Get the Full Swing experience with Wellington’s first Vintage Dance School

We’ve moved! Full Swing is now at 80 Cuba Street, above Glassons (entrance on Dixon Street up the stairs)

There’s something about that rhythm. The rhythm that makes your toes tap inside your shoes, your fingers itch to drum out the beat on your knees, that sneaks the smile across your face from the moment the music starts.
It’s a rhythm to play to, to laugh and talk and sing along to – but that swing beat is made for dancing, and it’s the dancing we love!

Full Swing is Wellington’s home of swing dance, the meeting place for absolutely everyone with a longstanding, new found or yet-to-be-discovered love of that swing thing. So if you’ve caught the beat in your bones, you’re looking for a social scene with people who love to move to great music, or you’re after a hobby and some exercise that’s so much fun it doesn’t feel like it, we warn you now: once the jitterbug gets you, you may never truly be the same.

We teach a wide range of swing era dances, so check out our classes page to see what catches your fancy – with Lindy Hop, Charleston, Tap, Blues and Balboa we have something for every speed and personality.

We teach from absolute beginner never-done-a-step-in-my-life-not-sure-how-I-walked-in-here-let’s-go-right-from-the-start level up to high level advanced classes, and no partner is required to attend – just come along and jump in, meet new people and learn heaps of cool moves right from the first lesson.

Swing dance is big on the social scene, so keep up to date with all the live music we’re heading to, and all the great swing events around Wellington, New Zealand and the world through our events page, Facebook group, Twitter and Instagram. Full Swing is part of a fantastic global network of swing dancers, so you never know where it might take you!

All courses run over 6 weeks and a full six class pass costs only $90 (Cash or EFTPOS also available on the door).

We also offer a 6 week unlimited pass for $240. This allows access to an unlimited number of our evening classes for a 6 week period.

If you just want to give it a go or can’t make every week, drop in at the casual rate of $20 per class.
