Tamsin and Joe will take you through the foundations of the vintage dance, the Lindy Hop, with practice time at the end for honing your moves. We'll be in a beautiful room with a partially-sprung dance floor in the Hubnub centre.

We very much encourage men and women to try whichever role they would like to! Traditionally it is the male who leads and the female who follows, but with swing dancing you will see many people exchanging roles. 
 

Your teachers


Joe from Swing Motion Bath and Swing Riot Bristol


Joe is a dedicated and experienced dancer, teaching weekly lindy hop/swing dance classes in Bristol and Bath. He also DJs and co-organises a monthly swing dance social night in Bristol.  

He first fell in love with the dance in 2010 after attending a taster class. "I'd always loved early rock n roll music and so originally thought I'd give jive dance a go until a friend suggested I try swing. I was hooked straight away by how fun, varied and playful it is! Swing music suddenly came alive too and made so much more sense once I started partner dancing to it. That's what it's made for!" Joe still enjoys developing his dancing through attending workshops and dance camps in the UK and abroad, bringing back what he's learnt to share in his classes.
