Class plan

Mersey Swing runs weekly Lindy Hop and Charleston classes in Liverpool city centre. We also run a weekly Solo Jazz class. If you are not sure which class is for you, please check out the page ‘Which Vintage Dance Class is for me?’

A Safer Dance Space

We also seek to provide a safe dance space. Mersey Swing is a professional member of the Foundation for Community Dance and follows the Professional Code of Conduct. We also recognise the STEPS Code of Conduct. Most of the Mersey Swing Committee are DBS checked and many of the team are trained in safeguarding. Safe spaces means more enjoyment for everyone.

 

Weekly Lindy Hop and Charleston Classes

We have recently changed the format of our classes as follows:

Essentials Class: If you are new to swing dance then this is the class for you.  It introduces a variety of basic footwork patterns for Lindy Hop and Charleston and some fun, easy moves. Once you have mastered the fundamentals, you will be able to move on to our other classes.

Moves and Technique Class: This is the class where you can learn the skills to help you improve your dancing and the cool moves you see on the social dance floor. We cover such topics as improving your footwork, connecting with your partner, turning… and many more. We’re always open to suggestions, so if there is any part of your dance that you struggle with let us know and we’ll try to address it in a future class.

Social Dancing: We have 40 minutes worth of social dancing after the Essentials class.

Where: The Black-E, 1 Great George St, Liverpool
Parking: On street parking is available on Nelson Street and adjoining streets.
