Free 12 Month Course Repeat Guarantee

Free Catch-Up Classes at Alternative Locations

Free 12 Month Access to Online Course, On-Demand

Join Intermediate Courses After Completing Beginners!

We run TWO 10 week intermediate SwingJive courses, “Green” and “Yellow”. They are the perfect follow on for anybody who has completed the Absolute Beginners SwingJive Course. They are the next level up from Beginners, and at the same level as each other. The Green and Yellow Intermediate courses are available on alternate terms.

£10pp Early Bird Discount

Pay for the course by 11.55pm on New Years Eve to get an extra £10 per person off the course fee, compared to the standard rate.

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 this course.

Booking Closes Prior To Lesson 3

Your course fee requires payment prior to attendance. Bookings will close prior to Lesson 3 so you can pay to join anytime up to then, but the standard course fee applies regardless of how many sessions you attend in total.

Limited Spaces with COVID-safe Classes

Making our classes COVID-safe is a high priority and we have a plan in place to help achieve this. Our COVID-safe plan means we have just a limited number of spaces.

Please check over our plan. By booking, we understand that you are happy to go ahead with classes on the basis of the plan. This course is available on a first-come-first-serve basis and numbers will be limited in line with our COVID-safe plan.

Venue-based learning will be supported by free online, pre-recorded on-demand learning.

Standard Terms & Conditions

By booking a course we understand that you accept our terms and conditions, which can be viewed on this link. Terms and conditions cover issues such as payments and refunds, class sizes, arranging dance partners and health and safety.

When to Take The Intermediate Courses

The Green and Yellow Intermediate courses can be taken in either order. They are designed to follow on from our Absolute Beginners SwingJive Course. It is best to complete both of the Intermediate courses before moving on to the Inters Plus level SwingJive courses. We alternate Intermediate Green & Yellow courses, if the current term offers one colour, expect the other colour to be available the following term.

An Intermediate course is normally the best option if you have been dancing with us for one or two terms. That is you have just completed the Absolute Beginners Course only, or the beginner’s course plus the other colour Intermediate Course.

What To Expect

Each Intermediate Course contains a similar number of moves to the Absolute Beginners Jive Course. The format and structure continue in the same pattern too.

On the beginner’s course, we keep the footwork simple. Most of the moves on the intermediate course have simple footwork too. However, we do add in new footwork rhythms. The six-beat rhythm is added early in each Intermediate course, as is the basic Charleston rhythm.

These new rhythms are great because they allow you to keep on dancing without having to keep on spinning all the time! Leaders can do a simple repeated rhythm and give themselves thinking time, ladies get a rest from all the spins!

So if you loved the beginner’s course you are sure to love the Intermediate SwingJive courses even more!

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!

Click Here For An On-Demand Online Free Trial

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!

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

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
  • Book the Course without Taking a Free Trial – use the “Course Fee” ticket option when booking your preferred course

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 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.

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 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!

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!

“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!

      Get Back Into The Swing With a Beginners Refresher Workshop!

      If your SwingJive moves need a bit of practice then our Beginner's Refresher Workshop is perfect for you! This is a stand-alone evening workshop, open to anybody who has started a 10-week Absolute Beginners SwingJive course with us at any time, no matter how long ago!

      With a running time of 2 hours 15 minutes, the instructors will have time to run through the key parts of the Absolute Beginners SwingJive course. This workshop would suit you if:

      • your Absolute Beginners SwingJive course was interrupted in the past and you want to cover the rest of the moves
      • you're planning on joining a continuation SwingJive course this term and want a quick brush-up on the basics
      • you took our Beginners Course in the past and want to jog your memory without spending 10 weeks learning

      This workshop is not suitable for complete beginners who have never started one of our courses before. We recommend that you book the free trial coming up next week.

      Run-Through of the Beginners Course

      This workshop evening is a great opportunity for you to get back in the dance hall and practice your moves. The instructor will cover the contents of the Absolute Beginners 10-week SwingJive course.
