This fortnight’s variation is Skipping
For when you’re in a yippy skippy kinda mood!
This is a great one for newer dancers–noticeably different from your standard footwork but the rhythm and the shape are pretty low-stress.
Learn how to dance the Charleston with a partner just like they did back in the day. Bookings are now open for this beginner friendly course starting this July. Its likely to sell out quickly so get in touch to book your place now!
A course that will get you dancing this energetic dance everywhere you go. We’ll give you a good number of moves and the technique to social dance 20s and 30s style Charleston. So whether you’re going to a Great Gatsby party or a Big Band Swing Dance–we’ve got you covered! This is a great course for complete beginners or those who have done a bit of lindy hop and are looking for more moves to add to their repertoire.
A bit of trivia: Our Charleston dancers were actually featured in the first season of Peaky Blinders (that’s us on the left) and we got to teach the Cillian Murphy and Annabelle Wallis how to dance!

Take a look at this to give you an idea about Partnered Charleston:
Summer is the perfect time to step out of your comfort zone and try something new! Our Lindy Hop Fundamentals Course is a great way to have a go at learning swing dancing in a low pressure environment. We’ll take you through the basics in a small class with other beginners just like you. After four weeks you’ll have the skills and confidence to have a little boogie next time you pass a band on the street or to wow your friends at weddings.
We cover the basics of Lindy Hop over the course of four weeks. Each week builds on the last with plenty of time for review and repetition to give you a solid foundation in basic moves and techniques. We often have people in class who’ve never tired partner dancing before–so if this is you don’t worry. Our small class sizes help you get to know a lovely group of people so that you’ll have friends to dance with when you come along to a social dance or drop in class. The course is appropriate for absolute beginners as well as anyone who wants to brush up on their basics.
