The History of The Swing Era (dance classes – not the era itself!)
The Swing Era was founded by Martyn Nelson. Once he had found swing dancing in 2008 there was no turning back…
Looking back at his dance journey Martyn has loved every second of it. He decided that “if everyone danced the world would be a better place, everybody should experience the gift of dance at least once in their lives.”
His passion made the decision to set up The Swing Era an easy one!
After being inspired by the scenes in other cities he now wants to bring that dancing and social culture to Birmingham.
Martyn’s dream is to further grow the Lindy Hop community in his home town of Birmingham and to promote not only dancing, but dancing to live music as well. “There is nothing better than dancing to live music”.
