The best Lindy Hop teachers
Sep 2020
Jeff Tong and Michaela Delmonte were the best teachers! Smart, funny, lovely, patient, and of course great dancers. Can't believe how much we learned from scratch in just an hour - we had a great time and the time flew by.

Solo Charleston workshop, London N1

A lovely teacher, with fab people. But the floor was terrible, not slippery at all. Everyone abandoned the proper Charleston foot moves as would have damaged joints and it was incredibly overcrowded, so no space to swing arms, everyone had to abandon that too.

The instructors are great and you come away with enough knowledge to get you dancing the basic steps. Definitely worth a try!

Swing! Patrol @ Waterstones Piccadilly
Feb 2017 • Friends
Myself and a cousin thought this would be a good base for our quest to learn to jive (and thus fit in at the next family wedding) so we popped along to this - it's on the 1st Monday of every month in the downstairs coffee shop/bar.
£10 each (and worth it)

It was (to quote Tony the Tiger) Grrrreeeeeaaaatttt! The instructors were cute and explained all the moves/history really well and the whole group had the hang of it by the end of the lesson. I really loved it so will be back for next month's lesson! Each lesson is targeted at beginners and a new routine is learned every week which will give you a base to move up to a more advanced class (they have plenty) if you get addicted (as I think I will be!).

Once the class is over the music stays on so you can practice or just soak up the atmosphere with a glass of wine.

There's a bar on the 4th floor that does 2-4-1 cocktails between 5-7 so although I wouldn't advise too many before the lesson one for a little Dutch courage (the dark and stormy is really good!) won't do you any harm.

Swing Dance Day
May 2016 • Couples
Great present for wannabe dancers. All ages attended, many had been given the experience as a present. The teacher was very amusing and built up the basic steps to enable most people to be able to give it a go. MThe only problem was that there were too many people for the size of the venue resulting in some collisions and crashes. However it was a really good fun experience.

Fun Charleston lesson
Jul 2015 • Couples
Decided to pop in to a Charleston course on a Tuesday evening in Angel. Reasonable pricing and really welcoming atmosphere, felt right at home.

We went to a lesson that was supposedly ultra-beginner friendly. With no previous swing experience but a season of lessons in other dances we managed fine and had great fun. Some previous dancing experience might be good to have though, the lesson progressed quite rapidly. The teachers were very friendly and easy to follow, and also gave individual guidance to those in need.

Recommended!

Great fun, reasonable price

I went to the absolute beginners Charleston class. The teachers were very friendly and good, and the atmosphere was welcoming. For me the level was good, but if you have difficulties to hear the beat, then it might be too difficult. Great fun, I truly recommend!
