The world of swing dances

At La Cabane à Swing, everyone dances with everyone! Here, dancing is a game of listening to music and each other. You can dance to a variety of songs. Each dance is improvised based on the rhythm and nuances of the music as well as the basic steps and movements known to the dancers.


Advantages? No need to register as a couple! By varying your partners, you learn to consolidate your bases and discover new energies. So you have more freedom and creativity. Dancing is an activity and not a performance, because you can participate in dance evenings even if you are not accompanied. In short, learning swing is like learning a language rather than learning a song by heart! Join La Cabane à Swing.
