At JiveSwing there are classes taking place every weeknight across Hertfordshire, Essex and Middlesex (north London) in Lindy Hop, the original swing dance. We also teach other swing dance styles such as Authentic Jazz, East Coast Swing, 20s Charleston, Balboa, Blues etc.
JiveSwing teachers are currently some of the UK and Europe’s most highly trained and hired international Lindy Hop teachers, keeping in touch with some of the original 1930s/40s dancers as personal mentors and for inspiration.
Whichever class you attend, you’ll get high quality, where our main focus is making things simple and breaking it all down into manageable bits. Classes are taught in a style that makes it fun, friendly and easy to learn. Whilst we highly recommend all absolute beginners to start with a progressive 6-8 week course (see our calendar for dates), you can also drop in whenever!

We think we’re the UK’s friendliest swing dance club! After every class we have social dancing (or just a gossip by the biscuits) and no new dancer will ever find themselves stuck watching from the sidelines. If you decide you like us you’ll also enjoy our monthly social dances and all the other social get-togethers that happen on a regular basis.
Nice things you’ve said about us…
“I love the classes, social scene, events and the dancing, but most of all I love the fabulous new friends I have made! More fun than you can shake a stick at!”
“I can’t recommend JiveSwing highly enough- in the 3 months I have been attending classes, it has had such a positive impact on my life. Not only do I absolutely love the dancing and have never enjoyed any form of exercise quite so much, but the atmosphere in the class is so warm and welcoming. I have met many lovely people and hopefully made some great friends for the future.”
“I love how social JiveSwing is! It is lovely that we are all encouraged to get together, and it is like a little community.”
