South West Lindy Hoppers

Lindy Hop - The Original Big Band Swing Dance

We are a group of Lindy Hop enthusiasts founded in 2004, based in the Exeter area who enjoy and promote this unique social dance for all age groups.

Formed in 2004 because there was no Savoy Style Lindy Hop in the area. We attract dancers from the whole of the South West region, holding regular Beginner's & Intermediate classes in EXETER & TOTNES as well as practice sessions, workshops, demonstrations and swing dances that include music from the Big Band era, Jump Jive and Blues.

Guest teachers have included:

Graeme and Ann (Hoppin' Mad), Ryan Francois and Jenny Thomas, Gary and Sarah Boon, Andy and Tor from Rock Bottoms, Mel and Jo Calanglang, Russell and Delores from the Jiving Lindy Hoppers, Paul and Fae and Christine from Rug-Cutters Lindy Hop. David Zilkha from Swing Dance Bristol. Velody from Manchester. Trisha Sewell from Savoy Hop Hertfordshire.

All ages and abilities are welcome. No need to bring a partner. Meet like minded dancers in helpful and friendly surroundings.
