Now headed by Angeline Keightley, 6th Street Swing was originally started in 2011 by Glenn and Claire.

Having an interest in 1940’s fashion and the music of the Swing Era, Angeline began learning to Swing Dance with Glenn and Claire in 2013. ¬†From here her interest grew and not wanting to let Swing Dancing disappear from Darlington she took on the teaching in 2015 and 6th Street Swing has grown to have 3 lessons to choose from each week.
