What we're about
We are a fun group of social dancers, who love to swing dance to the big band jazz of times gone by (1920s - 1940s, and occasionally mixing in some rock 'n roll and rockabilly!).
There are classes on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday nights for beginner and intermediate dancers.
Every March, we welcome lindy hoppers from around the world to Cape Town for Mother City Hop (http://mothercityhop.com) - SA's very first swing dancing festival. It's an incredible event and we can't wait for the next edition (22-25 March 2018).
We welcome newcomers of all levels at all our events. We look forward to meeting you and swinging out with you!
See http://www.capetownswing.co.za for more details! And follow our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/capetownswing/) to get the latest news of swingy socials, like going to dance to some great local swing bands or at open streets events.
We also have a WhatsApp group where we post class updates and impromptu swing socials. If you would like to join the group, contact us!
