Short and friendly dance classes taught in a relaxed way you can join any week, with one-to-one advice to help you learn at your own pace. Beginners means beginners, if you’ve never danced before this is the class for you!
Our teacher Andrew (DJ Reverend Boogie) has 25 years experience teaching 1940’s/50’s style Jive and also teaches a selection of other swing dances (Collegiate Shag, Heel Shag, Charleston etc). He DJs at vintage clubs, events, festivals and weekenders both in the UK and abroad, and has a real love and passion for the era.
No need to come with a partner, wear loose comfortable clothing and shoes that don’t grip the floor too much, be sure to stay hydrated and check with your GP if you have any medical concerns. You will be dancing with partners so please remember personal hygiene.
