Swingin' on Campus

Welcome to the Edinburgh University Swing Dance Society. We are a buzzing society with regular classes in Lindy Hop, Charleston, Shag and Balboa. Anyone can join us - no dance experience is required! Just come along to one of our tasters or to one of our first two Monday classes to try it out for free. See the classes page to read about our classes and how to join.

Looking for a great swing workshop? We host two swing weekends every year with visiting teachers, social dancing and performances. You can also read more about our society, meet our team and learn about the history of swing dance.
