We now run two fun and energetic classes every week. We first have a beginner-friendly class at 19:00 which is followed by our improver class, swinging out from 20:15. Come learn the joyful dances of the 1920′s, 30's and 40′s!
How our classes work and what we teach:
7:00pm – Level 1: Beginner-friendly swing dancing – start any time - £10 for the hour! We teach from the absolute basics each week – you don’t need any experience, or a partner, just turn up ready for an hour of fun!
8:15pm – Level 1.5 – £10, or £5 if you do level 1 first.
This class assumes knowledge of the basic rhythms covered in our level one class & heads into more technically challenging content that aims to really push your dancing, while also embracing the joy of Lindy Hop! We will also be using this class to learn some classic solo routines, so look out for that on our class plan (http://www.swingpatrol.co.uk/camden-class-plan/) and updates on our Facebook page!
What is the Lindy hop?
Lindy hop is the original form of swing dancing that we teach in our classes. It was created and danced to the sounds of big band jazz from the 1920's, 30's and 40's. It is a unique partner dance for anyone and everyone and can be danced to all tempo's - fast, slow and anything in between.
The most famous and extreme footage of swing dancing to date is the Helzapoppin' clip - check it out - Amazing!
To really know what the lindy hop is you will have to come and try it out for yourself, we look forward to seeing you next Monday 7pm at our beautiful venue. All welcome! :)

We teach with an original technique, using modern teaching tools to produce happy, shiny, dancy people. We want our students to enjoy tango and we'll do everything we can to make you feel at home.
Ok, so what is tango apart from a fizzy, orange drink?
In short, tango is: a dance of South American origin, danced by couples in a social setting. In long, it is emotional, poetic, disciplined, physical, unpredictable, addictive, passionate, authentic, spiritual and that's only the short of the long of it. So, if you're looking for something involving with a ton of character and loads to offer, Argentine tango is for you.
Tango attracts a whole melting pot of people, some who look like they were bred for it and some who might come as a pleasant surprise: so don't fret if you don't look like you're straight out of Buenos Aires. And, if you feel you have as much natural flair as Silvio Berlusconi has trouser control, that's fine too. Everyone's got to start somewhere. And starting is fun!
A good place (we like to think) is www.tanguito.co.uk where you can find more information about Tanguito, our classes and what we do. You can also learn more about tango itself. Check it out and see if it sounds like it might be your cup of Malbec, then come in and see us. We'd love to meet you.
Start here. We're in it for the long run.
B-Better is a Hiphop company which seeks to educate and empower through classes, workshops, public appearances and events. Our primary medium for this is through dance.
'Hiphop' is a culture born in the 70's, and is built around a few key ideologies that are often 'reframed' or completely ignored by the world media. Mysoginistic rap lyrics and brash, materialistic behaviour are not the foundations on which Hiphop culture is built, but ACTUALLY, 'Peace, Love Unity & Having Fun'. At B-Better we strive to re-educate the general public on the true essence of hip-hop through its artforms.
If you are feeling the vision, please invite a friend, read on and visit our website http://b-better.org.uk :o)

In a room, designed to challenge your mind, creativity and logic, you need to work together with your team mates to get out in time. Using and combining the objects that can be found inside the room it takes the skills and thinking of the whole group to find the way out.
