Is about having fun, moving naturally in a way that is comfortable to you and enjoying what you are doing.
We use a method developed by Gloria Pinares, a movement therapist, dancer and instructor in Barcelona, which uses all of these things to great effect.
Hello, I'm Jean (on the left) and Shirley is on the right. We have been teaching all styles of swing dance for more years than you have had hot dinners (yes, we do look young for our age!). We are training with Gloria Garcia Pinares in Barcelona and use her pioneering method in our classes and workshops.
Start Dancing With All Jazzed Up
We run fun and friendly classes for dancers of all levels so if you’ve never danced a step, or have been swing dancing for some time, we have a class for you. It’s a great way to meet new friends and keep fit - what's not to like! You don't need a partner to come to our classes, just shoes that will stay on your feet (no flip flops or fashion ballet pumps) and a sense of humour (always helps when you are dancing). Take a look at our testimonials at the bottom of this page - all real testimonials by real people, then choose one of the options below and say 'Hello' to a new hobby.
We are so lucky to have Jean and Shirley teaching in our area! They are fantastic teachers who’s patience and sense of fun seem to know no bounds. They work really hard to create a welcoming and creative environment to learn and enjoy Swing Dancing, coming up with different methods, choreography and techniques to get the best out of their students. The classes are relaxed and friendly and there’s something for everyone, and I also recommend the event weekends as something really special!
