Portsmouth Lindy Hop

Portsmouth Lindy Hop

Beginners Lindy hop classes every week in Southsea. Swing dancing is a fantastic way to meet new people, stay fit and learn about the incredible swing era.

At Portsmouth Lindy Hop we teach Lindy Hop, Charleston and East Coast Swing. Lindy hop is our main focus on Thursday evening lessons and there is a large social scene here in the Portsmouth area, making it a perfect hobby to stay fit and socialise. Beginners class starts at 7:30m but get there early so you can find somewhere to park. Intermediate class starts at 9:00 and there is plenty of time for social dancing.

Operating as usual


Hope to see you this evening at the social dance, 7:30 at the Emporium bar with Katie Cobalt Djing. :)
