7:00 – 8:00pm Lindy Hop Roots with Chloe & Brady **NEW TIME**
Come and learn a Harlem Hot Shots routine! The Swedish superstars who specialise in authentic swing dancing and pay homage to its Harlem roots have given us special permission to teach and perform one of their grooviest routines with you. It’s all about the roots, the passion and the swing, mixing both partnered and solo equally. We’re inviting all intermediate and advanced dancers to join us, and can’t wait!


8:00 – 9:00pm Fundamentals with Chloe & Brady **NEW TIME**
This block we want to explore social dancing. Mixing rhythms and shapes in simple ways that swing and make sense. For beginner dancers, we’ll be breaking down the fundamental rhythms and adding interesting shapes, to give you confidence to dance all night. No prior knowledge required.
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 Anna van Dijk
Come and learn an all-levels solo jazz routine to perform at the Swing Patrol Performance Ball. It’s not mandatory to perform, anyone is welcome to come and learn with no pressure. We’ll cover authentic jazz rhythms and how to dace them – and have a lot of fun with them.
