Have Fun and Start Dancing on Day One!

Welcome to SwingShoes

Welcome to SwingShoes! We offer weekly West Coast Swing group classes and private lessons for adults in Connecticut. Occasionally, we also feature Hustle, Salsa, and Night Club Two-Step. Newcomers are encouraged to begin their dance journey during the first week of any month, as the lessons will progress. Our home base is conveniently located at Dance Dimensions in Norwalk, CT, close to the junction of I-95 and Route 7. Group classes have between 20-40 students, and partners are not required because we rotate frequently. Get ready to have a fun, new experience.

A Pathway to Partner Dancing

We continue to make adjustments to keep our dance classes safe and fun for our community. 

Starting in June 2021, we will have fully vaccinated dance classes. To attend the classes, students are asked to pre-submit a picture of their completed vaccination card. As of July 27, the CDC has recommended for fully vaccinated people to wear a mask in public indoor settings in areas of substantial or high transmission, such as Fairfield County in CT. Students who are not vaccinated (or are immunocompromised) will have to wait until the CDC and state regulations deem it safe not to wear masks. By having a fully vaccinated class, we are keeping our dance community safe—and that’s something to dance about. 

Please get vaccinated and come to dance!

Group Classes

West Coast Swing in June 2019

Our weekly group classes in Connecticut are designed to get you dancing and meeting new people. These classes are taught on a monthly cycle. The Beginner series starts with the foundation steps and concepts on the first week and gets more challenging during the month. The Intermediate/Advanced series introduces more complicated patterns, footwork, and musicality. The end of each night's lessons are capped with a fun dance party.

See the calendar to start your journey.

Private Lessons

Private lessons give you the opportunity to learn at your own pace. Focus on technique, spins and turns, and moves to become a more proficient dancer. These lessons can focus on West Coast Swing, Hustle, Salsa, or Night Club Two-Step. You'll be amazed with how quickly you'll find solutions to your dance challenges. 

See the calendar for scheduling opportunities.
