Classes On Hold

Hi all of our HappensDance family,

Regarding COVID-19, we have decided it is best for us to cancel classes indefinitely, until further notice.

For our 6 week beginners, your passes are able to restart whenever we are able to be back up and running, there will be no expiry on them. If you've already done 3 weeks of your 6 week course, you'll be welcome to start again at week 1 at no extra cost.

For our 10 week class passes, there is no expiry on them at all.

Please keep an eye on our social media over the coming weeks, especially if you are social distancing or isolating, as we will be sharing some fun online content to keep you all entertained for free.

If you have any questions at all please don't hesitate to get in contact with us on Facebook or at info@happensdance.com.au.

Stay happy, healthy, and can't wait to see you all at dance again soon.

Love Bec, Sam & the HD team

What is West Coast Swing?

West Coast Swing is a modern partner dance, with origins in Lindy Hop, and is constantly evolving. It can be danced socially or in competition, and to almost any 4/4 music style: blues, pop, soul, RnB, funk, jazz, contemporary, hip-hop – the list goes on!

HappensDance aims to create a fun community of dancers who enjoy the social element of West Coast Swing, while also challenging our students to improve as they learn. Our teachers love West Coast Swing and seeing students grow in both confidence and skill level over time.
