Camden History – Arrianne

My first London swing class was the Annie & Saul at Camden Swing Patrol. I loved their teaching and the people in the class and was hooked. I have since attended Swing Patrol Stockwell, Waterloo and Harringay and now am a member of Brat Pack.

This year I have performed at the Hippodrome for Norma Miller, Done aerials in front of hundreds of people at Blitz Parties, danced on London Live TV and competed at the recent London Jitterbug Championships.

If Camden Swing Patrol hadn’t been such an inspiring place to learn and dance I may not have had the amazing swing dancing journey that I have enjoyed so much.
