New Dancers

Whether you’ve never danced before, or you’ve recently given it a go, check out how you can take part in the Dunedin Midwinter Swing Festival too!

Never danced before?

If you’ve always wanted to give dancing a go, now’s your chance! At all three evening events we run a free taster swing dance class and we’d love for you to join us!

Pick what suits you:

  • Grab an evening events pass for three nights of fun! You’ll get the benefit of three taster dance classes, and be inspired by the Performance Ball.
  • Grab individual events passes for any evening event (or daytime taster class) that takes your fancy.
Been dancing a month or two?

If you have a month or so of Lindy Hop and/or Blues Dance under your belt, you can jump right into the full festival!

Our workshop schedule will let you know which classes are most suitable to beginners. We welcome as many newer dancers as possible to join us for this great opportunity to learn from the best and dance with the rest.

If you’re still not sure, or you have any questions, let us know at
