Please note - for full details please visit our official website: www.rusds.wordpress.com

To keep up to date on our events please join our Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/rulindyhoppers/

We pride ourselves on creating a fun, relaxed and inclusive atmosphere where absolutely anybody can enjoy the vintage pleasures of Lindy Hop and associated Swing Dances! We run weekly classes during term-time for everybody from complete beginners through to experienced dancers. We also attend (and sometimes host) regular local swing music events; perfect for enjoying the blissful combination of live vintage music, great company and practicing your social dancing skills!

All of our classes and events are open to anybody, both students and non-students. Age and dancing ability do not matter – we are 100% beginner-friendly. So whether you have never danced in your life, have danced other styles but fancy something new, or are a seasoned lindy-hopper new to the area – do come along and meet us. Your first lesson is always free; so there’s nothing to lose! We promise you’ll want to come back. (Warning: may cause addiction but won’t seriously damage your wealth!)

If you have any questions, check-out our FAQ page, or contact us. Most dancers we know put-off trying/learning for years, and now thoroughly regret not trying it sooner! We’re the ideal beginner-friendly environment to take those first steps.
