Lindy hop in Brixton

Opened in late 2011, Brixton is one of our newest class nights.

The night is run by Ciana, whose enthusiasm for all things swing is highly infectious!

Initially only a beginners class, Ciana has now added an improvers class too!

What you'll learn

The original swing dance - the Lindy hop as danced in the great ballrooms of the Harlem Renaissance, such as The Savoy.
