Welcome to Down Town Blues (District Swing)
One of the oldest pubs in Richmond and situated right on The Green, this lovely space is perfect for our Swing & Blues dance classes. Come for a class and then stay for some lovely grub!
What Do We Teach?
We teach both Swing AND Blues dancing. Swing dancing is a collection of different styles from the 1920s-1940s, including the Lindy Hop and Charleston. Blues is a more expressive and individualistic style and can be danced to a wider genre of music.
