All block booking introductory offers are pre-paid before your joining date.
Pay-as-you-go prices listed are cash prices. We now accept contactless payments for pay-as-you-go for a small small fee (less than 2%).
At this time we are very aware that some dancers will not want to mix with a variety of partners. And so if you come with a partner then you can stay together throughout the session - it's your choice. If you do not have a partner then when you contact us we shall see if we can offer you a space while maintaining a good balance between the leader and follower roles. Quite a few ladies learn both parts.
APPLY NOW TO START SOON
As always, couples booking together may stay together. Hand sanitiser is provided, face coverings are entirely optional. Obviously you don't come if you are symptomatic and/or should be isolating.

Lindy Hop dancers combine exploration of their own movement both with the experience of partnering with another dancer and sometime dancing solo.
Before you looked here you have probably browsed some Lindy Hop videos where you will have seen that there is wide variety of moves, tempo, styling, etc. Some videos show super-athletic professional dancers at the top of their game but do not be daunted. Our mission is to have happy folk learning how to enjoy social dance events.
