Dance to infectious big band swing, and get taken back to the swinging 30s or wartime. No party in the thirties or forties was complete without dancing and music, no matter how modest. People would put on the wireless or the gramophone and dance! So if you want to get the feel of the 40s or 30s, then get dancing!
You’ll learn lots of fun vintage jazz dance steps such as boogie backs, shorty George’s, tacky Annie’s and smack the pony. Then you’ll learn a fun dance routine that you all do together, just for fun, or even to take away and dance at the wedding. Contact us for details and prices.
Why not combine your class with:
- afternoon tea in London or afternoon tea in Cheltenham?
- We offer 1940s dance dinners in Cheltenham
- and we have an amazing country house vintage venue near Reading where you can stay for the weekend or hire for the day, and combine your class with a vintage tea party.
- Dancing vintage tea parties are also available in Oxford, Oxfordshire and the Cotswolds. Swinging! Replicate the feeling of a wartime village dance, or a VE Day party.
Partnered swing and lindy Hop dance Classes
We can also do partnered swing and lindy hop dance classes, if you’d like to learn some lead and follow partner dancing, for a little bit more of a technical challenge.
