SwingJive Practice Nights

If you want space to dance with your partner and have an instructor on-hand but you don't want to learn new material or you can't commit to a course.

Feature Events

Several times each year The Swing Dance Company hosts feature events, including live music from the best bands across the UK & Europe.

All feature events are subject to review due to government guidance.

We're not selling tickets for any events currently, although we have numerous pre-booked events that are displayed here.

The longest established Swing Dance Co live music events have been running for nearly 20 years at Portsmouth's Admiral Lord Nelson School and attract the best dancers from across the South.

Similar events have launched in Dorset recently, with Weymouth Pavilion hosting similar live music events.
