Swinging Spring Ball 2023 - The Biggest Swing Dance Co Event of the year... so far!

Join us on Saturday 25th March as we gather for the Swinging Spring Ball 2023 at Barton Hall Function Suite, Horndean. Featuring an amazing live band that is perfect to dance to, this could be the best event of the decade so far!

Fun and Friendly Night For All At The Swinging Spring Ball 2023

Swinging Balls are open to all, so you're sure to have a great night whether you come on your own, with a partner, or with friends. Our celebrated Swinging Balls have been running for 20 years. They have built a splendid reputation, attracting the UK's finest jive and swing bands along with huge attendances.

Change of Band for Swinging Spring Ball 2023 (updated 31st Jan 2023)

Sadly, Miss Annie and The Midnight Shift will be unable to perform for us at this event due to illness. Miss Annie and her band were the advertised feature band until 31st January. We're delighted to announce that another Bournemouth-based band, The Boogie Bumpers have agreed to stand in.

Check out The Boogie Bumpers in action...

The Boogie Bumpers are an exciting 7-piece swing and jive band that loves to bring the jump-blues sounds of Louis Prima and Louis Jordan to its audiences, as well as the smoother swinging Sinatra-style sounds. They might also throw in some post-modern swing in the style of Postmodern Jukebox!

Several of the band played with The Regular Joes, who were one of The Swing Dance Company's most popular bands before their breakup.

Other big-name performers such as The Jive Aces, Mike Sanchez, Si Cranstoun, King Pleasure and The Biscuit Boys, The Regular Joes and The Swing Commanders have graced our stage over the years. We're delighted to welcome The Boogie Bumpers to The Swing Dance Company for the first time this year.

Just 15 minutes north of our previous venue and similar in size and layout, Barton Hall is a dedicated function suite at Horndean Technology College, Horndean, just 5 minutes from the A3. There is ample parking on-site, a welcoming reception area, a huge dance floor and a licenced bar.
