We love sharing the fun and joy of swing dancing with everyone who wants to give it go. You may have seen us dancing on one of the BBC One's idents or you may have always wanted to learn to dance as an adult but never had the chance or you enjoy listening to swing music.
At Lindy Jazz our world revolves around Lindy Hop, Balboa, Blues and Charleston dances, inspired by Swing and Jazz music. We just couldn’t do without swing dancing, our amazing dance community, or tea and cake!
We offer weekly Lindy Hop and Swing Dance classes in Durham and Newcastle for anyone who wants to get up and dance. Plus private lessons, taster classes, regular workshops and dance events, including DJam, our annual, internationally renowned dance festival.
Our expert international teachers, acclaimed swing DJs specialising in swing and jazz music, and dancing community are always ready to welcome you with a friendly face, or to add a touch of pizazz to your event.
Our goal is to build a lively social dance scene, and encourage everyone to experience the joy of learning to swing dance. Our dedicated team of teachers, helpers and dancers are here to boost the health and happiness of our community through dancing.
Swing dancing is social dancing and our aim is to make it inclusive and fun for everyone - young, old, new and experienced dancers from all backgrounds. We help you enjoy dancing and making friends.
“Lindy Jazz is about swing dancing but our focus is about people”
Here at Lindy Jazz we’re passionate about all things swing. Volunteers are at the core of our swing dance community, helping to make Lindy Jazz a welcoming place for everyone. They get involved with everything from admin, event planning and management, to DJ’ing – some of them even train to teach.
Lindy Jazz is a Community Interest Company (CIC) and a member of the Federation for Communty Dance.
