An inclusive community for swing dancers of all levels, with weekly classes, practice sessions, and socials.
Our society centres around a group of dances that developed alongside the swing style of jazz music in the 1920s to 1940s. Dances such as Lindy Hop and Charleston began in African American communities and were largely vernacular.
Today, our society is one of a multitude of international communities celebrating this improvised, expressive, and playful dance form. We offer weekly classes open to all levels, from complete beginners to more experienced dancers (no partner needed), to help build a vocabulary of moves that can be used in social improvisation.
Most importantly, we hold weekly socials and practice sessions that hold true to the vernacular spirit of swing: sharing lively, improptu dances with new and old friends, in a space where people can be their authentic selves.
We are here solely for students of the University of St Andrews. We exist to make the student experience as strong as it can be, to provide services for students, and to represent student views to the University and beyond. We are a charity registered in Scotland and we are mostly volunteers, from members of the SRC and SSC to Ents Crew, all the society committee members to the Trustees of our Board.
