Swing Patrol

The Swing Patrol team are back for another season of free open air dance events under the Amphitheatre Canopy on Bishops Square.

Swing dancing encompasses a varied range of styles danced to big band swing music. The mother of Swing dances is the Lindy Hop, nicknamed the Jitterbug for its bouncy, infectious energy.

This is the core dance taught by Swing Patrol, but they also incorporate other vintage dances from the Swing family such as Balboa, Charleston, Blues and Solo Jazz.

All ages and abilities are welcome and best of all attendance is free!

** This is an outdoor event held in an open public space. There are no lockers or changing rooms provided so please be mindful of any personal belongings you may bring with you**
