Taster classes

In the run-up to the new block of classes, we're hosting a number of taster classes for you to try out the various styles of dances we offer at Key Town Swing.

All these classes take place at the Key Town Swing Studio, Boshuizerskade 119

Our taster classes are €5 (cash or Tikkie) and do not require registration, so you can just drop in! As we will be rotating partners throughout the class, bringing a partner is not necessary. Though it does help the balance of the class if you bring someone!
