Don your sharpest threads and head to Shoreditch Town Hall as we Swing into Spring!
Get in the groove with the beginner and intermediate swing dance classes to kick off the evening where you can learn some hot moves that will keep you dancing all night long.
There'll be great vintage tunes from the 30s, 40s and 50s courtesy of DJ Simon "Mr Kicks" Selmon, and cabaret performances from SwingDance UK. One of London's top hot jazz ensembles, Simon Coombe’s Hot Six, will have the joint jumpin' as you jive, jitterbug and hoochie coochie and shim sham shimmy your way through the evening
Live music will be provided by Steve Coombe's Hot Six. Playing the hot jazz of the 1920s and 1930s, they already have a reputation for producing some of the best social dance music around. Led by trumpet player and leader of the internationally acclaimed Shirt Tail Stompers, the band has played at dances and festivals including European Swing Dance Championships, Harlem in Lithuania, London Swing Festival and London Lindy Exchange. Steven has also led bands at Festivals in Sweden, Canada, Norway, Hungary, Italy, Spain and throughout the UK. Expect singing, dancing and a whole lot of fun!
