Learn to Jive New Year’s Resolution

Always wanted to learn to dance? Your New Year’s resolution?

Here’s the perfect place to start. Our first 1940’s/50’s style jive class of 2024 will be especially aimed at complete dancing beginners with a couple of very simple moves.

No partner needed as we have the option of changing dance partners throughout the class.

Plus simple instructions in a late 1950’s/early 1960’s line dance called the Continental including written instructions for practice at home.

If you’ve not been to a dance class before wear loose comfortable everyday clothes and shoes that don’t grip the floor too much, and bring some water for hydration. If you have any medical issues please do consult your GP beforehand.

£6/£5 reduced (unemployed, retired, student or NHS staff) per person, cash only on the door.
