Dance Styles

Lindy Hop image

Lindy Hop

The mother of Swing dances is Lindy Hop and this is the core dance taught by Swing Patrol. We love to lindy and you can see how joyous it is by the smiles on people’s faces. It originated in Afro-American area of Harlem in the late 1930s and early 1940s. You can read about some of the original Lindy Hoppers in our Swing Stars section.

Blues image

Blues

Blues dance is all about interpreting and expressing the music. Many aspects of Blues dancing, such as call and response, emotional intensity, and tension and release, are directly related to the music. If you love blues music you’ll love blues dancing!

Solo image

Solo

Solo Jazz is a general term which covers a number of different moves which are danced separately from a partner. It can be improvised or as part a routine, such as the Shim Sham, Tranky Doo or Big Apple.

Balboa image

Balboa

Balboa originated in the Southern California and evolved as a response to the overcrowded dancefloors of the time. It has a closer embrace than Lindy Hop or partnered Charleston and is often danced to faster music as the tighter embrace allows for quicker movements.

Shag image

Shag

Shag's popularity has been increasing steadily in the last few years with Swing scenes all over the world embracing this high-energy vintage dance. Come and have a go!

Swing Patrol & COVID-19 virus

Hey dancers,   It’s important not to overreact to health scares but it’s equally important to be responsible. The advice below doesn’t just apply because of coronavirus – or the fact it’s peak time of year for seasonal flu anyway – but it applies at all times for all dance events. It’s important to take […]
