We're a collective of passionate people supporting Wellington dancers and musicians.
Our goal is to inspire swing dancing and to grow the fantastic Wellington community of dancers and musicians.

What we offer
Classes in Lindy Hop, Blues, and Solo Jazz
'Swing' is the umbrella term for a wide range of different styles of dances. We offer a number of popular swing dances, including lindy hop and blues. We're always looking to add more fun styles as we grow, so make sure you check in to our class schedule and sign up to our mailing list for regular updates.
Social Dancing Events
At Sugarfoot Stomp, we believe the goal of learning to dance is to take what you've learned in class and bust it out on the social dance floor! No matter your level or experience dancing, swing is meant to be enjoyed and shared, and what better way to do that than to live music at one of Wellington's fantastic bars or event spaces?
We regularly host events around the Wellington region, with some of the capital's best jazz musicians. Make sure to check in from time to time, and to follow us on Facebook so you can keep up to date with what's going on near you!
