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.
