NEW SERIES - Beginner's Block in a Day!

Beginner's Block in a Day - Last Saturday of every month in 1929's Studio - Collingwood

Beginner's Block in a Day - Last Saturday of every month in 1929's Studio - Collingwood

We have a new special treat for our newbie friends out there!  The Beginner's Block in a Day aims to support our Beginner Swing Block at Smith Street Swing in several ways:

  • The same rhythm of the SSS block will be taught on the last Saturday of every month, in 1929's very own STUDIO.
  • Did you take a block at Smith Street Swing but want to practice heaps with the teachers present in a small class to really "get it"?  Here's your chance!
  • Are you a total Newbie and want to give dancing a go, but find group classes overwhelming or intimidating?  This class will move quickly, but it's small, so you will get special attention from the teachers!
  • Love the idea of meeting new people, but find bigger group classes harder to get a word in?  The size of these classes mean that you can rotate to the same people a few times in class...make connections!
  • Are you learning in private lessons but now feel ready to dance with some new people in a small setting...this is it!
  • Have background dance experience that makes beginner classes seem to move too slow? Small class - lots of material - one on one attention from your teachers makes this the place to go!
  • Unavailable Tuesday nights? - Think LAST SATURDAYS!

Have fun and Swing (TF) Out!
