Swing Dance Classes
We run fun and friendly weekly classes for dancers of all levels as well as four week courses for absolute beginners. So whether you’ve been swing dancing for some time, or have never danced a step, we have a class for you. No need to bring a partner - many of our students come along on their own: it’s a great way to meet new friends and keep fit!
Tuesdays at the Reading Canoe Club, the Warren, Caversham, RG4 7TH (map): a beautiful venue overlooking the River Thames with plenty of parking and within easy walking distance of Reading Station.
Thursdays at the Wesley Church Hall, Queens Road, Reading, RG1 4BW (map): a great central Reading location with plenty of on-site parking, also within easy walking distance of Reading Station.
