Victoria Park

Welcome to Swing Patrol Victoria Park

This is a great place to learn swing dancing, meet new people and have a laugh. The delightful Katie and Chawin 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!

Victoria Park


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
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.

9:20pm – Level 2 – Intermediate class
You’ve been doing beginners classes for a while and are comfortable with the basics. You are very comfortable dancing 6 count and Charleston and have learned an 8 count swing out (even if only recently!). You’re looking to refine your basics, brush up that swing out 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!

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