Swing Dancing at Galway Swing

Why You Should Start Swing Dancing in 2015

What kind of 2015 do you want to have?

If you’re seeking a change, maybe some excitement, or if you’re looking to pick yourself up, come and give swing dancing a try. Our motto – ‘we don’t save lives, but we sure do change them’ holds especially true at this time of year.

The Christmas period is an often exciting time – office parties, social gatherings, spending time with family, but when it’s over, what do we have to entertain us? We go back to work or school and more than likely a cold and wet winter and there is nothing on the telly.  If you start swing dancing,you will open the door to a whole new world you had no idea was there all along.

For the swing dancers of Galway January is a very happy time indeed! For us, Christmas was a quiet period during which we didn’t get to dance as much as we’d like; The nights were cold, work was busy (especially for those in retail) and we searched desperately for live music to dance to but all the bands were booked for Christmas parties. Now it’s over, and instead of a case of the January blues we are all excited to hear some music and get out on the dancefloor.

And whilst it all revolves around dancing, that’s not really the whole story.   We now have things to look forward to; great music, special events, cool Youtube videos to watch (did you see the fun we had right here in Galway just a month ago?  We get to catch-up with our friends  – old friends that know the drill, know the hang-outs, and have forgotten what life was like before they even started dancing…….

……… and NEW friends – those we haven’t even met yet. They’re the ones that will sneak out sometime in January to start a new hobby, maybe come to a couple of dance classes and just quietly take it all in. They will politely converse with their fellow students, but within a few weeks they’ll be in the groove. They’ll know the drill, know the hang-outs, and they’ll look back on January 2015 as the start of something very special.

Swing dancing is not just a way to get fit while having fun it is often a journey too. It consists of new friends, new habits and mad new skills. And we love guiding people through it.

Come hang out with us. Make it a 2015 to remember.
