Lindy Hop Classes with Reading University Swing Dance Society (RUSDS)

Wednesday Evenings at Wessex Hall, on Whiteknights Campus
Combined Level 1 & 2 Class from 7:30pm | Social dancing from 8.30pm

NOTE: Class is currently on Easter break. First class back will be on Wednesday 18th April.

RUSDS hosts fun and informal swing dance classes taught by Reading Swing Jam at the Whiteknights Campus of the University of Reading. Join us to learn partner dances from the 1920’s-50’s: RUSDS classes are open to both students and non-students alike! Not sure what lindy hop is? Check out this cute introduction! Also check out our Beginner’s Guide to our Lindy Hop classes.

LEVEL 2

Join our Level 2  Class if you’ve attended our Level 1 Class regularly for at least a year already or have joined us with some knowledge of lindy hop. Level 2 students should be comfortable dancing both 8-count and 6-count basic rhythms as well as familiar with Swing Outs, Lindy Circles and side-by-side Charleston.

LEVEL 1

No dance experience of any kind necessary. Join us to gain a solid introduction to partnered Swing dancing. No prior knowledge will be assumed and steps will be taught from scratch.

Social Dancing

After announcements from the Reading University Swing Dance Society committee, we social dance! The perfect opportunity to practice what you’ve learn in class, ask your teachers any questions and get to know each other. We *highly recommend* staying for this portion of the evening because it’s on the dance floor where most of your learning will happen and practice is the only way to improve!

What to bring?
Comfortable shoes and clothes suitable for dancing and active movement (please avoid wearing high heels or shoes that slip off easily)
Bottle of water
Fan or towel
Change of shirt/top
Deodorant and breath mints
Notebook

PLEASE NOTE: No partner necessary! Partners are rotated regularly throughout the class.  These classes run weekly on Wednesday evenings during term-time only.  Please visit the RUSDS webpage or Facebook Group for full details about classes, prices, venues and how to contact the group.
