Jumptown Swing is a community-based swing dancing school and group in Canberra.

We specialise in teaching lindy hop, balboa and authentic jazz style dancing to the swinging’ jazz music of the 1920s, 30s and 40s.

Our weekly classes are in Turner and Griffith and there’s no need to bring a partner or register in advance. 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 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 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!
