Saturday morning

If you're awake at 9 am, there's a 5 km parkrun on Storey's Field, right behind our main venue. 

You can walk, jog or run: parkrun is open to all. Wear a swing dance shirt so we can find each other for coffee and cake after. Don't forget your barcode!

8:45 am for a 9 am-ish start

Everyone's welcome, from those who've never tried switching before and would like to try dancing the other role, to switching veterans!
11 am - noon

Slow Bal with Izzy and Louis

Izzy and Louis are joining us from the London Balboa Collective to share their love of Slow Balboa, a dance that combines the partner connection of Balboa with gorgeous slower jazz and blues music. They will give you a taste of what makes this dance so great and how to explore it on the social dancefloor (and it might even help for the Saturday afterparty). 

12:15 pm - 1:15 pm


Hip Hop with Marius

Learn about Locking & Popping, dance styles that became integral part of hip-hop dancing. Time travel back to the era of Soul Train, Electric Boogaloos, and funk music. Be prepared to Scooby Doo and do the Fresno!

1:45 pm - 2:45 pm

Jazz Jam session

Come and play, or come and dance. Bring your instruments! There will be a keyboard, guitars, microphone, and some music available.
