Swing Dance Workshop

May Swing Dance Workshop and Social Dance

Join us for a day of swing dance workshops on the 28th May with Paul and Sarah. They will be teaching a mix of fun moves to add the wow factor into your dancing along with some solid technique to give you more confidence on the social dance floor. The last class of the day will be all about the songs that we love and how we can all make our dancing look and feel better by matching our moves to the music.

Later that night we will all get the chance to practice our new moves at a social dance night The Galway Rowing club from 9.30pm. This dance is open to everyone, the more the merrier!

The swing dance workshops are suitable for a mix of dancing ability, you just need some experience with lindy hop. There is no need to sign up with a partner, just bring yourself and your enthusiasm!

February Swing Dance Workshop Day

Our workshop days are returning on Saturday February 22nd in The Galway Rowing Club, Woodquay with aerials and collegiate shag. These days are focused on helping you add a little something extra to your dancing repertoire. This month we have a very exciting line-up of high flying aerials and a vintage shag dancing workshop with Sarah Crawford and Eamonn O’Sullivan.

Aerials 11am

In the morning we will run one of our ever popular Aerials workshop to put some air time in your dancing. These don’t require any dance experience and everyone is welcome, (partner required).

Collegiate Shag – The Basic Steps 1pm

Collegiate Shag is known as a fast dance of fun, fancy footwork. It’s a great dance to have in your repertoire for spicing up fast songs with extra-crazy moves. Even the most basic Shag steps are a lot of fun to do and watch, and many people find it easier to dance Shag to fast music than Lindy Hop.  This class will focus on teaching you the basics of shag dancing and a few fun moves that you can bring into your practice.


Aerials at 11am – €15pp / partner required

Shag Dance Workshop at 1pm – €10pp Or save money get both classes for €20pp
