Welcome to Swing Patrol Victoria Park
This is a great place to learn swing dancing, meet new people and have a laugh. The delightful Angus and Katie are your teachers for the evening, and we guarantee you’ll leave with a big smile on your face and a skip in your step! We’re upstairs at the Royal Inn on the Park, a classic east London pub with good ale, excellent food and friendly staff. So come for class then stay afterwards for a dance and a drink.
We teach three classes every Tuesday night. All classes are run on a drop in basis, which means there’s no need to book in advance and no partner required. Just turn up!
7:00pm: Level 1 – Beginners swing dance class
These classes are suitable for complete beginners, no experience required — we’re always delighted to see first timers. We go over the basics every week and then throw in some new moves to get you swinging. We teach a range of swing rhythms like Charleston, 6-beat Lindy hop and 8-beat Lindy hop.
8:15pm: Level 1.5 – Improvers class
SPECIAL PROJECTS. We mix things up in this class, sometimes building on what we’re working on in Level 1, sometimes teaching routines or something completely different. If you enjoy Level 1 and want to be challenged, then stay for this class. And if you come to Level 2 but fancy a little extra, this is the place for you.
9:15pm Level 2 – Intermediate class
This is our intermediate class. We move a bit faster in this class so we expect our dancers to have mastered the basics of Charleston, 6-beat and 8-beat. Want some more challenging 8-beat moves? Come on over. Want to work on transitions and social dancing? This is it.
Taking more than one class on the same evening? Your second (or third) class is half price — just £5!
