What we're about

We are a fun group of social dancers, who love to swing dance to the big band jazz of the Swing Era (1920s - 1950s).

There are classes every week for dancers of all levels of experience.

Every March, we welcome lindy hoppers from around the world to Cape Town for Mother City Hop (http://mothercityhop.com) - the continent’s biggest swing dancing festival. It's a really inspiring event and we’d love to see you there.

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!

For some examples of what social (improvised) lindy hop looks like, see https://youtu.be/XT1j8 (https://youtu.be/XT1j8KOMjNE?list=PLkDvAGqaLEqC-av0wzaold4gDaXy9Eb7N)...­ and https://youtu.be/veAOU (https://youtu.be/veAOURiM-1U?list=PLkDvAGqaLEqC-av0wzaold4gDaXy9Eb7N)...­.
