New term of 10 Week courses at Bay House School, Gosport on Mondays running weekly!
Lindy Hop is the original swing dance and is the most important influence on our SwingJive Courses, you can learn how to Lindy Hop on this course! Our SwingJive courses were originally designed as a pathway for non-dancers to reach a level where they could comfortably enjoy learning Lindy Hop, which is a technically more demanding dance style.
Everybody is welcome to join this course, there is no pre-requisite. However Lindy Hop is a more challenging style of dance than SwingJive, so we would recommend that those with no previous experience join our Absolute Beginners SwingJive courses, which runs in the same hall at the earlier time, details on this link. This Lindy Hop course would suit those people who have either experience in other dance styles, or have completed at least 2 of our SwingJive courses.
Our SwingJive Courses will have introduced participants to some elements of Lindy Hop, including Charleston and 6-beat rhythm, so we will show you how to integrate Swing Jive and Lindy Hop.
Maximum of 30 people per course, available on a first-come first-serve basis. Early Booking rates at £70 and £75. Full price £80 per person per course.

Venue: Gosport, Bay House School
Overlooking the Solent, in one of Gosport’s most beautiful corners, you’ll find Bay House School. This outstanding school is situated in one of the most historic and iconic buildings in Alverstoke.
The school has numerous spaces to accommodate our lessons, both in the original site as well as the sparkly new Sports Complex.
New Sports Complex
Unless stated otherwise, our 10 week courses lessons take place in the Beacon Arts Centre in the new Sports Complex.
Dance Studio and Beacon Arts Centre
The Sports Complex is on the opposite side of Gomer Road from the main school site, so it’s best to park in one of the public car parks on Stokes Bay Road (No. 2 Battery East Car Park, PO12 2QU, is closest and free in the evenings) and then walk up. Once inside the building, walk through the foyer, turn right down the corridor and then left at the end. We’re in the Dance Studio on the right hand side. Alternatively, the Beacon Arts Centre is directly ahead.
Main School Site – Main Hall, Lower Hall & Gym
On occasions lessons also run on the main school site, we have used the Main Hall, Lower Hall and Gym in the past. For these spaces please park in the main school car park and enter the site through main school reception. Turn left at reception and follow the corridor until reaching the Main Hall (right) or Lower Hall (left).
