Swing in the sky

Posted on July 17, 2019

Swing Patrol and the crew at the Brighton BAi360 recently teamed up for swing dancing in the sky. Scott Cupit, director of Swing Patrol, said: “Our free dance at the BAi360 is one of the highlights of the year for the Swing Patrol Brighton dancers as not only is it a unique chance to dance more than 450 feet above the ground it’s also a spectacular view of Brighton.

“The dancers were torn between dancing and enjoying the incredible views from the Pod. It was a great immersive session as the dancing then continued next to the beach for the rest of the morning. A massive thanks to the fabulous BAi360 crew who were so supportive of this annual event, which received extraordinary coverage with Deborah Meaden tweeting about it a few times.”
