Dance Teachers

Cheltenham Swing Dance

Matt and Jane teach weekly classes for Cheltenham Swing Dance. They absolutely love all swing dances, with Lindy Hop being their favourite. They thoroughly enjoy seeing dancers in their classes leave with something new and fun to play with on the social dance floor.

Matt and Jane say, “We are very lucky to have attended many Lindy training camps and have brought back tips, techniques and teaching methods that we found really improved our enjoyment of the dance. We would absolutely love to share this with as many dancers as we can. We want everyone to fall in love with Lindy Hop!”
