About Cala Jazz

CALA Jazz is a not for profit organisation, born after the separation of London Throwdown and Swing Patrol.

The reason for this new organisation is the need for a focused effort to re-centre the lindy hop and jazz dances communities towards values aligned with the true colours of jazz art forms.

At CALA Jazz, we recognise the work that needs to be done to de-colonise and reshape the environment in a way that is accessible to all.

For these reasons, we have stipulated a statement of intents and values that can be found below.
