25th April – Several simple and well loved strolls; the Rock’n’Roll Stroll (Revival Day), the Charleston Stroll (King of the Swingers), the New York Stroll (Candyman) and the Donna The Prima Donna Stroll. These can be seen on the following links…

2-9th May – Jitterbug Stroll Choreographed by Ryan Francois as the house stroll for Jitterbugs in London, this is now one of the most popular solo routines danced at swing events across the world.


16-23rd May – “ooh aah” Charleston Stroll (Put A Lid On It) is a perfectly adorable 1920s style Charleston routine featuring classic moves of the Charleston era. Choreographded by globally renowned Sing Lim from Singapore, our demonstration of this routine is our top viewed youtube video with over 20,000 views!

6 -13 Jun – The Shim Sham (Tain’t What You Do / Tuxedo Junction) originates from the original swing era and is the biggest globally known jazz routine. An all time classic – join over 1.5million other people in watching Frankie Manning demonstrating the routine on youtube!.

20 – 27 Jun – The Swing & Soul Stroll (Heard It Through The Grape Vine) is a soulful stroll that feels great to dance. Choreographed by US swing dancer Peter Strom, this is one of our favourites!

4 Jul – Strollin’ Party – No tuition this week, we’ll be running a mix-tape of all the strolls tunes. Even if you already know the strolls and didn’t take any of these workshops you can still pay for this one-off hour and practice all the routines.
