Have you ever been intrigued by the glamour of old school dance cultures such as the iconic Charleston of the roaring 20s, or the classic lindy hop that dominated the swing scene of the 1930s and 40s? Perhaps you are attracted by the richness of the blues and want to learn the many ways it can be danced. With us you can try out all of these dance styles and join the UK swing-dance scene, no partner or previous experience is required! We offer weekly classes and socials as well as workshops that are attended by teachers and dancers from other Scottish swing dance groups and the wider European swing scene. Find us on Facebook at 'Aberdeen University Swing Dance Society' or Instagram @auswingsoc for events, classes and socials information!
