Swing Live!

Where can I dance to a live band?” We get that question a lot. So we’re having more live bands at our regular weekly social nights.

There is nothing like dancing to live swinging jazz music! We’re offering more opportunities to dance to a live band and some of our class venues are just perfect for live music and dancing. Whilst never becoming a weekly thing, it’s great to diversify our nights, have live music from time to time and do something a bit different.

The bands vary from amateur to professional and reflect all styles of swing. Let’s dance!

 

We had 18 live bands to dance to at our regular social nights in 2016, with more to come in 2017.
