The Jive Aces Return
The Swing Dance Company last hosted The Jive Aces at their Xmas Swinging Ball 2014. The UK’s No.1 Jive and Swing band return to The Swing Dance Company for the first time since our 2017 Valentines Ball. Previously they became “Britain’s Got Talent” semi-finalists and played prestigious venues including Buckingham Palace, The Royal Albert Hall and Hyde Park.
The Jive Aces helped forge the reputation of our events in our early years. The adorable Aces performed at 3 consecutive Xmas Swinging Balls for the The Swing Dance Company in 2005, 2006 and 2007.
Big name performers such as Mike Sanchez, Si Cranstoun, King Pleasure and The Biscuit Boys and The Regular Joes have graced our stage. We’re delighted that The Jive Aces were keen to return to The Swing Dance Company this year.
