New Classes for Dorset in Autumn 2018

The Swing Dance Company will be starting new SwingJive Courses in Dorset, from Autumn 2018. Initially, we will be running Absolute Beginners Swing Jive classes in Weymouth, Bridport and Dorchester.

Dorset classes for Nicola

Our Absolute Beginners SwingJive Courses and follow-on courses are designed for couples to learn together on weekday evenings. They are a great way to get active, spend quality time with a partner, socialise with others and learn a new skill. You can put everything into practice at end of term social events too!

Introducing Nicola


Nicola will be teaching lessons in the new Dorset locations, she is currently one of The Swing Dance Company most popular teachers in our core Hampshire area.

She can’t wait to start teaching her new classes in the Dorset area. This has become possible as a result of her plans to relocate to Dorset from Hampshire.  An enthusiastic, life-long social dancer, Nicola is currently teaching bumper sized classes in Portsmouth. She blossomed through The Swing Dance Company’s teacher training programme over recent years. She quickly established herself as a popular, responsible and versatile member of the team, contributing to lessons in Portsmouth, Fareham and Southampton.

Want to be a Teaching Assistant?

Nicki needs teaching assistants! If you are, or you know, a good dancer in the Dorset area who might be interested to join our team, please get in touch via our contact form. Normally, talented dancers from other dance styles transfer to SwingJive very well. Naturally, teaching assistants receive free training to reach class demonstrator status. The commitment would be for at least one weekday evening per week during term time. This can be a paid or volunteer role.

Because becoming a Teaching Assistant can lead on to full teacher training, this could be a perfect opportunity for potential instructors to get involved.

Know a Great Venue in Dorset?

We’re currently looking for venues and we would welcome local knowledge about places that might work for us. Anybody with suggestions for dance class locations, please get in touch via our contact form.

Business Opportunities for Dance Teachers in Other Areas

Nicola and The Swing Dance Company are joining forces to operate this Dorset venture together under the company’s banner and branding. It will operate as a business partnership between instructor Nicola, who will lead the classes, and The Swing Dance Company, who will manage the admin.

Unlike the new arrangement with Nicola, we operate most Swing Dance Company classes with in-house instructors. However we will be starting most future locations as business teaching partnerships. This means opportunities will be available for new teaching partners. In the future potential teaching partners can create a successful business, benefitting from our business systems, branding and experience from 17 years running successful classes and events.

Get In Touch!

If the rewarding lifestyle of a dance teacher coupled with the reassurance of partnering with a sound, established business is interesting to you, please get in touch.

Any potential teaching partners who would like to discuss business opportunities are invited to contact us at
