Learn to swing dance and meet new people in a fun and friendly environment with Canberra’s most experienced swing dance teachers.
Jumptown Swing is a community-based, not-for-profit swing dancing school in Canberra that has been teaching and hosting Australia’s best workshops and dance-exchanges for over 15 years.
We teach beginner classes through to advance in lindy hop, balboa and other authentic swing-era dances, all done to the swingin’ jazz music of the 1920s, 30s and 40s.
Our weekly classes are in Turner. Just turn up on the night (you can join in at week 1 or 2 of each beginner course), wear flat shoes and prepare to have fun!
Our classes are $15 or you can purchase a multi-pass for better value. There is no extra cost for additional classes on the same night. See the class page for more information.
Jumptown Swing can also provide entertainment and specialty classes for your event. Our experienced performance troupe, the Jumptown Jammers, specialise in recreating authentic jazz dances from the 1920s to 1940s, transporting you back in time to the swingin’ dance halls of Harlem. See their page to find out how we can help you!
