About us

Want to dance, shimmy and shake? Want to have loads of fun and make some great friends? Join us at EUSDS for swing dance lessons, socials, events and lots more!
Swing dancing is all about fun and freedom, it is connection and improvisation between you and your partner! Whether you are looking for a creative and social hobby, are partial to vintage style and jazz music, or just want to dance and have loads of fun doing it, EUSDS is the society for you!


Our lessons are open for complete beginners, and you don't need any previous experience or a partner to come along. So just bring yourself and your two feet, and you'll soon find that you are looking forward to Mondays to get your next dancing fix.
We usually teach Lindy Hop in Potterrow Venue every Monday, with classes for both intermediates and beginners, followed by social dancing. 
However, this semester, due to Covid-19, we are moving all our classes online with more focus on solo danced swing dance.
Our regular classes start on Monday 21st September. Learn to shim-sham while staying safe!
We will also post additional classes throughout the week, including Balboa, Solo Jazz and more! For more information, please see our full class structure.

Join us

We are soon starting a new term! If you would like to try out swing dancing in a fun and relaxed environment, please join us for a free taster class on our EUSDS Youtube Channel on Tuesday 15th September at 7:00pm or on Friday 18th September at 5:00pm. 
And after that, membership is only £10 for University of Edinburgh students (£15 otherwise) for an entire year of classes! That covers weekly lessons, social events, swing families and discounts at all our workshops. What a deal!
