Welcome to Swing Patrol Old Street

Old Street has a new home!

We have moved venues!

We are now at the Golden Lane Community Centre, just a short walk from the Nomad. (Please use the car park entrance in Fann Street).

A big hello from Matt and Nancy!

We run weekly swing dance classes on Mondays at the Golden Lane Community Centre teaching the classic dances from the 1920-40s, including the Lindy Hop and Charleston. Our venue of the Golden Lane Community Centre and is a hidden gem. It’s in the middle of the housing estate and is easily accessible from Goswell Road (behind the yellow apartment building) or from Golden Lane (where you walk into the estate near Fann Street).

Our level 1 classes are suitable for complete beginners and are run on a drop-in basis which means there is no need to book in advance or bring a partner. Just turn up whenever suits you and be ready for a fun evening!

In our level 2 class, we’ll help you master more moves, transitions and refine your social dancing skills, again no need to book in advance or bring a partner. Just turn up!
