Welcome to start your swing dance journey!
On this page is listed all the necessary practical information for the course start.
All of our classes are held at our dance studios at Karjalankatu 2.
Clothing and gear
For the clothing, any clothes are ok, as long as you are comfortable and they allow some movement.
Footwear for most people are indoor shoes (sneakers etc.), but also socks or barefoot is ok. Your teachers will happily give more recommendations about the footwear.
You can be mentally prepared to sweat, so bringing a water bottle and a spare shirt may be a good idea.
The location is Alppitalo at Karjalankatu 2. There are Black Pepper Swing signs at the main entrance.
