SwingMania is Launceston's school for swing dancing. Come along Wednesday evenings at the Worker's Club for a fun and friendly learning environment.
No need to book, no experience or partner required, just come along, look forward to seeing you there!
The music of the 1920's-50's inspired swing dancing, getting jitterbugs on the floor for almost 100 years.
Our classes cover Lindy Hop, 6 beat, Charleston and other dances from the era. No partner or experience required - and within minutes you'll have your toes tapping!
UPDATE: Class this Wednesday will be held at the Launceston North Uniting Church Hall
