Swing Patrol Highbury !!

Welcome to Swing Patrol Highbury!

What better way to spend a Monday evening than by heading on down to The Horatia on Holloway Road, a mere 4 minute walk from Highbury & Islington Station, to learn how to swing dance!


“What is swing dancing?” I hear you cry! It encompasses a number of dances spanning through the 1920s 30s , & 40s, including the Charleston, the Lindy Hop, Balboa and Blues.

At Swing Patrol Highbury, our main focus is on Lindy Hop which is a truly fun and happy dance.

Every Monday evening our teachers, James & Johanna, teach three 1 hour classes from 7pm until 10.15pm 


Beginners’ Class 7pm -8pm

No partner or previous experience is necessary! This class is perfect for the absolute beginner, breaking down all moves into simple steps.


Level 1.5 Class  ”The Fundamentals” 8pm – 9pm

 This is great for the dancer who has been dancing for several weeks, has established an understanding of the basics and is now ready to step their dancing up a gear!


Level 2.5 Class “Intermediates and lots of cool stuff” 9pm – 10pm

Our last class of the evening is for the strong intermediate lindy hopper who is in search for a challenge. Not for the faint hearted


Free Social Dancing If our classes are not enough for you, then take advantage of our free social dancing until the end of the evening. James and Johanna keep the music swinging after class giving everyone opportunity to ask questions, have a few drinks, practice their new moves, social dance and most of all..have fun!
