Swing out!

Learn to dance - workshops


Saturday, 24 Nov, 11.30am - 3.30pm

Workshop - Lindy hop for improvers/intermediates

The Bedford, 77 Bedford Hill, Balham, London SW12 9HD : www.thebedford.co.uk

Consolidate your basics and expand your repertoire! Advance booking required.

You may take the morning session, the afternoon session or both.

Teachers: Martin and Ruth

11.30am - 1.00pm Improve/enhance your Swing Out

First and foremost this will be about improving your confidence with the essential basics of Swing Out, Lindy Turn and Circle. We will add some simple variations but mostly concentrate on really mastering these - and associated - moves. You need to know what they are but might not feel comfortable leading or following them on the social dance floor.

1.00pm - 2.00pm Lunch break

We break for lunch at 1pm. Lunch is not included but most people eat downstairs in the venue or there are plenty of alternatives in the local area.

2.00pm - 3.30pm Lindy hop Charleston variations

Here we will cover lots of fun Lindy hop Charleston steps - all essential knowledge! Again we will spend time really working on technique and style - and how to link moves and mini-routines together.


You've done some 6-count and are reasonably comfortable with that. You've learnt a bit of 8-count (Swing out etc) and some partnered Lindy hop Charleston but struggle to incorporate it - or just want to build your confidence and/or improve your technique.

The Exhibit is at 12 Balham Station Road, Balham, London SW12 9SG.

By tube - Northern Line to Balham, 1 minute walk. Turn right out of the station and walk up Balham Station Road. The Exhibit is on your left next to the Sainsbury's car park.

By train - Balham (10 minutes to Waterloo or Victoria via Clapham Junction), 1 minute walk as for tube.

By bus - bus routes 315 (Bedford Hill), 355, 249 or 155.

By car - just off the South Circular (A205), Balham is easily accessible by car from all directions. There is plenty of parking in local streets, either metered or some free during the day and most free after 6.30pm - or use the Sainsbury's car park (2 hours max during the day, free all evening).
