Welcome!

If you landed here you’ve heard about our amazing Absolute Beginners Jive Course, including a free trial class. Look through the content below to find out what to expect.

Absolute Beginners SwingJive Course

The Absolute Beginners SwingJive Course is designed for you if you have never done any jive or swing dance before. In fact, most new starters have never done any kind of dance class at all. These courses are a perfect starting point for a weekly adult, evening partner dance class and they lead into an exciting, fun and sociable new world. You’ll stay with the partner you bring throughout the course.

“Hi, Just wanted to say how much my husband and I enjoyed our first dance session last night and what a fun night we had and to thank you.” Kind Regards, Angela, Farnham

“Bob and Bridgette are very good and patient teachers. They made the course fun and gave lots of encouragement. We thought the method of teaching, concentrating on and perfecting one move at a time, worked.” (Anita & Mike, Farnborough)

“The best thing I ever did was to learn to swing jive, I just love it. Thank you for all the great courses, keep up the good work.” Denise, Fareham

Limited Spaces with COVID-safe Venue Based Classes… or Learn Online!

Dancing provides a wide range of physical and mental health benefits. Our COVID-safe plan means we have just a limited number of spaces, and venue-based learning will be supported by free online, pre-recorded on-demand learning. Our courses are already designed so that you stay with your partner throughout. If venue-based learning doesn’t suit you, then join our online school to learn exactly the same content anywhere in the world!

See What You Can Learn on The Free Trial

Whether you attend one of our venue based classes, or trial online, you should be able to dance the following moves by the end of our free trial class.

Open To All Adult Ages and Levels of Fitness

As long as you can walk you should be able to take part. The beauty of this style of dancing is that you can push yourself to whatever energy level you are comfortable with. Dancing is a great form of exercise, you’ll be having so much fun that you won’t notice all those calories you are burning!

Who Typically Attends Venue-Based Classes?

Age ranges vary wildly, from our minimum of 18*-80. Our classes are particularly popular with couples keen to share a hobby and spend quality time together. This covers both young professionals as well as couples rebuilding a fun social life, perhaps after years of child-rearing. We also see lots of mother/daughter, sister/sister, girl/girl, boy/boy & girl/boy friend pairings.

Often reluctant husbands are dragged along by enthusiastic wives, yet by the end of the free trial, it is the gents who can’t wait to sign up for the course.

Book Your Free Trial Space in Advance with a Dance Partner

When joining our venue-based classes, please ensure you are attending with a dance partner. We set a 2 person minimum booking for our location-based courses so please book both places at the same time using our online booking system. Simply book your spaces on our free trial class at the class that suits you best. Our system will send a registration email to confirm the venue, date and time details – please check your spam filter if these don’t arrive in your inbox within an hour of booking.

Some people are lucky enough to find a dance partner easily. For those without an obvious dance partner, asking within their own network of friends, family, colleagues and neighbours can reveal somebody who is interested to give the class a go.

Get a Head Start!

If you would like to get a head start before attending a trial, you can take our online free trial, which contains the same content, or even book a private lesson first before your trial class, either in-person or online!

What to Expect on Free Trial Day

Arrive just before the advertised start time for your lesson so the teachers can greet you. Groups are typically between 12 and 30 people, everybody is an absolute beginner so everybody will be experiencing similar nerves and excitement. Once it’s time to start we do a gentle warm-up and teach a couple of simple moves which you can dance on a loop. Before the end of the session, the teachers will demonstrate all the moves coming up on the course.

Paying For The Course

Most people pay for the full course directly at the end of the beginners’ trial session. To make our admin and planning easier we always offer a discounted price if you pay on or before the night of your trial. If you wait until the following day or week the full price is charged.

If you are committed to joining the course regardless of the free trial on the first week you can pay in advance via the relevant course booking page. Payment secures your place on the course.

See What You Can Learn on The Full Course

Building Your Abilities Week-By-Week

The Absolute Beginners SwingJive Course continues on the same day, time and place for 9 further one hour sessions after the free trial week. The course builds week by week, recapping the move from the previous lesson as part of the standard format, and drawing on moves from earlier in the term as you start to build sequences.

For this reason, we don’t want any participants to get left behind, so we are looking for people who can commit to attending most weeks (or can catch up via online learning). This ensures a higher quality learning experience for the whole group. For this reason, we only accept payment for the full course. Most customers understand the benefit of attending every week and pre-payment is a great incentive.

Each evening we run 2 or 3 x 1-hour classes. There is normally a 15-minute handover between classes. During this interval, (either before or after your lesson) we will leave music running, you are welcome to practice and chat with the team.

Beyond Absolute Beginners

Once you’ve completed the Absolute Beginner SwingJive Course, you’ll be able to follow on to the natural continuation course, either Intermediate Yellow or Intermediate Green, which can be taken in either order. Teachers will demonstrate moves for the continuation course, or you can view them on this link. There are a series of 6 x 10-week courses, each progressing along a pathway that you can follow, explained on this link.

You’ll Love The Music

You’ll recognise most of the music we play. At the beginner level we use big songs from big artists of the swing and rock’n’roll eras of the 1940s, 50s and 60s.

As you progress to higher levels we’ll introduce you to more amazing music for dancing, some you may not have heard before! This includes original music from current jive, swing and rock’n’roll bands and less well-known retro music too.

Check out some of the typical music we use on this Spotify playlist below!

Can’t Make Free Trial Day?

As location-based courses run over a set 10 week period, the free trial evening is one 1 specific date each term for each beginners course. If you are unable to attend that date then other options could be open to you:

  • Take an online free trial – simply click on this link and take a trial on-demand
  • Take a “late” free trial on Week 2 – use the “Free Trial Wk2” ticket option when booking your preferred course
  • Take a free trial an alternative venue – book your free trial at the alternative venue and notify us of the switch when paying

Try Before You Buy

Book a free trial for the first week of the course, then return here to pay your course fee after the lesson.

£10pp Discount For Booking Directly After Your Free Trial

Pay for the course by 11.55pm on the evening of the Week 1 free trial date to get an extra £10 per person off the course fee, compared to the standard rate.

…Or Book The Full Course In Advance

If you don’t need a free trial, you can book and pay on any date before the first lesson at our discounted rate. As the first lesson of the course is the free trial, you don’t need to book a free trial when paying in advance.

Can’t Make The Free Trial At This Venue?

If you can’t attend the first week you can simply take our online, on-demand free trial at a time that suits you instead. Click this link to enrol in the online free trial.

You’ll still be able to book and pay the course fee for classes at your local venue on this page. Make sure you return here to book for your local venue, as paying for the online-only course won’t register you at a local venue.

You can also take a trial and pay at an alternative venue, then transfer to your preferred venue subject to availability. A full list of locations with free trials can be found on this link.

Join Up To Session 3

After the free trial, you’ll need to pay the course fee before attending again. You can pay to join anytime up to the 3rd session, but the standard course fee applies regardless of how many sessions you attend in total. We recommend that you take our online free trial if you miss the free trial at your local venue.

Extra Lessons Free!

All paying participants can benefit from free access to the full course online, free catch-up lessons at alternative venues and a 12-month free repeat guarantee, meaning you have a massage range of opportunities to learn the content on our Absolute Beginners course.

The Absolute Beginners SwingJive Course is designed for you if you have never done any jive or swing dance before. In fact, most new starters have never done any kind of dance class at all. These courses are a perfect starting point for a weekly adult, evening partner dance class and they lead into an exciting, fun and sociable new world. You’ll stay with the partner you bring throughout the course.

“Hi, Just wanted to say how much my husband and I enjoyed our first dance session last night and what a fun night we had and to thank you.” Kind Regards, Angela, Farnham

“Bob and Bridgette are very good and patient teachers. They made the course fun and gave lots of encouragement. We thought the method of teaching, concentrating on and perfecting one move at a time, worked.” (Anita & Mike, Farnborough)

“The best thing I ever did was to learn to swing jive, I just love it. Thank you for all the great courses, keep up the good work.” Denise, Fareham

Limited Spaces with COVID-safe Venue Based Classes… or Learn Online!

Dancing provides a wide range of physical and mental health benefits. Our COVID-safe plan means we have just a limited number of spaces, and venue-based learning will be supported by free online, pre-recorded on-demand learning. Our courses are already designed so that you stay with your partner throughout. If venue-based learning doesn’t suit you, then join our online school to learn exactly the same content anywhere in the world!

See What You Can Learn on The Free Trial

Whether you attend one of our venue based classes, or trial online, you should be able to dance the following moves by the end of our free trial class.

Open To All Adult Ages and Levels of Fitness

As long as you can walk you should be able to take part. The beauty of this style of dancing is that you can push yourself to whatever energy level you are comfortable with. Dancing is a great form of exercise, you’ll be having so much fun that you won’t notice all those calories you are burning!

Who Typically Attends Venue-Based Classes?

Age ranges vary wildly, from our minimum of 18*-80. Our classes are particularly popular with couples keen to share a hobby and spend quality time together. This covers both young professionals as well as couples rebuilding a fun social life, perhaps after years of child-rearing. We also see lots of mother/daughter, sister/sister, girl/girl, boy/boy & girl/boy friend pairings.

Often reluctant husbands are dragged along by enthusiastic wives, yet by the end of the free trial, it is the gents who can’t wait to sign up for the course.

Book Your Free Trial Space in Advance with a Dance Partner

When joining our venue-based classes, please ensure you are attending with a dance partner. We set a 2 person minimum booking for our location-based courses so please book both places at the same time using our online booking system. Simply book your spaces on our free trial class at the class that suits you best. Our system will send a registration email to confirm the venue, date and time details – please check your spam filter if these don’t arrive in your inbox within an hour of booking.

Some people are lucky enough to find a dance partner easily. For those without an obvious dance partner, asking within their own network of friends, family, colleagues and neighbours can reveal somebody who is interested to give the class a go.

Get a Head Start!

If you would like to get a head start before attending a trial, you can take our online free trial, which contains the same content, or even book a private lesson first before your trial class, either in-person or online!

What to Expect on Free Trial Day

Arrive just before the advertised start time for your lesson so the teachers can greet you. Groups are typically between 12 and 30 people, everybody is an absolute beginner so everybody will be experiencing similar nerves and excitement. Once it’s time to start we do a gentle warm-up and teach a couple of simple moves which you can dance on a loop. Before the end of the session, the teachers will demonstrate all the moves coming up on the course.

Paying For The Course

Most people pay for the full course directly at the end of the beginners’ trial session. To make our admin and planning easier we always offer a discounted price if you pay on or before the night of your trial. If you wait until the following day or week the full price is charged.

If you are committed to joining the course regardless of the free trial on the first week you can pay in advance via the relevant course booking page. Payment secures your place on the course.

See What You Can Learn on The Full Course

Building Your Abilities Week-By-Week

The Absolute Beginners SwingJive Course continues on the same day, time and place for 9 further one hour sessions after the free trial week. The course builds week by week, recapping the move from the previous lesson as part of the standard format, and drawing on moves from earlier in the term as you start to build sequences.

For this reason, we don’t want any participants to get left behind, so we are looking for people who can commit to attending most weeks (or can catch up via online learning). This ensures a higher quality learning experience for the whole group. For this reason, we only accept payment for the full course. Most customers understand the benefit of attending every week and pre-payment is a great incentive.

Each evening we run 2 or 3 x 1-hour classes. There is normally a 15-minute handover between classes. During this interval, (either before or after your lesson) we will leave music running, you are welcome to practice and chat with the team.

Beyond Absolute Beginners

Once you’ve completed the Absolute Beginner SwingJive Course, you’ll be able to follow on to the natural continuation course, either Intermediate Yellow or Intermediate Green, which can be taken in either order. Teachers will demonstrate moves for the continuation course, or you can view them on this link. There are a series of 6 x 10-week courses, each progressing along a pathway that you can follow, explained on this link.

You’ll Love The Music

You’ll recognise most of the music we play. At the beginner level, we use big songs from big artists of the swing and rock’n’roll eras of the 1940s, 50s and 60s.

As you progress to higher levels we’ll introduce you to more amazing music for dancing, some you may not have heard before! This includes original music from current jive, swing and rock’n’roll bands and less well-known retro music too.

Check out some of the typical music we use on this Spotify playlist below!

Can’t Make Free Trial Day?

As location-based courses run over a set 10 week period, the free trial evening is one 1 specific date each term for each beginners course. If you are unable to attend that date then other options could be open to you:

The Absolute Beginners SwingJive Course is designed for you if you have never done any jive or swing dance before. In fact, most new starters have never done any kind of dance class at all. These courses are a perfect starting point for a weekly adult, evening partner dance class and they lead into an exciting, fun and sociable new world. You’ll stay with the partner you bring throughout the course.

“Hi, Just wanted to say how much my husband and I enjoyed our first dance session last night and what a fun night we had and to thank you.” Kind Regards, Angela, Farnham

“Bob and Bridgette are very good and patient teachers. They made the course fun and gave lots of encouragement. We thought the method of teaching, concentrating on and perfecting one move at a time, worked.” (Anita & Mike, Farnborough)

“The best thing I ever did was to learn to swing jive, I just love it. Thank you for all the great courses, keep up the good work.” Denise, Fareham

Limited Spaces with COVID-safe Venue Based Classes… or Learn Online!

Dancing provides a wide range of physical and mental health benefits. Our COVID-safe plan means we have just a limited number of spaces, and venue-based learning will be supported by free online, pre-recorded on-demand learning. Our courses are already designed so that you stay with your partner throughout. If venue-based learning doesn’t suit you, then join our online school to learn exactly the same content anywhere in the world!

See What You Can Learn on The Free Trial

Whether you attend one of our venue based classes, or trial online, you should be able to dance the following moves by the end of our free trial class.

Open To All Adult Ages and Levels of Fitness

As long as you can walk you should be able to take part. The beauty of this style of dancing is that you can push yourself to whatever energy level you are comfortable with. Dancing is a great form of exercise, you’ll be having so much fun that you won’t notice all those calories you are burning!

Who Typically Attends Venue-Based Classes?

Age ranges vary wildly, from our minimum of 18*-80. Our classes are particularly popular with couples keen to share a hobby and spend quality time together. This covers both young professionals as well as couples rebuilding a fun social life, perhaps after years of child-rearing. We also see lots of mother/daughter, sister/sister, girl/girl, boy/boy & girl/boy friend pairings.

Often reluctant husbands are dragged along by enthusiastic wives, yet by the end of the free trial, it is the gents who can’t wait to sign up for the course.

Book Your Free Trial Space in Advance with a Dance Partner

When joining our venue-based classes, please ensure you are attending with a dance partner. We set a 2 person minimum booking for our location-based courses so please book both places at the same time using our online booking system. Simply book your spaces on our free trial class at the class that suits you best. Our system will send a registration email to confirm the venue, date and time details – please check your spam filter if these don’t arrive in your inbox within an hour of booking.

Some people are lucky enough to find a dance partner easily. For those without an obvious dance partner, asking within their own network of friends, family, colleagues and neighbours can reveal somebody who is interested to give the class a go.

Get a Head Start!

If you would like to get a head start before attending a trial, you can take our online free trial, which contains the same content, or even book a private lesson first before your trial class, either in-person or online!

What to Expect on Free Trial Day

Arrive just before the advertised start time for your lesson so the teachers can greet you. Groups are typically between 12 and 30 people, everybody is an absolute beginner so everybody will be experiencing similar nerves and excitement. Once it’s time to start we do a gentle warm-up and teach a couple of simple moves which you can dance on a loop. Before the end of the session, the teachers will demonstrate all the moves coming up on the course.

Paying For The Course

Most people pay for the full course directly at the end of the beginners’ trial session. To make our admin and planning easier we always offer a discounted price if you pay on or before the night of your trial. If you wait until the following day or week the full price is charged.

If you are committed to joining the course regardless of the free trial on the first week you can pay in advance via the relevant course booking page. Payment secures your place on the course.

See What You Can Learn on The Full Course

Building Your Abilities Week-By-Week

The Absolute Beginners SwingJive Course continues on the same day, time and place for 9 further one hour sessions after the free trial week. The course builds week by week, recapping the move from the previous lesson as part of the standard format, and drawing on moves from earlier in the term as you start to build sequences.

For this reason, we don’t want any participants to get left behind, so we are looking for people who can commit to attending most weeks (or can catch up via online learning). This ensures a higher quality learning experience for the whole group. For this reason, we only accept payment for the full course. Most customers understand the benefit of attending every week and pre-payment is a great incentive.

Each evening we run 2 or 3 x 1-hour classes. There is normally a 15-minute handover between classes. During this interval, (either before or after your lesson) we will leave music running, you are welcome to practice and chat with the team.

Beyond Absolute Beginners

Once you’ve completed the Absolute Beginner SwingJive Course, you’ll be able to follow on to the natural continuation course, either Intermediate Yellow or Intermediate Green, which can be taken in either order. Teachers will demonstrate moves for the continuation course, or you can view them on this link. There are a series of 6 x 10-week courses, each progressing along a pathway that you can follow, explained on this link.

You’ll Love The Music

You’ll recognise most of the music we play. At the beginner level, we use big songs from big artists of the swing and rock’n’roll eras of the 1940s, 50s and 60s.

As you progress to higher levels we’ll introduce you to more amazing music for dancing, some you may not have heard before! This includes original music from current jive, swing and rock’n’roll bands and less well-known retro music too.

Check out some of the typical music we use on this Spotify playlist below!

    You'll still be able to book and pay the course fee for classes at your local venue. Make sure you return back to THIS PAGE to book for your local venue, as paying for the online-only course won't register you at a local venue.

    You can also take a trial and pay at an alternative venue, then transfer to your preferred venue subject to availability. A full list of locations with free trials can be found on this link.

    Joining Late

    After the free trial, you'll need to pay the course fee before attending again. You can pay to join late and catch up with our online course, but the standard course fee at your venue applies regardless of how many sessions you attend in total. We recommend that you take our online free trial if you miss the free trial at your local venue.

    Extra Lessons Free!

    All paying participants can benefit from free access to the full course online, free catch-up lessons at alternative venues and a 12-month free repeat guarantee, meaning you have a massive range of opportunities to learn the content on our Absolute Beginners course.

    The Absolute Beginners SwingJive Course is designed for you if you have never done any jive or swing dance before. In fact, most new starters have never done any kind of dance class at all. These courses are a perfect starting point for a weekly adult, evening partner dance class and they lead into an exciting, fun and sociable new world. You'll stay with the partner you bring throughout the course.

    "Hi, Just wanted to say how much my husband and I enjoyed our first dance session last night and what a fun night we had and to thank you." Kind Regards, Angela, Farnham

    "Bob and Bridgette are very good and patient teachers. They made the course fun and gave lots of encouragement. We thought the method of teaching, concentrating on and perfecting one move at a time, worked." (Anita & Mike, Farnborough)

    "The best thing I ever did was to learn to swing jive, I just love it. Thank you for all the great courses, keep up the good work." Denise, Fareham

    Limited Spaces with COVID-safe Venue Based Classes... or Learn Online!

    Dancing provides a wide range of physical and mental health benefits. Our COVID-safe plan means we have just a limited number of spaces, and venue-based learning will be supported by free online, pre-recorded on-demand learning. Our courses are already designed so that you stay with your partner throughout. If venue-based learning doesn't suit you, then join our online school to learn exactly the same content anywhere in the world!

    See What You Can Learn on The Free Trial

    Whether you attend one of our venue based classes, or trial online, you should be able to dance the following moves by the end of our free trial class.

    Open To All Adult Ages and Levels of Fitness

    As long as you can walk you should be able to take part. The beauty of this style of dancing is that you can push yourself to whatever energy level you are comfortable with. Dancing is a great form of exercise, you'll be having so much fun that you won't notice all those calories you are burning!

    Who Typically Attends Venue-Based Classes?

    Age ranges vary wildly, from our minimum of 18*-80. Our classes are particularly popular with couples keen to share a hobby and spend quality time together. This covers both young professionals as well as couples rebuilding a fun social life, perhaps after years of child-rearing. We also see lots of mother/daughter, sister/sister, girl/girl, boy/boy & girl/boy friend pairings.

    Often reluctant husbands are dragged along by enthusiastic wives, yet by the end of the free trial, it is the gents who can't wait to sign up for the course.

    Book Your Free Trial Space in Advance with a Dance Partner

    When joining our venue-based classes, please ensure you are attending with a dance partner. We set a 2 person minimum booking for our location-based courses so please book both places at the same time using our online booking system. Simply book your spaces on our free trial class at the class that suits you best. Our system will send a registration email to confirm the venue, date and time details - please check your spam filter if these don't arrive in your inbox within an hour of booking.

    Some people are lucky enough to find a dance partner easily. For those without an obvious dance partner, asking within their own network of friends, family, colleagues and neighbours can reveal somebody who is interested to give the class a go.

    Get a Head Start!

    If you would like to get a head start before attending a trial, you can take our online free trial, which contains the same content, or even book a private lesson first before your trial class, either in-person or online!

    Click Here to Book Your Free Trial Class in a Local Venue!

    What to Expect on Free Trial Day

    Arrive just before the advertised start time for your lesson so the teachers can greet you. Groups are typically between 12 and 30 people, everybody is an absolute beginner so everybody will be experiencing similar nerves and excitement. Once it's time to start we do a gentle warm-up and teach a couple of simple moves which you can dance on a loop. Before the end of the session, the teachers will demonstrate all the moves coming up on the course.

    Paying For The Course

    Most people pay for the full course directly at the end of the beginners' trial session. To make our admin and planning easier we always offer a discounted price if you pay on or before the night of your trial. If you wait until the following day or week the full price is charged.

    If you are committed to joining the course regardless of the free trial on the first week you can pay in advance via the relevant course booking page. Payment secures your place on the course.

    See What You Can Learn on The Full Course

    Building Your Abilities Week-By-Week

    The Absolute Beginners SwingJive Course continues on the same day, time and place for 9 further one hour sessions after the free trial week. The course builds week by week, recapping the move from the previous lesson as part of the standard format, and drawing on moves from earlier in the term as you start to build sequences.

    For this reason, we don't want any participants to get left behind, so we are looking for people who can commit to attending most weeks (or can catch up via online learning). This ensures a higher quality learning experience for the whole group. For this reason, we only accept payment for the full course. Most customers understand the benefit of attending every week and pre-payment is a great incentive.

    Each evening we run 2 or 3 x 1-hour classes. There is normally a 15-minute handover between classes. During this interval, (either before or after your lesson) we will leave music running, you are welcome to practice and chat with the team.

    Beyond Absolute Beginners

    Once you've completed the Absolute Beginner SwingJive Course, you'll be able to follow on to the natural continuation course, either Intermediate Yellow or Intermediate Green, which can be taken in either order. Teachers will demonstrate moves for the continuation course, or you can view them on this link. There are a series of 6 x 10-week courses, each progressing along a pathway that you can follow, explained on this link.

    You'll Love The Music

    You'll recognise most of the music we play. At the beginner level, we use big songs from big artists of the swing and rock'n'roll eras of the 1940s, 50s and 60s.

    As you progress to higher levels we'll introduce you to more amazing music for dancing, some you may not have heard before! This includes original music from current jive, swing and rock'n'roll bands and less well-known retro music too.

    Check out some of the typical music we use on this Spotify playlist below!

    As location-based courses run over a set 10 week period, the free trial evening is one 1 specific date each term for each beginners course. If you are unable to attend that date then other options could be open to you:

      If you would like to get a head start before attending a trial, you can take our online free trial, which contains the same content, or even book a private lesson first before your trial class, either in-person or online!

      What to Expect on Free Trial Day

      Arrive just before the advertised start time for your lesson so the teachers can greet you. Groups are typically between 12 and 30 people, everybody is an absolute beginner so everybody will be experiencing similar nerves and excitement. Once it’s time to start we do a gentle warm-up and teach a couple of simple moves which you can dance on a loop. Before the end of the session, the teachers will demonstrate all the moves coming up on the course.

      Paying For The Course

      Most people pay for the full course directly at the end of the beginners’ trial session. To make our admin and planning easier we always offer a discounted price if you pay on or before the night of your trial. If you wait until the following day or week the full price is charged.

      If you are committed to joining the course regardless of the free trial on the first week you can pay in advance via the relevant course booking page. Payment secures your place on the course.

      Building Your Abilities Week-By-Week

      The Absolute Beginners SwingJive Course continues on the same day, time and place for 9 further one hour sessions after the free trial week. The course builds week by week, recapping the move from the previous lesson as part of the standard format, and drawing on moves from earlier in the term as you start to build sequences.

      For this reason, we don’t want any participants to get left behind, so we are looking for people who can commit to attending most weeks (or can catch up via online learning). This ensures a higher quality learning experience for the whole group. For this reason, we only accept payment for the full course. Most customers understand the benefit of attending every week and pre-payment is a great incentive.

      Each evening we run 2 or 3 x 1-hour classes. There is normally a 15-minute handover between classes. During this interval, (either before or after your lesson) we will leave music running, you are welcome to practice and chat with the team.

      Beyond Absolute Beginners

      Once you’ve completed the Absolute Beginner SwingJive Course, you’ll be able to follow on to the natural continuation course, either Intermediate Yellow or Intermediate Green, which can be taken in either order. Teachers will demonstrate moves for the continuation course, or you can view them on this link. There are a series of 6 x 10-week courses, each progressing along a pathway that you can follow, explained on this link.

      You’ll Love The Music

      You’ll recognise most of the music we play. At the beginner level we use big songs from big artists of the swing and rock’n’roll eras of the 1940s, 50s and 60s.

      As you progress to higher levels we’ll introduce you to more amazing music for dancing, some you may not have heard before! This includes original music from current jive, swing and rock’n’roll bands and less well-known retro music too.

      Check out some of the typical music we use on this Spotify playlist below!

      Who Typically Attends Venue-Based Classes?

      Age ranges vary wildly, from our minimum of 18*-80. Our classes are particularly popular with couples keen to share a hobby and spend quality time together. This covers both young professionals as well as couples rebuilding a fun social life, perhaps after years of child-rearing. We also see lots of mother/daughter, sister/sister, girl/girl, boy/boy & girl/boy friend pairings.

      Often reluctant husbands are dragged along by enthusiastic wives, yet by the end of the free trial, it is the gents who can’t wait to sign up for the course.

      Book Your Free Trial Space in Advance with a Dance Partner

      When joining our venue-based classes, please ensure you are attending with a dance partner. We set a 2 person minimum booking for our location-based courses so please book both places at the same time using our online booking system. Simply book your spaces on our free trial class at the class that suits you best. Our system will send a registration email to confirm the venue, date and time details – please check your spam filter if these don’t arrive in your inbox within an hour of booking.

      Some people are lucky enough to find a dance partner easily. For those without an obvious dance partner, asking within their own network of friends, family, colleagues and neighbours can reveal somebody who is interested to give the class a go.

      Whether you attend one of our venue based classes, or trial online, you should be able to dance the following moves by the end of our free trial class.

      Open To All Adult Ages and Levels of Fitness

      As long as you can walk you should be able to take part. The beauty of this style of dancing is that you can push yourself to whatever energy level you are comfortable with. Dancing is a great form of exercise, you’ll be having so much fun that you won’t notice all those calories you are burning!

      Who Typically Attends Venue-Based Classes?

      Age ranges vary wildly, from our minimum of 18*-80. Our classes are particularly popular with couples keen to share a hobby and spend quality time together. This covers both young professionals as well as couples rebuilding a fun social life, perhaps after years of child-rearing. We also see lots of mother/daughter, sister/sister, girl/girl, boy/boy & girl/boy friend pairings.

      Often reluctant husbands are dragged along by enthusiastic wives, yet by the end of the free trial, it is the gents who can’t wait to sign up for the course.

      Book Your Free Trial Space in Advance with a Dance Partner

      When joining our venue-based classes, please ensure you are attending with a dance partner. We set a 2 person minimum booking for our location-based courses so please book both places at the same time using our online booking system. Simply book your spaces on our free trial class at the class that suits you best. Our system will send a registration email to confirm the venue, date and time details – please check your spam filter if these don’t arrive in your inbox within an hour of booking.

      Some people are lucky enough to find a dance partner easily. For those without an obvious dance partner, asking within their own network of friends, family, colleagues and neighbours can reveal somebody who is interested to give the class a go.

      Get a Head Start!

      If you would like to get a head start before attending a trial, you can take our online free trial, which contains the same content, or even book a private lesson first before your trial class, either in-person or online!

      What to Expect on Free Trial Day

      Arrive just before the advertised start time for your lesson so the teachers can greet you. Groups are typically between 12 and 30 people, everybody is an absolute beginner so everybody will be experiencing similar nerves and excitement. Once it’s time to start we do a gentle warm-up and teach a couple of simple moves which you can dance on a loop. Before the end of the session, the teachers will demonstrate all the moves coming up on the course.

      Paying For The Course

      Most people pay for the full course directly at the end of the beginners’ trial session. To make our admin and planning easier we always offer a discounted price if you pay on or before the night of your trial. If you wait until the following day or week the full price is charged.

      If you are committed to joining the course regardless of the free trial on the first week you can pay in advance via the relevant course booking page. Payment secures your place on the course.

      See What You Can Learn on The Full Course

      Building Your Abilities Week-By-Week

      The Absolute Beginners SwingJive Course continues on the same day, time and place for 9 further one hour sessions after the free trial week. The course builds week by week, recapping the move from the previous lesson as part of the standard format, and drawing on moves from earlier in the term as you start to build sequences.

      For this reason, we don’t want any participants to get left behind, so we are looking for people who can commit to attending most weeks (or can catch up via online learning). This ensures a higher quality learning experience for the whole group. For this reason, we only accept payment for the full course. Most customers understand the benefit of attending every week and pre-payment is a great incentive.

      Each evening we run 2 or 3 x 1-hour classes. There is normally a 15-minute handover between classes. During this interval, (either before or after your lesson) we will leave music running, you are welcome to practice and chat with the team.

      Beyond Absolute Beginners

      Once you’ve completed the Absolute Beginner SwingJive Course, you’ll be able to follow on to the natural continuation course, either Intermediate Yellow or Intermediate Green, which can be taken in either order. Teachers will demonstrate moves for the continuation course, or you can view them on this link. There are a series of 6 x 10-week courses, each progressing along a pathway that you can follow, explained on this link.

      You’ll Love The Music

      You’ll recognise most of the music we play. At the beginner level, we use big songs from big artists of the swing and rock’n’roll eras of the 1940s, 50s and 60s.

      As you progress to higher levels we’ll introduce you to more amazing music for dancing, some you may not have heard before! This includes original music from current jive, swing and rock’n’roll bands and less well-known retro music too.

      Check out some of the typical music we use on this Spotify playlist below!

      You can also take a trial and pay at an alternative venue, then transfer to your preferred venue subject to availability. A full list of locations with free trials can be found on this link.

      Join Up To Session 3

      After the free trial, you’ll need to pay the course fee before attending again. You can pay to join anytime up to the 3rd session, but the standard course fee applies regardless of how many sessions you attend in total. We recommend that you take our online free trial if you miss the free trial at your local venue.

      Extra Lessons Free!

      All paying participants can benefit from free access to the full course online, free catch-up lessons at alternative venues and a 12-month free repeat guarantee, meaning you have a massive range of opportunities to learn the content on our Absolute Beginners course.

      Who Typically Attends Venue-Based Classes?

      Age ranges vary wildly, from our minimum of 18*-80. Our classes are particularly popular with couples keen to share a hobby and spend quality time together. This covers both young professionals as well as couples rebuilding a fun social life, perhaps after years of child-rearing. We also see lots of mother/daughter, sister/sister, girl/girl, boy/boy & girl/boy friend pairings.

      Often reluctant husbands are dragged along by enthusiastic wives, yet by the end of the free trial, it is the gents who can’t wait to sign up for the course.

      Book Your Free Trial Space in Advance with a Dance Partner

      When joining our venue-based classes, please ensure you are attending with a dance partner. We set a 2 person minimum booking for our location-based courses so please book both places at the same time using our online booking system. Simply book your spaces on our free trial class at the class that suits you best. Our system will send a registration email to confirm the venue, date and time details – please check your spam filter if these don’t arrive in your inbox within an hour of booking.

      Some people are lucky enough to find a dance partner easily. For those without an obvious dance partner, asking within their own network of friends, family, colleagues and neighbours can reveal somebody who is interested to give the class a go.

      Get a Head Start!

      If you would like to get a head start before attending a trial, you can take our online free trial, which contains the same content, or even book a private lesson first before your trial class, either in-person or online!

      What to Expect on Free Trial Day

      Arrive just before the advertised start time for your lesson so the teachers can greet you. Groups are typically between 12 and 30 people, everybody is an absolute beginner so everybody will be experiencing similar nerves and excitement. Once it’s time to start we do a gentle warm-up and teach a couple of simple moves which you can dance on a loop. Before the end of the session, the teachers will demonstrate all the moves coming up on the course.

      Paying For The Course

      Most people pay for the full course directly at the end of the beginners’ trial session. To make our admin and planning easier we always offer a discounted price if you pay on or before the night of your trial. If you wait until the following day or week the full price is charged.

      If you are committed to joining the course regardless of the free trial on the first week you can pay in advance via the relevant course booking page. Payment secures your place on the course.

      Building Your Abilities Week-By-Week

      The Absolute Beginners SwingJive Course continues on the same day, time and place for 9 further one hour sessions after the free trial week. The course builds week by week, recapping the move from the previous lesson as part of the standard format, and drawing on moves from earlier in the term as you start to build sequences.

      For this reason, we don’t want any participants to get left behind, so we are looking for people who can commit to attending most weeks (or can catch up via online learning). This ensures a higher quality learning experience for the whole group. For this reason, we only accept payment for the full course. Most customers understand the benefit of attending every week and pre-payment is a great incentive.

      Each evening we run 2 or 3 x 1-hour classes. There is normally a 15-minute handover between classes. During this interval, (either before or after your lesson) we will leave music running, you are welcome to practice and chat with the team.

      Beyond Absolute Beginners

      Once you’ve completed the Absolute Beginner SwingJive Course, you’ll be able to follow on to the natural continuation course, either Intermediate Yellow or Intermediate Green, which can be taken in either order. Teachers will demonstrate moves for the continuation course, or you can view them on this link. There are a series of 6 x 10-week courses, each progressing along a pathway that you can follow, explained on this link.

      You’ll Love The Music

      You’ll recognise most of the music we play. At the beginner level, we use big songs from big artists of the swing and rock’n’roll eras of the 1940s, 50s and 60s.

      As you progress to higher levels we’ll introduce you to more amazing music for dancing, some you may not have heard before! This includes original music from current jive, swing and rock’n’roll bands and less well-known retro music too.

      Check out some of the typical music we use on this Spotify playlist below!

      As you progress to higher levels we’ll introduce you to more amazing music for dancing, some you may not have heard before! This includes original music from current jive, swing and rock’n’roll bands and less well-known retro music too.

      Check out some of the typical music we use on this Spotify playlist below!

        The Absolute Beginners SwingJive Course is designed for you if you have never done any jive or swing dance before. In fact, most new starters have never done any kind of dance class at all. These courses are a perfect starting point for a weekly adult, evening partner dance class and they lead into an exciting, fun and sociable new world. You'll stay with the partner you bring throughout the course.

        "Hi, Just wanted to say how much my husband and I enjoyed our first dance session last night and what a fun night we had and to thank you." Kind Regards, Angela, Farnham

        "Bob and Bridgette are very good and patient teachers. They made the course fun and gave lots of encouragement. We thought the method of teaching, concentrating on and perfecting one move at a time, worked." (Anita & Mike, Farnborough)

        "The best thing I ever did was to learn to swing jive, I just love it. Thank you for all the great courses, keep up the good work." Denise, Fareham

        Limited Spaces with COVID-safe Venue Based Classes... or Learn Online!

Dancing is a great form of exercise, you'll be having so much fun that you won't notice all those calories you are burning!

        Who Typically Attends Venue-Based Classes?

        Age ranges vary wildly, from our minimum of 18*-80. Our classes are particularly popular with couples keen to share a hobby and spend quality time together. This covers both young professionals as well as couples rebuilding a fun social life, perhaps after years of child-rearing. We also see lots of mother/daughter, sister/sister, girl/girl, boy/boy & girl/boy friend pairings.

        Often reluctant husbands are dragged along by enthusiastic wives, yet by the end of the free trial, it is the gents who can't wait to sign up for the course.

        Book Your Free Trial Space in Advance with a Dance Partner

        When joining our venue-based classes, please ensure you are attending with a dance partner. We set a 2 person minimum booking for our location-based courses so please book both places at the same time using our online booking system. Simply book your spaces on our free trial class at the class that suits you best. Our system will send a registration email to confirm the venue, date and time details - please check your spam filter if these don't arrive in your inbox within an hour of booking.

        Some people are lucky enough to find a dance partner easily. For those without an obvious dance partner, asking within their own network of friends, family, colleagues and neighbours can reveal somebody who is interested to give the class a go.

        Get a Head Start!

        If you would like to get a head start before attending a trial, you can take our online free trial, which contains the same content, or even book a private lesson first before your trial class, either in-person or online!

        Click Here to Book Your Free Trial Class in a Local Venue!

        What to Expect on Free Trial Day

        Arrive just before the advertised start time for your lesson so the teachers can greet you. Groups are typically between 12 and 30 people, everybody is an absolute beginner so everybody will be experiencing similar nerves and excitement. Once it's time to start we do a gentle warm-up and teach a couple of simple moves which you can dance on a loop. Before the end of the session, the teachers will demonstrate all the moves coming up on the course.

        Paying For The Course

        Most people pay for the full course directly at the end of the beginners' trial session. To make our admin and planning easier we always offer a discounted price if you pay on or before the night of your trial. If you wait until the following day or week the full price is charged.

        If you are committed to joining the course regardless of the free trial on the first week you can pay in advance via the relevant course booking page. Payment secures your place on the course.

        See What You Can Learn on The Full Course

        Building Your Abilities Week-By-Week

        The Absolute Beginners SwingJive Course continues on the same day, time and place for 9 further one hour sessions after the free trial week. The course builds week by week, recapping the move from the previous lesson as part of the standard format, and drawing on moves from earlier in the term as you start to build sequences.

        For this reason, we don't want any participants to get left behind, so we are looking for people who can commit to attending most weeks (or can catch up via online learning). This ensures a higher quality learning experience for the whole group. For this reason, we only accept payment for the full course. Most customers understand the benefit of attending every week and pre-payment is a great incentive.

        Each evening we run 2 or 3 x 1-hour classes. There is normally a 15-minute handover between classes. During this interval, (either before or after your lesson) we will leave music running, you are welcome to practice and chat with the team.

        Beyond Absolute Beginners

        Once you've completed the Absolute Beginner SwingJive Course, you'll be able to follow on to the natural continuation course, either Intermediate Yellow or Intermediate Green, which can be taken in either order. Teachers will demonstrate moves for the continuation course, or you can view them on this link. There are a series of 6 x 10-week courses, each progressing along a pathway that you can follow, explained on this link.

        You'll Love The Music

        You'll recognise most of the music we play. At the beginner level, we use big songs from big artists of the swing and rock'n'roll eras of the 1940s, 50s and 60s.

          Limited Spaces with COVID-safe Venue Based Classes… or Learn Online!

          Dancing provides a wide range of physical and mental health benefits. Our COVID-safe plan means we have just a limited number of spaces, and venue-based learning will be supported by free online, pre-recorded on-demand learning. Our courses are already designed so that you stay with your partner throughout. If venue-based learning doesn’t suit you, then join our online school to learn exactly the same content anywhere in the world!

          See What You Can Learn on The Free Trial

          Whether you attend one of our venue based classes, or trial online, you should be able to dance the following moves by the end of our free trial class.

          Open To All Adult Ages and Levels of Fitness

          As long as you can walk you should be able to take part. The beauty of this style of dancing is that you can push yourself to whatever energy level you are comfortable with. Dancing is a great form of exercise, you’ll be having so much fun that you won’t notice all those calories you are burning!

          Who Typically Attends Venue-Based Classes?

          Age ranges vary wildly, from our minimum of 18*-80. Our classes are particularly popular with couples keen to share a hobby and spend quality time together. This covers both young professionals as well as couples rebuilding a fun social life, perhaps after years of child-rearing. We also see lots of mother/daughter, sister/sister, girl/girl, boy/boy & girl/boy friend pairings.

          Often reluctant husbands are dragged along by enthusiastic wives, yet by the end of the free trial, it is the gents who can’t wait to sign up for the course.

          Book Your Free Trial Space in Advance with a Dance Partner

          When joining our venue-based classes, please ensure you are attending with a dance partner. We set a 2 person minimum booking for our location-based courses so please book both places at the same time using our online booking system. Simply book your spaces on our free trial class at the class that suits you best. Our system will send a registration email to confirm the venue, date and time details – please check your spam filter if these don’t arrive in your inbox within an hour of booking.

          Some people are lucky enough to find a dance partner easily. For those without an obvious dance partner, asking within their own network of friends, family, colleagues and neighbours can reveal somebody who is interested to give the class a go.

          Get a Head Start!

          If you would like to get a head start before attending a trial, you can take our online free trial, which contains the same content, or even book a private lesson first before your trial class, either in-person or online!

          Click Here to Book Your Free Trial Class in a Local Venue!

          What to Expect on Free Trial Day

          Arrive just before the advertised start time for your lesson so the teachers can greet you. Groups are typically between 12 and 30 people, everybody is an absolute beginner so everybody will be experiencing similar nerves and excitement. Once it’s time to start we do a gentle warm-up and teach a couple of simple moves which you can dance on a loop. Before the end of the session, the teachers will demonstrate all the moves coming up on the course.

          Paying For The Course

          Most people pay for the full course directly at the end of the beginners’ trial session. To make our admin and planning easier we always offer a discounted price if you pay on or before the night of your trial. If you wait until the following day or week the full price is charged.

          If you are committed to joining the course regardless of the free trial on the first week you can pay in advance via the relevant course booking page. Payment secures your place on the course.

          See What You Can Learn on The Full Course

          Building Your Abilities Week-By-Week

          The Absolute Beginners SwingJive Course continues on the same day, time and place for 9 further one hour sessions after the free trial week. The course builds week by week, recapping the move from the previous lesson as part of the standard format, and drawing on moves from earlier in the term as you start to build sequences.

          For this reason, we don’t want any participants to get left behind, so we are looking for people who can commit to attending most weeks (or can catch up via online learning). This ensures a higher quality learning experience for the whole group. For this reason, we only accept payment for the full course. Most customers understand the benefit of attending every week and pre-payment is a great incentive.

          Each evening we run 2 or 3 x 1-hour classes. There is normally a 15-minute handover between classes. During this interval, (either before or after your lesson) we will leave music running, you are welcome to practice and chat with the team.

          Beyond Absolute Beginners

          Once you’ve completed the Absolute Beginner SwingJive Course, you’ll be able to follow on to the natural continuation course, either Intermediate Yellow or Intermediate Green, which can be taken in either order. Teachers will demonstrate moves for the continuation course, or you can view them on this link. There are a series of 6 x 10-week courses, each progressing along a pathway that you can follow, explained on this link.

          You’ll Love The Music

          You’ll recognise most of the music we play. At the beginner level we use big songs from big artists of the swing and rock’n’roll eras of the 1940s, 50s and 60s.

          As you progress to higher levels we’ll introduce you to more amazing music for dancing, some you may not have heard before! This includes original music from current jive, swing and rock’n’roll bands and less well-known retro music too.

          Check out some of the typical music we use on this Spotify playlist below!

          Absolute Beginners SwingJive Course

          The Absolute Beginners SwingJive Course is designed for you if you have never done any jive or swing dance before. In fact, most new starters have never done any kind of dance class at all. These courses are a perfect starting point for a weekly adult, evening partner dance class and they lead into an exciting, fun and sociable new world. You’ll stay with the partner you bring throughout the course.

          “Hi, Just wanted to say how much my husband and I enjoyed our first dance session last night and what a fun night we had and to thank you.” Kind Regards, Angela, Farnham

          “Bob and Bridgette are very good and patient teachers. They made the course fun and gave lots of encouragement. We thought the method of teaching, concentrating on and perfecting one move at a time, worked.” (Anita & Mike, Farnborough)

          “The best thing I ever did was to learn to swing jive, I just love it. Thank you for all the great courses, keep up the good work.” Denise, Fareham

          Dancing provides a wide range of physical and mental health benefits.

          See What You Can Learn on The Free Trial

          Whether you attend one of our venue based classes, or trial online, you should be able to dance the following moves by the end of our free trial class.

          Open To All Adult Ages and Levels of Fitness

          As long as you can walk you should be able to take part. The beauty of this style of dancing is that you can push yourself to whatever energy level you are comfortable with. Dancing is a great form of exercise, you’ll be having so much fun that you won’t notice all those calories you are burning!

          Who Typically Attends Venue-Based Classes?

          Age ranges vary wildly, from our minimum of 18*-80. Our classes are particularly popular with couples keen to share a hobby and spend quality time together. This covers both young professionals as well as couples rebuilding a fun social life, perhaps after years of child-rearing. We also see lots of mother/daughter, sister/sister, girl/girl, boy/boy & girl/boy friend pairings.

          Often reluctant husbands are dragged along by enthusiastic wives, yet by the end of the free trial, it is the gents who can’t wait to sign up for the course.

          Book Your Free Trial Space in Advance with a Dance Partner

          When joining our venue-based classes, please ensure you are attending with a dance partner. We set a 2 person minimum booking for our location-based courses so please book both places at the same time using our online booking system. Simply book your spaces on our free trial class at the class that suits you best. Our system will send a registration email to confirm the venue, date and time details – please check your spam filter if these don’t arrive in your inbox within an hour of booking.

          Some people are lucky enough to find a dance partner easily. For those without an obvious dance partner, asking within their own network of friends, family, colleagues and neighbours can reveal somebody who is interested to give the class a go.

          Get a Head Start!

          If you would like to get a head start before attending a trial, you can take our online free trial, which contains the same content, or even book a private lesson first before your trial class, either in-person or online!

          Click Here to Book Your Free Trial Class in a Local Venue!

          What to Expect on Free Trial Day

          Arrive just before the advertised start time for your lesson so the teachers can greet you. Groups are typically between 12 and 30 people, everybody is an absolute beginner so everybody will be experiencing similar nerves and excitement. Once it’s time to start we do a gentle warm-up and teach a couple of simple moves which you can dance on a loop. Before the end of the session, the teachers will demonstrate all the moves coming up on the course.

          Paying For The Course

          Most people pay for the full course directly at the end of the beginners’ trial session. To make our admin and planning easier we always offer a discounted price if you pay on or before the night of your trial. If you wait until the following day or week the full price is charged.

          If you are committed to joining the course regardless of the free trial on the first week you can pay in advance via the relevant course booking page. Payment secures your place on the course.

          Building Your Abilities Week-By-Week

          The Absolute Beginners SwingJive Course continues on the same day, time and place for 9 further one hour sessions after the free trial week. The course builds week by week, recapping the move from the previous lesson as part of the standard format, and drawing on moves from earlier in the term as you start to build sequences.

          For this reason, we don’t want any participants to get left behind, so we are looking for people who can commit to attending most weeks (or can catch up via online learning). This ensures a higher quality learning experience for the whole group. For this reason, we only accept payment for the full course. Most customers understand the benefit of attending every week and pre-payment is a great incentive.

          Each evening we run 2 or 3 x 1-hour classes. There is normally a 15-minute handover between classes. During this interval, (either before or after your lesson) we will leave music running, you are welcome to practice and chat with the team.

          Beyond Absolute Beginners

          Once you’ve completed the Absolute Beginner SwingJive Course, you’ll be able to follow on to the natural continuation course, either Intermediate Yellow or Intermediate Green, which can be taken in either order. Teachers will demonstrate moves for the continuation course, or you can view them on this link. There are a series of 6 x 10-week courses, each progressing along a pathway that you can follow, explained on this link.

          You’ll Love The Music

          You’ll recognise most of the music we play. At the beginner level we use big songs from big artists of the swing and rock’n’roll eras of the 1940s, 50s and 60s.

          As you progress to higher levels we’ll introduce you to more amazing music for dancing, some you may not have heard before! This includes original music from current jive, swing and rock’n’roll bands and less well-known retro music too.

          Check out some of the typical music we use on this Spotify playlist below!

          Absolute Beginners SwingJive Course

          The Absolute Beginners SwingJive Course is designed for you if you have never done any jive or swing dance before. In fact, most new starters have never done any kind of dance class at all. These courses are a perfect starting point for a weekly adult, evening partner dance class and they lead into an exciting, fun and sociable new world. You’ll stay with the partner you bring throughout the course.

          “Hi, Just wanted to say how much my husband and I enjoyed our first dance session last night and what a fun night we had and to thank you.” Kind Regards, Angela, Farnham

          “Bob and Bridgette are very good and patient teachers. They made the course fun and gave lots of encouragement. We thought the method of teaching, concentrating on and perfecting one move at a time, worked.” (Anita & Mike, Farnborough)

          “The best thing I ever did was to learn to swing jive, I just love it. Thank you for all the great courses, keep up the good work.” Denise, Fareham

          Limited Spaces with COVID-safe Venue Based Classes… or Learn Online!

          Dancing provides a wide range of physical and mental health benefits. Our COVID-safe plan means we have just a limited number of spaces, and venue-based learning will be supported by free online, pre-recorded on-demand learning. Our courses are already designed so that you stay with your partner throughout. If venue-based learning doesn’t suit you, then join our online school to learn exactly the same content anywhere in the world!

          See What You Can Learn on The Free Trial

          Whether you attend one of our venue based classes, or trial online, you should be able to dance the following moves by the end of our free trial class.

          Open To All Adult Ages and Levels of Fitness

          As long as you can walk you should be able to take part. The beauty of this style of dancing is that you can push yourself to whatever energy level you are comfortable with. Dancing is a great form of exercise, you’ll be having so much fun that you won’t notice all those calories you are burning!

          Who Typically Attends Venue-Based Classes?

          Age ranges vary wildly, from our minimum of 18*-80. Our classes are particularly popular with couples keen to share a hobby and spend quality time together. This covers both young professionals as well as couples rebuilding a fun social life, perhaps after years of child-rearing. We also see lots of mother/daughter, sister/sister, girl/girl, boy/boy & girl/boy friend pairings.

          Often reluctant husbands are dragged along by enthusiastic wives, yet by the end of the free trial, it is the gents who can’t wait to sign up for the course.

          Book Your Free Trial Space in Advance with a Dance Partner

          When joining our venue-based classes, please ensure you are attending with a dance partner. We set a 2 person minimum booking for our location-based courses so please book both places at the same time using our online booking system. Simply book your spaces on our free trial class at the class that suits you best. Our system will send a registration email to confirm the venue, date and time details – please check your spam filter if these don’t arrive in your inbox within an hour of booking.

          Some people are lucky enough to find a dance partner easily. For those without an obvious dance partner, asking within their own network of friends, family, colleagues and neighbours can reveal somebody who is interested to give the class a go.

          Get a Head Start!

          If you would like to get a head start before attending a trial, you can take our online free trial, which contains the same content, or even book a private lesson first before your trial class, either in-person or online!

          Click Here to Book Your Free Trial Class in a Local Venue!

          What to Expect on Free Trial Day

          Arrive just before the advertised start time for your lesson so the teachers can greet you. Groups are typically between 12 and 30 people, everybody is an absolute beginner so everybody will be experiencing similar nerves and excitement. Once it’s time to start we do a gentle warm-up and teach a couple of simple moves which you can dance on a loop. Before the end of the session, the teachers will demonstrate all the moves coming up on the course.

          Paying For The Course

          Most people pay for the full course directly at the end of the beginners’ trial session. To make our admin and planning easier we always offer a discounted price if you pay on or before the night of your trial. If you wait until the following day or week the full price is charged.

          If you are committed to joining the course regardless of the free trial on the first week you can pay in advance via the relevant course booking page. Payment secures your place on the course.

          See What You Can Learn on The Full Course

          Building Your Abilities Week-By-Week

          The Absolute Beginners SwingJive Course continues on the same day, time and place for 9 further one hour sessions after the free trial week. The course builds week by week, recapping the move from the previous lesson as part of the standard format, and drawing on moves from earlier in the term as you start to build sequences.

          For this reason, we don’t want any participants to get left behind, so we are looking for people who can commit to attending most weeks (or can catch up via online learning). This ensures a higher quality learning experience for the whole group. For this reason, we only accept payment for the full course. Most customers understand the benefit of attending every week and pre-payment is a great incentive.

          Each evening we run 2 or 3 x 1-hour classes. There is normally a 15-minute handover between classes. During this interval, (either before or after your lesson) we will leave music running, you are welcome to practice and chat with the team.

          Beyond Absolute Beginners

          Once you’ve completed the Absolute Beginner SwingJive Course, you’ll be able to follow on to the natural continuation course, either Intermediate Yellow or Intermediate Green, which can be taken in either order. Teachers will demonstrate moves for the continuation course, or you can view them on this link. There are a series of 6 x 10-week courses, each progressing along a pathway that you can follow, explained on this link.

          You’ll Love The Music

          You’ll recognise most of the music we play. At the beginner level we use big songs from big artists of the swing and rock’n’roll eras of the 1940s, 50s and 60s.

          As you progress to higher levels we’ll introduce you to more amazing music for dancing, some you may not have heard before! This includes original music from current jive, swing and rock’n’roll bands and less well-known retro music too.

          Check out some of the typical music we use on this Spotify playlist below!

          Can’t Make Free Trial Day?

          As location-based courses run over a set 10 week period, the free trial evening is one 1 specific date each term for each beginners course. If you are unable to attend that date then other options could be open to you:

          If you are committed to joining the course regardless of the free trial on the first week you can pay in advance via the relevant course booking page. Payment secures your place on the course.

          Building Your Abilities Week-By-Week

          The Absolute Beginners SwingJive Course continues on the same day, time and place for 9 further one hour sessions after the free trial week. The course builds week by week, recapping the move from the previous lesson as part of the standard format, and drawing on moves from earlier in the term as you start to build sequences.

          For this reason, we don’t want any participants to get left behind, so we are looking for people who can commit to attending most weeks (or can catch up via online learning). This ensures a higher quality learning experience for the whole group. For this reason, we only accept payment for the full course. Most customers understand the benefit of attending every week and pre-payment is a great incentive.

          Each evening we run 2 or 3 x 1-hour classes. There is normally a 15-minute handover between classes. During this interval, (either before or after your lesson) we will leave music running, you are welcome to practice and chat with the team.

          Beyond Absolute Beginners

          Once you’ve completed the Absolute Beginner SwingJive Course, you’ll be able to follow on to the natural continuation course, either Intermediate Yellow or Intermediate Green, which can be taken in either order. Teachers will demonstrate moves for the continuation course, or you can view them on this link. There are a series of 6 x 10-week courses, each progressing along a pathway that you can follow, explained on this link.

          You’ll Love The Music

          You’ll recognise most of the music we play. At the beginner level we use big songs from big artists of the swing and rock’n’roll eras of the 1940s, 50s and 60s.

          As you progress to higher levels we’ll introduce you to more amazing music for dancing, some you may not have heard before! This includes original music from current jive, swing and rock’n’roll bands and less well-known retro music too.

          Absolute Beginners SwingJive Course

          The Absolute Beginners SwingJive Course is designed for you if you have never done any jive or swing dance before. In fact, most new starters have never done any kind of dance class at all. These courses are a perfect starting point for a weekly adult, evening partner dance class and they lead into an exciting, fun and sociable new world. You’ll stay with the partner you bring throughout the course.

          “Hi, Just wanted to say how much my husband and I enjoyed our first dance session last night and what a fun night we had and to thank you.” Kind Regards, Angela, Farnham

          “Bob and Bridgette are very good and patient teachers. They made the course fun and gave lots of encouragement. We thought the method of teaching, concentrating on and perfecting one move at a time, worked.” (Anita & Mike, Farnborough)

          “The best thing I ever did was to learn to swing jive, I just love it. Thank you for all the great courses, keep up the good work.” Denise, Fareham

          Limited Spaces with COVID-safe Venue Based Classes… or Learn Online!

          Dancing provides a wide range of physical and mental health benefits. Our COVID-safe plan means we have just a limited number of spaces, and venue-based learning will be supported by free online, pre-recorded on-demand learning. Our courses are already designed so that you stay with your partner throughout. If venue-based learning doesn’t suit you, then join our online school to learn exactly the same content anywhere in the world!

          Open To All Adult Ages and Levels of Fitness

          As long as you can walk you should be able to take part. The beauty of this style of dancing is that you can push yourself to whatever energy level you are comfortable with. Dancing is a great form of exercise, you’ll be having so much fun that you won’t notice all those calories you are burning!

          Who Typically Attends Venue-Based Classes?

          Age ranges vary wildly, from our minimum of 18*-80. Our classes are particularly popular with couples keen to share a hobby and spend quality time together. This covers both young professionals as well as couples rebuilding a fun social life, perhaps after years of child-rearing. We also see lots of mother/daughter, sister/sister, girl/girl, boy/boy & girl/boy friend pairings.

          Often reluctant husbands are dragged along by enthusiastic wives, yet by the end of the free trial, it is the gents who can’t wait to sign up for the course.

          Book Your Free Trial Space in Advance with a Dance Partner

          When joining our venue-based classes, please ensure you are attending with a dance partner. We set a 2 person minimum booking for our location-based courses so please book both places at the same time using our online booking system. Simply book your spaces on our free trial class at the class that suits you best. Our system will send a registration email to confirm the venue, date and time details – please check your spam filter if these don’t arrive in your inbox within an hour of booking.

          Some people are lucky enough to find a dance partner easily. For those without an obvious dance partner, asking within their own network of friends, family, colleagues and neighbours can reveal somebody who is interested to give the class a go.

          Get a Head Start!

          If you would like to get a head start before attending a trial, you can take our online free trial, which contains the same content, or even book a private lesson first before your trial class, either in-person or online!

          What to Expect on Free Trial Day

          Arrive just before the advertised start time for your lesson so the teachers can greet you. Groups are typically between 12 and 30 people, everybody is an absolute beginner so everybody will be experiencing similar nerves and excitement. Once it’s time to start we do a gentle warm-up and teach a couple of simple moves which you can dance on a loop. Before the end of the session, the teachers will demonstrate all the moves coming up on the course.

          Paying For The Course

          Most people pay for the full course directly at the end of the beginners’ trial session. To make our admin and planning easier we always offer a discounted price if you pay on or before the night of your trial. If you wait until the following day or week the full price is charged.

            You'll still be able to book and pay the course fee for classes at your local venue. Make sure you return back to THIS PAGE to book for your local venue, as paying for the online-only course won't register you at a local venue.

You can pay to join late and catch up with our online course, but the standard course fee at your venue applies regardless of how many sessions you attend in total. We recommend that you take our online free trial if you miss the free trial at your local venue.
