Wednesdays – Route 66 at The Turks Head, Parliament Street, Temple Bar

Beginners Swing class, followed by DJed social dancing. You can drop in any week - no need to book! The Beginners class runs from 8.00pm til 8.45pm. There is also a "Beyond the Basics" Swing class, starting at 7pm and finishing at 7.45pm. See Route 66 page for more details.

The beginners Swing class is ideal for people who have never tried swing dancing before. Each week we take you through the basic rhythms and show you some moves to get you dancing. In the Beyond the Basics class, we'll take you beyond the basic rhythms and moves that you have learnt previously, and broaden your Swing dancing repertoire. We recommend you do a couple of months of 8.00pm classes before moving up to join us. Like the Beginners class, this is a drop in class.
