About Swingland

Swingland teaches swing dancing - Lindy hop (also known as "jitterbug" or "jive") and related dances (including East Coast "6-count" swing, Charleston, authentic jazz and more) - through regular weekly club nights (with classes), courses and workshops where you can learn and practise in a fun and really friendly environment.
