Welcome to Jitterbugs
Looking for something different and fun?
Come and enjoy a night out with friends learning to swing dance. It’s a great way to meet people and get fit in a relaxed, friendly environment.
At Jitterbugs we teach the dances from the swing dance era including lindy hop, balboa, blues, charleston and even burlesque, as well as all the strolls of the swingtime craze. We love these dances and you’ll love them too. Our classes are based in the central Auckland area and well serviced by public transport.
We’re so sure you’ll love it, we’ll give you your first class FREE! This can be taken only during week 1 and week 2 of our block courses. Give it a go, with friends or on your own – everyone’s welcome!
Michelle Stoupe, Founder
No problem. Come along and give it a go. We are so convinced you will love it that we’ll give you your first ever class for free. All you need to do is turn up at one of our centrally located venues on week 1 or week 2 of the beginners block course, sign up to our mailing list and you’re in. If you have any questions, feel free to email Michelle or check out our First timer’s page or our FAQ page. See you on the dancefloor!
