Something quite spectacular happened recently. A team of over 60+ of our dancers headed to the prestigious Savoy Cup in Montpellier. Many travelled just for the social dancing and/or the classes but many competed. The divisions are full of talented groups and individuals from all over Europe and beyond. You can never assume anything in such a competitive environment. London dancers were outstanding and this doesn’t just refer to the five 1st placings but to every dancer who had the courage and talent to be part of this story.
We will be having a evening where we honour our dancers on Friday June 2nd at the Bishopsgate Institute where many of these fabulous routines/performances will be performed live for our own London community. Keep the date free for a fun evening where we acknowledge our hard working and talented team. Note that this is a standard tradition and we had a great celebration when our teachers Ash & Ben placed first at the International Lindy Hop championships a few years ago. Have a read of Swing Patrol troupe life in a recent newsletter.
