Welcome to Swing Patrol Kilburn

Learn to swing dance at Swing Patrol Kilburn

Welcome to Swing Patrol Kilburn at the North London Tavern – we’re Pippa and Tobias and we can’t wait to get you started on this dance we love. We guarantee you’ll love it too!

We run our classes on a drop-in basis which means there’s no need to book in advance, and no need to bring a partner. Just turn up any week that suits you!


Every Wednesday we run three classes:

7:30pm – 8:30pm: Level 1 Beginner swing dance class
This will be a beginners class that will introduce new and existing dancers to the basics of the dances included under the Swing umbrella including 6 and 8 count Lindy Hop, Charleston and others.

8:45pm – 9:45pm: Level 1.5 Improvers class
This class will build on skills learned in Level 1 and will be a progression in your Swing learning. This class will help you develop the tools to move on up to the next level.

9:45pm – 10:30pm: Practice and social dancing
Your chance to practice what you learnt in class, try out your new moves, and have a social dance with your fellow classmates!

Taking more than one class on the same evening? Your second class is half price — just £5!

What is Swing dancing?

It’s a collection of fun and exciting dances from the 1920s-1940s including the Lindy hop and the Charleston. You can read more about it here.

We are looking forward to meeting and dancing with you soon!
