Swing Patrol – All Levels Class @ Ground Floor
Nov 21 @ 8:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Join Christoper and Celia for a lesson or two in Swing Dancing. What is Swing Dancing? It’s a collection of dances from the 1920s-1940s including Lindy hop and Charleston. Read more about it here.

When?
Level 1 – Absolute Beginners c
lass | 7.30pm-8.30pm (EXCEPT the 3rd Thursday of every month)
These classes are for new dancers and there is no experience required. We go over the basics every week and then throw in some new moves to get you dancing in no time. This class is drop-in, so you don’t need to book in advance and you don’t need to bring a partner.

Level 2 – Intermediate class | 8.30pm-9.30pm
Build on your Lindy hop and Charleston basics in this class! You have learned some basic moves, but seek a deeper understanding of style and technique. This class will improve your fundamentals in swing. The intermediate class usually takes the same footwork that was used in the beginners class, but adds on slightly harder moves with a focus on some technique and finer details.

Social Dancing | 9.30pm – 11pm
The first Thursday of every month, we have our Jumping’ at the Palace social dance after two classes (7.30-9.30pm). It’s completely free for anyone attending a class that evening, otherwise a bargain £2 entry to support the library. Everyone’s welcome! Check out all the details here. On all the other weeks we all head to the pub together after class.

The 3rd Thursday of every month
On the third Thursday of each month we hold a special all-levels class at 8.30 pm, suitable for beginners and more experienced dancers alike. This might for be a taster class in another swing dance style such as Balboa, Blues or Solo Jazz, or a fun and easy Lindy hop routine.  It’s a great chance to meet your fellow students from both classes and get to know your Crystal Palace swing dance community!

Palace Acappella Choir, Tuesdays 7-8.30pm UNLH cafe

Everyone welcome, no auditions, no experience needed, just enthusiasm!

After an epic first term opening Crystal Palace Festival, backing rap artist Jay Snaggz and performing in local shops and Fetes, Palace Acappella Choir is back for Round 2!

And it’s not too late to get involved! Join us any Tuesday 7pm from 3rd September for a free taster session.

We sing all kinds of music – pop, musical theatre, jazz, classical, world music, folk and more – everyone is welcome and there is no requirement to read music.

We sing ‘a cappella’ – without instrumental accompaniment (usually!) – and create all the harmonies just with our voices. It’s a lot easier than it sounds and a great way to have fun and improve your singing and musical ear. We tend to finish each session with a social pub trip so it’s also a great way to make new local friends!
