For absolute beginners taking their first steps in to the world of swing dance.

Level 1 : Absolute Beginners
7pm - 8pm
Bookings include practice session 8pm - 8:30pm
Roath Cons Club, 7-11 Cyril Crescent, Cardiff, CF24 1DQ
£30 per 4-week course
These courses are an introductory level, aimed at those with no prior dance experience or who wish to start at the very beginning. Learn to take your first steps with confidence, as you'll be introduced to basic dance technique, core footwork, jazz rhythms and simple moves.
Each session includes a 1hr dance class, and a 30mins practice session to follow, where you will have the chance to solidify what you have learned in the lesson, and Anna will be on hand to give you some one to one help

No need to bring a partner as we rotate during all classes to give everyone a chance and to help with learning true lead/follow technique. Ideally wear light layers as you can expect to get warm, and flat smooth-soled shoes are best.

Courses run for 4 weeks and start on the first week of every month. By the end of one or two courses at this level, you'll have some simple shapes to play with and an awareness of key footwork patterns such as the triple step and partnered connection. Content will vary in each course, so you can stay at this level without too much repetition until you feel ready to progress to Level 2 : Beginners Lindy Hop where we will introduce you to more classic moves and technique.
