We believe that dancing is not only good for you physically, but for your soul and spirit too! Many people who discover dancing make it a core part of their lives, due to how much you get back, from putting in relatively small amounts of effort.

Make friends, have fun, dance socially, get some exercise without feeling like a hamster in a wheel at the gym, learn to perform - whatever your goals, we have something for you.

We teach people to dance together to music ranging from Charlestons of the roaring 20's through to the big band swing of Count Basie and Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, and the cool rat pack sounds of Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr, through R'n'B Jump Jive, Boogie Woogie, and Rock'n'Roll, right up to the modern day with Harry Connick Jr,Michael Buble and Robbie Williams.

This music ranges from ultra cool and funky, to sizzling hot and crazy.

Whatever your style we have something for you.

Every week we cater for complete dance beginners in our first class, all you need to bring is some comfy shoes, an open mind, and your smile, cos your gonna need it! Our classes are relaxed and friendly, allowing you to enjoy a good time as you learn to dance. You don't need to bring a partner, as everyone rotates in the class. so by the end of the class everyone will have danced with everyone. As well as classes, and workshops, we also run live music and freestyle nights, where you get to show off your

Don't just take our word for it though, come along and check it out - we look forward to seeing you soon.
