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.

Move your dancing up a gear! Here you will learn and improve all the fundamental 8-count Lindy hop steps.
