We welcome back your teachers Brian and Sue who are life-long dancers, having started their dancing careers in their teens. They represented the UK at Amateur Ballroom Dance. Since retiring from ballroom competitions, they have taught many dance styles over the years. They started swing dancing 30 years ago, teaching both Lindy Hop and Balboa. For the last 15 years, they've focused entirely on Balboa, teaching in the UK, and attending dance camps worldwide to train with the very best in the world. They bring the joy of Balboa to all through their clear and insightful classes.
Patcham Memorial Hall venue
The Hall is a white wooden building, tucked next to Patcham House School, half way along on the west side of Old London Road, parallel to the A23. There is lots of free parking, though we are in a residential area, so please take that into account.
Just off the A23 as it enters the City of Brighton and Hove, and near the southbound exits from the A27 Worthing to Lewes bypass.
Local bus 5A from Brighton city centre stops right outside, and just up the road by the Co-operative shop. It's the terminus for the 56 from London Road shops. Longer-distance buses 17, 33, 40, 270 and others from Haywards Heath, Horsham, Gatwick, and other places north of Brighton stop on the main London Road, near the Black Lion / Miller and Carter pub, and at the south end of Old London Road.
To get here by train, come to Preston Park Station, direct from Brighton, and stations to/from London. It is about a 15 minute walk north. The 5A and out-of-town buses pass near the station, and are quite frequent.
