Classes & Workshops

Down South Swing has been thrilled to run vintage dance classes for over 15 years. We will be ending our class programming on 12/31/2018, and for the last months of operation, we're excited to offer classes at 2003 prices! Just $40 for the four week courses, or $15 for drop-ins!


Down South Swing classes run four weeks, one hour per week. See the calendar below for the dates and times of the upcoming classes.


Workshops are one-day or one-weekend classes in a specialized subject, and are often a more intensive learning environment.

November Classes

Level 1 & Level 2 classes run year long, except December. Level 3 and up will skip November and December. Since these levels do not have regular four-week courses in November and December, Level 3+ memberships purchased in September & October will skip November and December, restarting in January. Level 3+ Memberships purchased in November and December will begin in January. Some June and July courses are workshop-format and one-evening intensives, please refer to the calendar for dates and times.

Special Topic Workshop pricing varies, and while not included in memberships, members and partner registrations receive discounts on workshop tuitions.

Partners: Discounts available when you register with a partner! $20 off when you register with a partner for 4-week courses. 15% off when you register with a partner for a 3-month pass.

Cancellation: Online registration closes 4 days before courses commence. Courses without a minimum of 8 students will be cancelled, and tuition will be refunded. (Membership holders see below) Cancellation will be posted on our calendar, registration form and notifications via email. Student cancellations made in writing (email is preferred) before online registration closes will be given a full refund. Cancellations received in writing after online registration is closed but before the first day of class will be given a credit equal to their tuition paid. Cancellations received after the first day of class will result in a forfeiture of tuition.

Level info in a nutshell:

4-Week Courses: Please complete all Level 1 courses (or equivalent) before moving up to Level 2, as you will need the material from all three Level 1's for any Level 2 course. Pre-requisite courses may be completed with any Lindy Hop instruction group. If you have a question about your level, feel free to contact us.

Memberships: Your level and curriculum (i.e. Blues or Lindy) will be printed on your membership card, and it will need to be presented at each class after your initial visit.  Memberships are activated the 1st of each month, i.e., if you purchase a membership in the middle of January, your membership will be active February 1-April 30.   If your class level is canceled any month, you may redeem your membership that month in the form of a 45-minute private or semi-private lesson. Once your membership is activated, there are no refunds. I mean, come on! They are such a deal!! Take all the classes!
