Practising the moves!

Sadly our venue Electric Social has now closed its doors. We are in negotiation with several possible new venues for our Brixton classes and hope to re-open soon after Easter.

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 improvers - and from 2015 an intermediates 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.

Classes at Brixton

Join any time. No need to book (just turn up). No partner needed.
