Vintage

The dancers of the night

For anyone interested in the vintage scene, dance history, or for anyone who likes to bop along to music from Hollywood’s Golden Age! Come along and have fun learning the cheeky Charleston from the 1920s, the elegant dancing of the 1930s, the swinging Lindy Hop from the 1940s, and the classic jive and rockabilly of the 1950s. These are all fun and energetic dance styles; you will get to know the fundamentals in each dance while developing a great sense of style and rhythm.  You will also learn some great solo routines (famous ‘strolls’) to complement your partner dancing; such as the Rockabilly Stroll, Shim Sham, Tranky Doo, Sing Lim Charleston, Mama’s Stew, New York Stroll and the Jitterbug Stroll – these are popular solo dances at vintage events all over the world!

All classes are fun, friendly and pay-as-you-go.  Complete beginners, couples and solo dancers are always very welcome – all you really need are shoes with a smooth sole to help you turn without sticking to the floor and a smile – looking forward to seeing you at a class or Tea Dance soon!
