If you want to learn the art of West Coast Swing dancing from a professional then sign up to our weekly classes with Filipe de Barros on April 28, May 5 and 12 from 8pm.

Filipe, who is a dance teacher and London 2012 Olympic opening ceremony performer, will be teaching two different types of class on the night.

At 8pm until 8.45pm he will be hosting a beginner’s class and will teach people the very basics of swing dancing. After a 15 minute freestyle practice break he will be teaching an improver/intermediate dance class from 9pm until 9.45pm.

From 9.45pm until 11pm there will be a dance social where everyone can practice their West Coast Swing, catch up with friends or make new ones. Filipe will also be DJing during the social.

There is a £5 special entry price for people on April 28, which includes entry to both classes and the social dance from 9.45pm.

Entry for the May 5 and 12 classes will cost £8 per person and will include both classes and entry to the social dance.

Anyone wishing to attend the dance social only will need to pay £5.

London and Surrey-based Filipe has completed a Professional Dance Instructor’s Association course in West Coast Swing. The course was taught by professional dancer Michael Keihm and Felipe is among the first in the UK to achieve intermediate status.

Filipe started dancing at the age of 16 and trained and danced at the London 2012 Olympics opening ceremony.
