7:00 – 8:00pm Lindy Hop Roots with Anna & Chris
In our latest Roots course, Anna and Chris will be sharing their favourite steps from the original lindy hoppers and putting some new twists on classic steps. We’ll be swinging hard and riding that rhythm train! To register for this course you should already be comfortable dancing 6-count, 8-count and charleston rhythms.


8:00 – 9:00pm Fundamentals with Chloé & Chris
Join Chris & Chloé for a 6 week course learning a routine inspired by one of the greats, Frankie Manning! Titled ‘The Frankie Groove’ you’ll learn all the classic moves and grooves, giving you a good foundation and understanding of the Lindy Hop. Perfect for beginners or those who have done some fundamentals level courses and want to perform a routine! This will be a fun groovy course and great way to finish off the year.
You are welcome to take our Fundamentals block as many times as desired, or until you are ready to move into an intermediate level.


8:00 – 9:00pm Solo Jazz with Brady King
Welcome to the final solo block of the year at Fitzroy Swing Patrol. This block Brady will be teaching a 1940’s jazz routine choreographed by the one and only Frankie Manning known as The Tranky Doo. This routine is a classic! It was performed many times at the Savoy Ballroom in Harlem back in the days, and is still a favourite among the Swing community. All levels welcome!
