Welcome to Swing Patrol Forest Gate

Learn to swing dance with Swing Patrol Forest Gate

Welcome to Swing Patrol Forest Gate, where we have the wonderful job of teaching you how to swing dance. Every Monday at the Forest Tavern we will teach you various styles of dancing from the swing era, including Lindy hop, Charleston, and a bit of solo jazz.

We’re really looking to build a community of people and dancers out east, and with a great foundation of lovely people, we can only create something truly special! We hope to see you soon 🙂

Class Details

7pm – 8pm: Level 1 Beginner swing dance class
Our level 1 class is suitable for complete beginners and is run on a drop-in basis. There is no need to book in advance or bring a partner, but it’s also fun if you can bring a friend so you have someone to practice with! Just turn up whenever suits you and get ready to have some fun. (People claiming to have ‘two left feet’ needn’t be shy!)

8:15pm – 9:15pm: Level 1.5 Improvers class
If you’re feeling comfortable in the first class we encourage you to try the second. This is where we expand on the first class, and challenge you a bit more.

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