Jumptown Swing have been teaching swing dancing in Canberra for almost ten years.
Jumptown runs regular classes, workshops and events, and has a performance troupe available for functions and demonstrations. No experience or partner required. We have Beginner Classes Northside and Southside. Swing dancing is a great way to keep fit, socialise or get ready for a wedding. Join in the fun, meet new people learning the Lindy Hop, the original partner dance from the 1920′s, 30′s and 40′s. Jumptown Swing is a non-profit community organisation.
Jumptown Swing has an experienced performance troupe – The Jumptown Jammers - with a range of Lindy Hop, Charleston or Swing-era routines for charity or corporate events, birthdays, dinners, balls and weddings. For more info see the about page.
See Classes/Lindy Beginners for more information on beginner courses, venues, times and frequently asked questions.

Balboa Bootcamps 2013
The next Balboa Bootcamp is on the 1st of June, with other bootcamps later in the year on the 24th of August and the 16th of November
The aim of Bootcamp is to provide an intensive introduction to Balboa so that you can begin regular classes with confidence. You don’t need a partner or previous Balboa experience. You only need to attend one Bootcamp session to then come along to regular Monday classes, but you can attend them all if you wish.
The format for each Balboa Bootcamp session is as follows:
Part 2 3:00 – 4:30
Part 3 4:30 – 5:00
Social Dancing 5:00 – 6:00 where everyone is welcome
