Classes and Workshops

What are the possibilities at Key Town Swing?

At Key Town Swing we offer weekly classes and workshops in a variety of different Vintage Swing dance styles. Our main focus has always been Lindy Hop, with Charleston and Authentic Jazz (or Solo Jazz) added in weekly classes. Next to Lindy Hop, we also teach weekly classes of Collegiate Shag and Slow Drag / Blues.

If you want to seriously work on your technique one-on-one, or want help in creating your wedding dance, you might want to consider taking private classes with us. It is also possible to book us to teach a company workshop or group class, for instance for your bachelor(ette) party!

Visit our Contact page to ask us for more information.

Registrations for classes starting in January are open!

This block we are offering three levels of Lindy Hop*, three levels of Collegiate Shag and two levels of Blues! Each course is 10 weeks long, and each class is one hour long. Costs are €125 per course, with a 25% discount on each added course. Signing up with a partner gives you both an additional 5% discount!

To find out more about each level, please check out our Class Descriptions page.

*) Lindy Hop level 2 is split into two groups, A and B. This gives us a bit more space in class, but also allows you to select a preference for which night you want to join. If you don't have a preference, please sign up for BOTH classes.
