Upcoming Courses in 2024:


  • Swingout Course: 3rd – 24th April. The course will go over the basic shape of a swingout and progress to more in depth technique and a couple of variations to spice things up a bit. This course is for people who’ve never learnt a swing out, but have a solid grasp of the fundamentals of Lindy hop – this is the next step for you. It is also appropriate for those who have learnt a swing out shape and want to improve on their technique and learn a variation or two.


  • Tandem Charleston Course: 1st – 22nd May. This course is for those who have a good grasp of basic partnered Charleston and are looking for more. Tandem Charleston aka ‘Back to Back’ Charleston is awesome fun, looks amazing and you can do it easily to fast music. The course will focus on core Tandem Charleston entries, exits and fun things to do while you’re there. No prior knowledge of tandem Charleston required but 30s / side by side Charleston basic is necessary.


  • Frankie’s Moves Course: 29th May – 19th June. Frankie Manning (aka The Ambassador of Swing) had some great classic moves that we think all lindy hoppers should have in their repertoire! This course is aimed at dancers who are comfortable with the basics and looking for some new cool moves. We’ll spend a good amount of time on each move so that you can lead and follow them confidently on the social dance floor.


  • Balboa Basics Course: 26th June – 17th July. Balboa is a dance in the swing family, and is related to Lindy Hop. Typically danced faster but actually a lot less energetic. People enjoy this dance for being able to dance all night whatever the tempo. Our Balboa Basics course will help you build your basic skills giving you a solid foundation in balboa moves and techniques. No previous dance experience necessary. Learn alongside a small group of other new dancers in a structured environment.
