Swing storms Brighton seafront as dancers perform on bandstand

BRIGHTON AND HOVE seafront has been swamped by swing dancing this summer following a series of bandstand dances organised by a national dance group. Swing Patrol, a national Brighton-based dance organisation with more than 1,500 members, has organised the dances on Hove Bandstand, the last of which took place this weekend. Describing the most recent bandstand dance, Scott Cupit, director of Swing Patrol, said:

“It was such a magical evening. With the sun and the music and the number of people attending, which must have totalled about 300, everything came together just perfectly.

Mr Cupit went on to say:

“We’re all passionate about swing music and it’s so great to see so many young people getting into an older style of dance. I think since coming to Brighton we’ve had a really good response, people here are very interested and as a city it’s a great place for swing. The bandstand dances provided the perfect retro setting to celebrate everything we like about the music that we love. We’ve had magnificent nights at the seafront all across the summer and we’re really excited to see what comes next.”
