Friday Night Jive

At our Friday night dance party in Windsor you can expect great music and a fun and friendly atmosphere.

All styles of swing/jive dancing are welcome, as are non-dancers and complete beginners - come along, enjoy the music and see what swing is all about! Come with friends, a partner or on your own - everyone is welcome and you'll soon feel at home!

There is no need to book - just turn up.

  • 9pm Doors open
  • Grab a drink from the bar and join us in the auditorium (on rare occasions we're in the basement - see Dates for which).

  • 9pm-late Music and dancing
  • Jive, swing, Lindy hop and jitterbug to the very best swingin' tunes from the past to the present (Count Basie, Ella Fitzgerald, Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller through to Lavay Smith, Ray Gelato and Royal Crown Revue) from top swing DJs!


If you want to learn some steps beforehand - or you get inspired by what you see - why not come along to our weekly classes at The Firestation on a Monday night - or any of our other classes and workshops?

Friday Night Jive is once a month except over the Summer - please see Dates.

There is no specific dress code, but an effort is much appreciated on a Friday night - see What to wear.
