Shakedown Swing is just around the corner, and to get everyone ready we are transforming our Friday night jams into a five week long course to get you ready for the weekend! 

The course will include workshops to get you ready for Jack and Jill, the fun steals competition and a practice Jack and Jill experience! 

Each class will start at 8pm at the YMCA on Hereford Street, followed by social dancing from 9pm to 930pm, then a drink to celebrate the end of the week! 

The best thing is the course is totally free if you are registered for Shakedown Swing, or $5.00 a class if you're not (you can register for Shakedown Swing here
