The '20s are about to come roaring back so get ready to party with some sumptuous swing dancing. Lindy Hop came from the cultural mix of Harlem’s ballrooms and decided to stick around which is great for each generation that discovers it all around the world. This amazing free-style partner dance fits with all types and tempos of swinging music.
Learn to Lindy Hop with a couple who have lived together in swing dance for well over 20 years, having been the first in Reading to promote the revival of this style back in 1994. Brought together by their mutual love of dance they have traveled widely to learn from many of the very best swing dance teachers and love to share their passion and insight with those taking their first steps into this world of fun.
