Dance in Adelaide

As dancers in Adelaide, we meet on the lands of the Kaurna people, the traditional owners of the Adelaide region, and respect their spiritual relationship to their country. We also acknowledge that jazz and blues music and dance has roots in the experience and culture of African American people, and pay our respects to the musicians and dancers who came before us, to their expression, and their art. Ours is a safe, inclusive space, that opposes racism. 

SCHOOLS AND GROUPS

Adelaide boasts a vibrant swing dance scene, made up of people from all walks of life. With an underlying ethos of inclusivity, openness and joy through the celebration of music and dance, Adelaideans can participate in a wide variety dance classes, performances, parties and social gatherings per week. Come dance with us!
