Swing City

Swing City Norwich is a not-for-profit organisation run by a group of people dedicated to promoting Lindy Hop and other Swing Dances in Norwich and the surrounding area.

The Team

The Swing City Teachers have many years of experience in teaching various styles of swing dancing. 

History of Swing City

It all started back in 1995 when Rob moved up to Norfolk from London and brought Lindy Hop to Norwich where he taught it for several years with Debbie before "semi-retiring" from dancing to concentrate on family and business.


Enter left stage Al and Linda (and what an entrance) to take up the flame of Lindy Hop and keep it burning brightly. With regular classes and events in Norfolk and Suffolk and by forging strong links with other Lindy Hop teachers in the UK they became known as the people to learn authentic Lindy Hop from in East Anglia.


Around 2008, Matt and Haidee set up the concept of the Swing City Collective to promote a wider concept of swing dance within Norwich and brought to the mix their stylish version of Jump Jive.


In 2008 we all finally came back together and decided to join forces to collectively teach Swing Dance in Norwich, bringing together a mix of eclectic styles and experience, including that from occasional and guest teachers to offer to people wanting to learning the original style of jive.
