Beginners Swing Jive Courses

Learning to Swing Jive couldn't be more enjoyable.  Whether you have dance experience or have never danced a step in your life, our instructors will guide you from the very basics of footwork, frame and posture through to being able to dance to your favourite vintage tunes such as Glenn Miller, Bill Haley, Elvis and many more

Our 10 week Beginners Swing Jive Courses are designed for the complete novice as well as those who have danced other dance styles such as modern jive or rock and roll jive.

There are two beginners courses. Beginners A and Beginners B. They are run alternatively on our three terms.

The winter term starts in January, our Spring term in April, and our Autumn term commences in September.

The two beginners courses share some of the core beginner jive moves, however each course also includes some new moves. We recommend students complete both courses, and there's something different in both to widen your repertoire. Completing both Beginners A and Beginners B courses will ensure you have a good understanding of the dance style, and will prepare you for our Beginners Plus Courses.

We actively encourage you to attend the many social dances organised by Jive 'n' Boogie as well as other promoters as early in your dance journey as possible. We have an extensive selection of event flyers at all of our classes. Please ask any of our instructors or crew members for more details. Attending social dances is the best way to learn. We'll teach you the moves on the courses, however many students have remarked how much quicker the learn to dance by attending social dances whenever possible.

COVID-19 Safe

Our venues have provided us with Covid-19 guidelines to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable experience at our courses. The following changes will be made for your safety.

Hand sanitizers will be made available at the entrance to the venue and must also be used just prior to the class commencing.

A class register of those attending will be completed at every class so we have full contact details for those attending each class.

We will not be rotating during our lessons for the forseeable future, and single students will remain with the same partner throughout the course.

Our instructors will maintain a safe distance from students. Unfortunately this means we can't actively envolve ourselves with each students learning experience, however we'll do our very best to ensure you get the best instructing possible under these difficult circumstances.

Our class sizes are reduced to ensure 2m spacing between couples.
