There will be classes suitable for all levels and they are drop-in so there's no need to book ahead.

12.15 – 13.00 – Basics of Balboa

For the Aerial class, you will need to bring a trusted partner as we won't be rotating in that class for safety reasons.
Put on your dancing shoes and Lindy Hop away at Bishopsgate Swing, a social dance for dancers of all levels.
Swing Patrol have been teaching swing dance and related styles across London since 2009. They are passionate about swing dancing and share this passion through their teaching of Lindy Hop, Charleston, Blues, Balboa and Solo Charleston - all dances which come under the Swing Dance umbrella.
After the Free Swing Classes, why not join us for Bishopsgate Swing that same evening, where you can continue to develop your skills and dance the night away!
