Our dances and courses

Are you visiting Gothenburg and feel like swing dancing? Come join us on Mondays at 8 pm at our venue at Doktor Fries torg or at one of the other upcoming social dances. If you are living in Gothenburg or are here more long term, we also regularly hold courses in Lindy Hop, Balboa, Boogie Woogie, Blues, Solo Jazz, Tap and occasionally Collegiate Shag. 

All of our courses are listed on the page Kurs och träning. The page is in Swedish, but click on the dance you are interested in, and you can see the courses available.
