Dance Lessons 2022

(Please note the below classes listed were for 2022. This year's dance lesson schedule will be posted soon.)

Twinwood offers a wide range of FREE dance lessons during the festival to get you up and on those dance floors! With classes for complete beginners as well as more experienced dancers, there is something for everyone. There’s no need to sign up - you can just turn up and have fun!

We host a dazzling and comprehensive array of dance lessons on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, where you can learn the Lindy Hop, Balboa, Charleston and many more Swing dance styles. We also teach a mix of social ballroom lessons and novelty dances, as well as beginner Jive classes for those looking for some great Rock ‘n’ Roll moves!

There’s so much to choose from, and daily lessons are held across four different large indoor venues at the festival. You'll also find the full dance workshop timetable detailed in the day planner that is given to all festival arrivals at the reception tent.
