Learn to Dance

Friendly dance classes that treat you as an individual rather than just one of the crowd. At Jivebeat the emphasis is on you learning to dance your way, with one-to-one help available after every class and a modern teaching style that keeps the fun in learning, whatever your dancing experience.

All our classes are drop-in classes, with no courses to book or specific days that you have to start. Jivebeat LeRoc (modern jive) and Argentine Tango classes always start with the basics, then we add in something more detailed or challenging for anyone with a bit more experience to work with.

Give it a go!

But don't take our word for it, give it a go and see for yourself what has made partner dancing such a huge phenomenon. A Jivebeat evening is as much a social event as it is a dance class, so come with friends and make an evening of it, or come on your own and make new friends when you get there. There is no need to book, just come along, join the fun, and learn to dance! You don't even have to bring a partner!

X-Tango Alternative Milonga

Modern music... no traditions... just dancing!

Get ready to think about music for tango in a whole new way - sometimes challenging, sometimes familiar, and sometimes completely unexpected. Graham's DJ sets will take your tango experience in completely new directions, with all modern music, no tandas, and no cortinas, just dancing from the beginning to the end of the evening.

Please note that unlike previous X-Tango Alternative Milongas there is no warm-up class at this event, so it will be music all the way from 8pm-11pm.

£12 on the door or £10 if you pre-book at one of our classes or via our website. Free tea, coffee, water, squash, and nibbles. Cheap soft drinks. Bring your own alcohol if you want.
