Dances:

Dance/practice nights are the perfect opportunity to get up and have a go at the moves you have learnt in class.  3 hours of jive and swing music to get your feet tapping.  Plenty of time to get those moves strung together, before you know it you will be dancing to a whole track.  A chance to meet people from other classes in a fun and friendly atmosphere.  All jive and swing styles welcome.

Dance Etiquette:

A few tips on dance etiquette to make your evening go with a swing!

  • Dance floors can be dangerous. Please consider other dancers and look to make sure there is a space to send your ladies into. Ladies, always look out for your men.
  • Personal hygiene is of the utmost importance as dancing is a 'close quarter combat sport' . Bring a spare shirt, towel and deodorant to wipe away those beads of sweat.
  • Please report any spilled drinks. Always walk around the dance floor when returning from the bar, even if the floor is empty.
  • At a social dance DO NOT execute air steps. It's dangerous and should be kept for cabaret.
  • Try not to wear sharp things such as rings, watches, bracelets and stiletto heels. All of which can be painful if snagged.
