Next Meetup

1950s Jive/Rock'n'Roll Class ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS - Stockwell, South London
I know a lot of you joined this group to learn to dance... so every Tuesday in Stockwell you have the opportunity ! Learn two basic moves each week. Even if you miss a week you will still progress as we have a structured lesson plan which allows you to learn and revise moves. ALSO you don't need to bring a partner and you don't need any experience at all. Everyone in the class are beginners so you will not be out of place. (We have an Improvers class for those who have more experience!) The classes are advertised elsewhere also so there will be people not on meetup attending ... so don't just go my who says they are coming here ! Classes start at 6.45, but do arrive at least 10 minutes earlier if you have any questions you want to ask before class/ or possibly get some practice in if you have had a class or two already. Classes cost £10 on the night or if you would like to pay in advance £9.50 The link for payment is here If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me ! See you on Tuesday !

What we're about

Hi Folks!

* Want to learn to dance?

* Don't have a dance partner?

* Nervous about going to a new class or vintage event by yourself?

* Don't know where to start?

* New in town and want to meet new people to socialise/dance with?


This group was initially set up specifically for those of you looking for people to meet up with to learn to swing dance, (jive, jitterbug, lindyhop, rock'n'roll ), all those lovely partner dances from the 1940s and 1950s! and expanded to those looking to meet up with like minded people to visit vintage / exhibitions and other retro events you'd like to suggest.

So, if you were little nervous of attending events and classes by yourself, you no longer have to worry! Here you can find like minded people to join you in your quest to get on the dance floor and claim your part of a thriving vintage social life!

We (the organisers of this group) aim to have a host ready to greet you at the MEETUP classes and events that we suggest, so you will always have a point of contact and someone to ask (or be asked by) to dance with!

We will try to maintain a variety of events for you to attend and hope you will too will suggest events that might be of interest.


Either way we hope you will dive right into the suggested classes and events get started in dancing away to many fun nights!

SWING DANCES include: 1940s/1950s jive, jitterbug, lindyhop, rock'n'roll, balboa, collegiate shag.
