Brixton Lindy hop

Our Brixton classes opened in late 2011 and Ciana and Oli soon established a thriving local swing dance scene based around Electric Social, which sadly closed its doors in 2015 (you can still catch Ciana and Oli teaching the jazz dance class at C Jam on Tuesdays in Balham).

For 2016 we're very pleased and excited that Romayne Etwaroo is re-starting classes, this time at Brixton Community Base!

About the night

Swing is a lively and fun style of social dancing for people of all ages.

The classes are perfect for those with little or no dance experience. Swing dance is a great way of meeting new people, learning dance with a partner, keeping fit and having fun.

You will learn: - Basic fundamentals of Swing dance - Learn a variety of 6 count steps and footwork combinations.

You do not need to bring a partner.

Dance is a great way to boost confidence in a supported and fun environment.

    Learn all the basics with simple fun routines aimed at getting you dancing quickly - with plenty of emphasis on good lead/follow technique and connection as with all Swingland classes! No experience required. Absolute beginners always welcome!

Class rotation

Partners are rotated regularly in the classes so you get a chance to dance with everyone. This is the best way to learn and it's a great way to get to know people too! Even if you do come with a partner, we strongly recommend joining in the rotation - you will learn much quicker!

Your teachers

The class is taught by Romayne Etwaroo.

Romayne trained full time in Contemporary dance, Physical Theatre, Street and Ballet from the age of 16.

Her love of music from the 1920's to 1950's led her to Swing dance, ever since she has specialised in Lindy hop and the Charleston.

Romayne has since performed internationally for various dance and theatre companies, choreographers and artists in London, France, Italy and Japan.

She loves teaching and her classes are both energetic and fun.

Brixton Lindy hop - Admission

The class kicks off at 7pm - please be prompt.

  • Beginners class - £8
