Please do contact Maxine if you are interested in SWINGDYHOP at your primary school.  There are two ways to host SWINGDYHOP in your school.  As a club or as a Curriculum Led Programme on the timetable.  Please do drop me a line at to discuss.

SWINGDYHOP for Schools

Running in conjunction with the KS2 History curriculum, SWINGDYHOP offers a visiting company experience, where students will learn a Swing/Lindy Hop routine, as danced during WWII and before.  This period was not only such an important part of history but a time of great style, fashion, music and dance. 

SWINGDYHOP offers an insight into this time, along with accompanying curriculum notes, to provide a comprehensive and informed approach to teaching students about this period.  For those of you interested in SWINGDYHOP visiting your school, please do feel free to drop me a line with any questions.

Sessions are run by Maxine who holds full insurance, an enhanced portable DBS check, certification in primary school dance from the Royal Academy of Dance and a degree in Theatre Arts. She has been dancing, teaching and performing Swing and Lindy Hop for over 20 years.  To book SWINGDYHOP at your school please email:

SWINGDYHOP also has limited space left for your school to house a regular weekly lunchtime club.  Please do get in touch to discuss bringing SWINGDYHOP weekly dance classes to your child's primary school or to book the new virtual Curriculum Led Programme.
