Learn Lindy Hop With Lynn and Paul
(South West Swing disclaimer)

Learn Lindy Hop With Lynn and Paul photoLynn and Paul Thornton have been dancing Lindy Hop, as well as modern jive, for many years in the south west region and are known for their distinct style of swing jive dancing.

Paul regularly DJs as "Zoot" Thornton of South West Swing for jive and swing dances and Lynn sings in several bands, including her own swing jive band called Just Misbehavin'.

They now run regular workshops in beginners / improvers lindy hop where you can learn the basics of this great swing dance in a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere. All workshops start at beginners level, but build to incorporate intermediate moves over the afternoon and are also suitable for anyone who has other dance experience and wants to expand their lindy / swing jive move repertoire.

Learn Lindy Hop With South West Swing Workshops are held most months (see forthcoming events below), except for a break over summer (normally during July and August), and run from 1:45pm to 5.30pm at Clyst St George Parish Hall, Woodbury Road, Clyst St George, Near Exeter (Venue Map). They cost £10 per person on the day for the whole afternoon session, or £9 per session in advance when paid as a 4 or 5 / 5 or 6 session block. Tea, coffee, biscuits, cake and fruit is included in the price. Pre-booking for individual workshops is essential to ensure a place.

Private lesson options are also available - please enquire for full details.
