Classes in Lindy Hop & Authentic Jazz
Manchester Lindy provide three dance classes each Tuesday evening followed by social dancing until 10.45pm (ish).

Entry is £5, whether you do one class, two classes, or simply social dance!
Our Tuesday Swing Social with classes currently takes place at the wonderful
Freemasons’ Hall, Bridge Street (off Deansgate) M3 3BT
Manchester Lindy classes are taught by a variety of teachers so that each week you get a different experience, even when the material covered is the similar. The wonderful Taina K (swing dance champion!) guest teaches regularly.
Don’t worry if you have no dancing experience, Level 1 classes are especially FOR you, and each class is designed to give you small selection of moves to get you up and running on the social floor that very same night! Our Level 1 curriculum follows a progressive 12 week cycle, but you can start ANY WEEK. Most folk will need to do the Level 1 cycle at least twice through (total of 24 weeks) before progressing to Level 2.
