square-pink-swingPink Swing, London’s first LGBT swing dance club, will be offering classes on Monday evenings from March 3 at the Tea House Theatre in Vauxhall.

Pink Swing caters for those who want to learn how to swing dance, without having to conform to traditional dancefloor roles. Straight people are also welcome: the aim is to create a relaxed and friendly atmosphere where everyone can learn and share the joy of dance together.

Pink Swing will be holding mixed lindy hop and Balboa classes at the popular Tea House Theatre in Vauxhall, an old Victorian pub that opened in 1886 on the site of Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens.

Classes begin on March 3 and will be run in six-week courses. The teachers are Eleanor Ellis and Kim Sheard, well-known dancers in the London swing scene. All classes will be followed by vintage music and social dancing for the rest of the night.

For more information, visit, email, or call Eleanor on 07981 258 433‬‬.
