Step into London’s dance world, where rhythms, movement and passion will you move. Whether you’ve always fancied dancing like you’re in a pop video or you prefer to swing with a partner, there’s a class in London to welcome you. We’ve handpicked the best dance classes in London that anyone can join.


Swing Patrol London

Forget Murder on the Dancefloor, learn to swing. Swing Patrol holds classes, workshops and social dance nights in London, Berlin and Australia. Swing Patrol London has venues across the city teaching Lindy Hop and other swing styles. You can learn as a beginner or step in at a more advanced level, even without a partner. 


Once you feel confident, there are weekly social evenings, sometimes in iconic London venues, like Wilton’s Music Hall, where there are plenty of 50s outfits, and you can swing dance to your heart’s content. It’s a lot of fun and a great way to get social. 


English National ballet classes

Did you ever dream of becoming a ballet dancer? The English National Ballet classes start with a three-week Ballet Absolute Beginner’s course at the East London studios, Mulryan Centre for Dance. This is a course for adults who still want to try ballet but haven’t yet or who haven’t done a plié at the barre for a long time. 


Discover classical ballet techniques, learn basic moves and experience the amazing benefits of this adult-friendly course where no experience is required. Lessons kick off at the barre in the amazing English National Ballet studios and wrap up with some energetic jumps to get your blood flowing. It’s a supportive and welcoming environment – and you even have real musicians playing for your class, taking your moves to the next level. There are further London ballet classes you can progress to as well.
