About Roehampton Swing Dance Society

Are you looking to learn how to tear up the dancefloor? We can help! whether your a complete beginner or a pro. We offer weekly classes, socials and more! Follow our social media pages for updates!

Important News!

ROOM CHANGE: On the 25th November we WILL NOT be in Monte Hall due to an event being held by the University. Instead we will be in Chapman Hall located on Southlands College! 

Please note that the times of our classes have not changed due to the room change! 

 

How it Works

  • No need for a Dance Partner – Just come along!

  • We usually rotate partners throughout the class as we have seen that this is the best way to learn to dance in a social setting. It is also a really great way of meeting new people and making friends.

  • We pride ourselves on the welcoming environment of our classes.

 
 

What we teach

  • Most of our classes teach Lindy Hop and Charleston, but we do also cover a few other Swing dance styles, for example Solo Jazz.

  • To  find out what we are teaching each week, check out our Class Plans on our Instagram stories every Thursday!
