SwingMania is Launceston's school for swing dancing. Come along Wednesday evenings at the Worker's Club for a fun and friendly learning environment.
No need to book, no experience or partner required, just come along, look forward to seeing you there!
The music of the 1920's-50's inspired swing dancing, getting jitterbugs on the floor for almost 100 years.
Our classes cover Lindy Hop, 6 beat, Charleston and other dances from the era. No partner or experience required - and within minutes you'll have your toes tapping!
Classes are held Wednesday evenings at The Worker's Club - 66 Elizabeth St, Launceston (except for our bi-monthly free beginners’ class and social night at Gunner’s Arms. See “Upcoming Events” below for the next date).
Note: Class on Wednesday the 15th of January will be held at Gunners Arms Tavern.
6.30pm – Intermediate – Level Two
Developing ideas, moves and technique on from level one material, this is a place to stretch your dance mind and body and really strut your stuff. (Feel free to come and watch if you're a newbie, you'll pick things up too)
7.30pm – Beginners – Level One
Designed to get you moving and on the dance floor, we'll cover some achievable moves and footwork that will have you looking and feeling like a real jitterbug out there!
Classes rotate between 6 beat, Lindy Hop (8 beat) and Charleston.
No experience or partner required, no need to register, just turn up wearing comfortable shoes and clothes you can move in!
8.30pm Swing Social - with snacks!
Launceston's awesome swing DJs will get the floor pulsing, grab a drink and lots of dances! Great space to practice moves and process class material too, the best learning is out on the social floor.
