Lindy Circle News - 4th January 2016 Happy New Year everyone,

Swing at the Pilot restarts tomorrow. Please note change of venue from next week. Details below:

1) Swing at the Pilot - Balboa Classes & Social Dancing
2) Swing at the Pilot - Forthcoming Temporary Venue Change
3) Forthcoming Teaching Schedule


This week is the first Tuesday of the month to we're starting a new cycle for the beginners class. These beginners' classes run in a monthly cycle, with each week building on the material learnt in the previous weeks that month. Absolute beginners will therefore find it easier to start on the first Tuesday of the month, when we assume no prior knowledge at all.

Please see our web site for more details on both the beginners and intermediate classes:

Timings for the night are:

7.30 - 8.20pm Beginners Balboa class
8.30 - 9.20pm Intermediate Balboa class
9.30 - 11pm Social dancing

Price: £8 gets you either one or both classes.
FREE ENTRY for the social dancing after 9.30pm.

Venue: The Pilot, 56 Wellesley Road, Chiswick, London, W4 4BZ.

The Pilot is a lovely venue with a great atmosphere where you can relax with drinks and pub food available throughout the evening. Their function room has a nice wooden floor for dancing. There is free social dancing after 9.30pm which, as always, is open to anyone and all styles of swing dancing.

Note: We are in the separate function room building. Walk through the bar and into the rear garden to find it.
(The nearest tube station is Gunnersbury on the District line.)

Details for this night can always be found on our web Calendar:


Our venue The Pilot has now scheduled its major refurbishment during January and February. The whole pub as well as our function room will be closing completely for most of this period. We will therefore be moving to our temporary venue the Crown & Anchor while this refurbishment takes place.

We've used the Crown & Anchor before. It's less than a mile away and is convenient for tube & buses, plus free local street parking after 7pm. We will again be using the function room upstairs which has a wooden floor and nice comfortable decor. The address is; The Crown & Anchor, 374 Chiswick High Road, Chiswick, London W4 5TA (

Here are the dates/venues for the forthcoming period:

05 Jan - The Pilot
12 Jan - The Crown & Anchor

26 Jan - The Crown & Anchor
02 Feb - The Crown & Anchor
