We teach Swing Dance including Lindy Hop, Charleston, and general prancing about to swing music.
Lindy Hop is a partner dance which came over from America in the 1930s/40s and is the predecessor of rock and roll dancing. It's fun, energetic and bouncy. Before Lindy Hop, there was Charleston - this includes moves such as the "Scarecrow" and "Pecks" - you'll just have to come and find out for yourselves.
The classes will cover a number of different steps but you can take as much or as little from them as you want; it's open to complete beginners throughout the year. After a few classes you will realise Lindy Hop is all about having fun! There is no need to bring a partner (but friends are welcome), just remember flat shoes and comfy clothes!
