Throughout the year Full Swing hosts and supports a great range of fun events open to everyone…

The thing about dancers is we never can sit still. We’re always tapping a foot, trying a move or leaping up to find exciting new adventures – and if we can’t find any, well, we’d better make some!

And with this many dancers in one place, there’s always something on the calendar.
We’ve got our regular weekly Speakeasy, where everyone from first time in the door to the “old timers” are welcome for a chat and a dance, we show up en masse to gigs around town with Wellington’s fantastic jazz bands, and we’ve got our ear to the ground for the first rumours of national and international dance events on the horizon.

We also have the Full Swing Social Club, with regular non-dancing events and activities so we can all get to know who’s who, try something new and have a laugh without worrying about what our feet are up to.

Check out our event listings below, and keep an eye on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for up to the minute info on where we’re heading, so you’ve always got the scoop!

Next Events

To honour the brave and reckless souls who braved the prohibition, every Friday night we crank up the jukebox and get the joint jumping.

With the finest local DJs spinning all the swing jazz and blues you could ask for, and a table full of nibbles to fuel the feet, Speakeasy is a great place to catch up, have a drink, a dance and get to know other local dancers.

Social dancing is the best way to take what you learn in classes and make it magic – and the best fun you’ll find this side of the 30s!

When: Friday nights, 8.00pm onward
Where: Full Swing Studios, 80 Cuba Street
Cost: $5 entry
