Testimonials

"Truly unforgettable times spent during this Pandemic.   Never thought that it was possible to join a dancing class only a few steps from my living room!  Your ‘Big Apple’ classes have been great." Elizabeth Insley

"I’m loving Simon and Anna’s online Jazz and Charleston classes. I’m actually dancing more now than was before lockdown. It works really well, I’m always at the front of class with Zoom! It’s really relaxed and we can ask questions during the class." Kezia Carter

"...one shows the steps and one watches the screen to give joint and individual guidance and understand what needs working on before moving on. .... they can also demonstrate how the moves get incorporated into lindyhop..... Oh... and of course they are really great dancers, really experienced teachers..." Lucy Frears

"The Live Online Solo Jazz & Charleston Classes with Simon and Anna Selmon are fantastic!  Not only are they an absolutely great work-out from home, but I have learnt so much!" Emma Callow

What should I do ahead of online workshops?

Install Zoom: We will be connecting via Zoom video conference. Please take a moment to download Zoom for FREE at www.zoom.us. You will need to have the application downloaded to your desktop, phone or tablet prior to the start of the class.

Prepare the space: Try to be in a quiet, well-lit place for our video call. Think about how to position the camera before starting the class (we should see all of you if possible). Please be aware of your surroundings: clear a suitable space where you can move freely and safely. Think about your neighbours: let them know you will be doing the class / playing music, or perhaps put sports socks over your shoes to dampen the sound (but be careful if they are slippery on your floor).

Connect early: Click the link a 5-10 minutes before the start of the class so we can let you in and check the sound and video is working.

During the class: We will put everyone on mute except ourselves during most of the class. We will take questions at regular intervals. Use the "Raise Hand” button under the “Participants” tab at the bottom of the window.

Refund Policy

If you let us know 8 days or more prior to the workshop starting we will offer you a full refund. 1-8 days a 75% refund. No refunds will be given less than 24 hours before the workshop. However, you can transfer or sell your ticket to someone else as long as they are the same dance level as yourself. You will bear the sole responsibility to exchange monies with the person you sell your ticket to and that they are of an appropriate level and role for the workshop. Please email mail@swingdanceuk.com in advance and provide us with any name changes in writing prior to the event.

What past students say

The Mini Booster workshops coached by Simon and Anna pulled me out of my dancing rut, challenged my abilities and broadened my knowledge. Simon and Anna are warm, kind and fiercely talented dancers and teachers. I can confidently say that I have left every workshop a better dancer with more confidence and always, a big smile, having made new friends.
