Welcome to Boogie Beat Swing

Teaching Swing Dancing in Dublin since 2001.

Announcement!!


Potential date for re-opening our Lindy Hop classes in The Liffey Trust Studios is Monday September 28th!

This will be a short 4-week session for the Beginners who were in the middle of a session when we closed and for any Improvers who want to join our Improvers class.

A brand new 6-week session will start Monday November 2nd!!

The wearing of masks and gloves is a possibility due to the nature of our dancing. Social distancing, where possible will still be observed and class numbers will be restricted.

This re-opening is subject to change depending on government guidelines.


Jamie and Clare are the teachers behind Boogie Beat Swing. We teach various styles of Swing Dancing in Dublin and have the longest-running Lindy Hop and Swing Classes in Ireland!

On Monday nights in The Liffey Trust Studios, we teach Lindy Hop, the original Swing dance that dates back to 1927. It’s a progressive 6-week course, meaning we build on steps from week to week. The Beginners class is meant for anyone who has never done Lindy Hop before (or anyone looking to refresh their basics!), whether you’ve done other styles of Swing or you’ve never set foot in a dance class before.

We also run a weekly social night, Route 66, in The Turks Head, Temple Bar in Dublin every Wednesday night. At the beginning of the night, we teach a Beginners class in East Coast Swing at 8pm. This class is a great introduction to swing dancing. You don’t need a partner as we rotate partners throughout the class. We also teach a Beyond the Basics class at 7:15pm for those who have been coming for a while and feel confident with the beginner class. At 9pm the social dance portion of the evening begins, where you can practice what you’ve learned, dance with lots of people (including more experienced but very friendly and approachable dancers), meet new people and have fun in general.

If you go to our Classes page, you will find information about ourselves, our dance classes and Swing music gigs happening around town (i.e. places to go dance). This website is updated on a semi-regular basis, so it is advisable to check in periodically to see if any gigs, class info or whatnot have been added. Page updates and other items of interest will be listed on the News page.

Reopening of Classes

We are looking at a potential date of September 28th for re-opening our Monday Lindy Hop classes in the Liffey Trust Studios!!

This date will be a 4 week course for the Beginners we were in the middle of a session with before the closure and a new, short session for any Improvers who would like to join.

The wearing of gloves and masks will be a possibility due to the difficulty with social distancing in a dance class such as ours, although some social distancing will still need to be observed and class numbers will be restricted, but it will be a start.

Unfortunately, at this time, our Wednesday Route 66 night will remain closed until dancing in bars and nightclubs is allowed again.

All of the above is subject to change, depending on government guidelines.

We look forward to seeing you all again soon!
