Upon moving to Canberra, I was keen to get involved in dance again and thanks for a friend, I stumbled upon Savoy Dance when she asked me to come along to a swing dance social. I had never swing danced before that evening, but the people were so friendly and understanding that I still managed to have a ball, and it inspired me to take up some of their dance classes and socials on offer.
Swing Dancing Poster
Every Wednesday night Cathy and Adam offer Swing Classes at the Griffin Centre. They offer three classes - beginners, intermediate and advanced, and people are invited to go to one or more classes!
A swing inspired exercise class, which blends dance and exercise. Perfect who anyone who loves to dance, and doesn't love the traditional workout!
Savoy Dance also offers Tap Classes, but these are run in a block of six classes instead of weekly classes. They are still a lot of fun and Jamie is an excellent teacher, teaching people of varying experience all in the same class.
Happy Feet Swing Social
On the first Friday of the month, Savoy Dance runs a social swing! This social is run for everybody and not just those dancing at Savoy, and it is a great chance to meet other people in the swing scene in Canberra.
If you like things a little slower, then Blues is the dance for you, and this social is a great place to try it out with an hour class running before the social kicks off at 9! Again anyone is welcome to come along and have some fun!
