Online Lessons with Swing Patrol

We miss our classes!  While we can’t dance and learn together at the moment, we’ve been busy creating some online lessons that you be interested in. All the classes are pre-recorded and when you book, you’ll be sent an email with the links to the classes.  Please don’t share these links with others as the income from the classes is helping us and the teachers keep going while we’re in lockdown. If you have a question for any of the teachers about the class, either comment on the relevant video or you can email [email protected] and we’ll pass along your enquiry.

Hi Cat, I just wanted to say a big thank you for the fabulous online classes! I'm a doctor in central Manchester and solo jazz is helping me keep my sanity and unwind after long days at work- you really can't underestimate the power of a good dance! Keep up the great work and stay safe.

Thanks so much for your work on putting this routine together!! I'm really enjoying learning aaaaaall the steps, the break down of each small section is so helpful and I found each week very well paced and easy to follow. Can't wait to see it all come together!

Thanks Jeff and Robyn, it's been brilliant... just about learnt the full routine at slow speed but now I must fine tune it ( to say the least).
