Welcome to Jive Cats

Have you never danced before? Do you have 2 left feet? Are you sometimes dance-shy at parties? Or are you in need of a routine for your wedding or other special event?

Our beginners classes are designed to get everyone social dancing. Instead of wishing that you could dance come and join our friendly groups sessions and you will soon be joining the action on the dance floor. Dancing is great for your body, mind and social life.

Jive Classes: authentic vintage American 6-beat jive, simply perfect for dancing to rock 'n' roll and for rhythm 'n' blues.

Swing Classes: learn the Lindy Hop, Charleston, Collegiate Shag, Boogie Woogie, solo jazz steps or even West Coast Swing, classy and playful swing dances from America.

Providing expert and personalised tuition since 1990, we will gently coach you on how to be a cool cat, even when the rhythm is hot, and put a smile on your dancing.
