Hop Step Swing! - Teen Swing Dancing Melbourne

  • 1929 Studios 281 Smith St Fitzroy, VIC, 3065 Australia (map)

Teen Swing Dancing is here!!
Hop Step Swing is the fun new opportunity for teens to learn to swing dance! Swing dancing is a highly spirited folkdance that came out of the jazz era of the 1920s-40s in New York City. Nearly 100 years later, Swing dance is alive and well amongst people across the globe and in Melbourne -- who wished they had learned when they were teenagers!

Dancing is a fun way to...develop physical coordination; meet new people; develop rhythm and musicality; learn about jazz history; exercise; practice creative expression, and build confidence. Round out your secondary education with learning how to partner dance! It's a skill that lasts a lifetime and gives access to another way to communicate with people in this big wide world.

Students will learn the basics of swing dancing in a fun routine with a performance opportunity at the end!  Class size will be limited to a small group of students to offer the best learning environment.

Location -- 1929's very own studio and slice of history -- the old Moran & Cato building on Smith Street.
