Welcome to Swing Patrol Spitalfields

Learn to swing dance with Swing Patrol Spitalfields

We are open every week. Just come along at 7pm and have some fun! No partner or experience required.


7:00pm: Level 1 – Beginner swing dance class
No experience or partner required! This level is about having a go and getting started with the basics of swing dancing. Two, three or four left feet are very welcome. This level is all about the FUN!

8:15pm: Level 2 – Intermediate class
You’ve been doing beginners classes solidly for months. You are very comfortable dancing 6 count and Charleston. You’ve learned an 8 count swingout, but maybe just recently and are looking to refine your basics, brush up that swingout and get some new material under your belt. You’re starting to social dance regularly (or have been for a while) and want a little more lead/follow clarity in your life!

9:15pm – 9:45pm: Free social dancing and practice time!
Grab a drink, stick around, ask us questions about your dancing, or simply have some nice social dancing with your friends – we’ll play the music 🙂

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

All classes are drop in classes, meaning no booking and no partners are required. Just turn up ready to have some fun!

Proud to be one of Swing Patrol’s longest running venues. Jennifer and Matt are passionate, fun teachers, who will take you through everything step by step. Two left feet are no obstacle; we make sure you walk out smiling! So come along and have some fun 🙂
