"I just wanted to say how much I’m enjoying the Webb membership. It’s opened a new Swing World for me! It’s lovely being able to dip in and out and there’s so much choice and variety. Being able to really learn a routine properly and going back over tricky parts is invaluable. I’m not lucky enough to be able to attend your classes in person as the distance is too far but being able to access all the classes makes all the difference...."
"SwingdanceUK has been a great addition to my dance practice. It was perfect and exactly what I needed for both solo practice and with a partner. Lots of ways for beginners to start and enough to keep regulars challenged. Highly recommend for anyone looking for home practice."

What is Swing Notes?
Swing Notes is a weekly article where Simon, who started Swing dancing in 1982, muses about life in the swing world, commentates on what’s going on and more often than not, the why & how you can get the most out of your dancing.
Diving into the annals of history & traditions that have been handed down to him, the aim is to be educational, thought-provoking & occasionally controversial, sharing his personal thoughts on the dance, music, history & today’s swing dance scene.
