The Big Practice 2019!

The Big Practice (and other things)…

 

Each year in February we hold a 2 hour session in the lovely large ballroom at Bishopsgate Institute. It is totally free of charge, and students of all levels are all welcome to come and ask absolutely any (dance-related) questions they have! We also have mini workshops happening throughout the room where we teach all kinds of dance moves and tricks!

 

This year, to commemorate Swing Patrol’s 10th Anniversary, we added some special extras onto our annual Big Practice. In addition to the two hours, we had a variety of free workshops where we taught choreographies, dips and tricks, hand to hand charleston and more!

 

Check out some photos of the event in the gallery below!
