance monthly on a Friday Night. We’re proud to host and support live music on the first Friday night of each month, which is the perfect opportunity to introduce new friends to your favourite habit. Join us from 7.00pm onwards as we get your weekend off to a swinging great start!
