What is Swing?

Swing Dance is a generic name for a collection of dance styles first created in the 1920's and adapted over the years to align with dance music styles such as Jazz, Blues, Rock & Roll and Pop. Much of its appeal comes from its simplicity and informality making it an easy dance to get into whilst providing plenty for the expert.

The great thing about Swing is its ability to embrace IMPROVISATION. Just like the Jazz/Blues music which is its foundation, although based around some standard steps and moves, dancers put these together in ways that suit them and the music being played. The result is a joyous dance - that looks pretty stylish too!

Our Teachers

Meet the people teaching Swing Dance in the Isle of Man

The heart of any dance group is its teachers. It's not enough to be a great dancer to teach, you have to like people and have endless patience, empathy and enthusiasm.  Our aim is to provide a combination of local and international teachers who can give our dancers confidence and enjoyment.
