Holly Domney

Positive, fun and sociable, it was inevitable that swing dancing would be Holly’s thing. Back in Sheffield in 2014, chin-deep in final year stress at university, Holly took her first swing dancing class as a break from the books. She had never laughed so hard. Upon moving to London to edit and publish crime fiction, she immediately sought out a local swing scene to keep up her dancing and make some new friends. She discovered Swing Patrol, her London lindy hop home. She’s gone on to attend swing festivals in the UK and abroad. She loves social dancing, but when there’s a jam circle, she grabs her regular dance partner to jump in and throw some aerials. She says, “It’s just such a rush! So freeing! You get up, do your thing on the dance floor and have a good laugh with really supportive people who also love to dance like nobody’s watching – even when everyone’s watching.”
