C Jam is Swingland's weekly Tuesday night swing dance and music club at renowned venue The Bedford in Balham, South London - learn with experienced professional teachers, and dance to top swing DJs and monthly live bands.

What happens at C Jam?

C Jam runs on Tuesday evenings

Starting out - beginners class - 6.45pm-7.45pm

For those new to swing dancing the evening starts with weekly drop-in classes aimed to make those first steps as straightforward and enjoyable as possible. Covering all the basic steps and rhythms of Lindy hop - different material is taught each week and the classes are designed so that you can join any time and you can progress without needing to be there every week. No previous experience required. Fun, social and informative! Rotate partners (no partner needed) or stay with fixed partner - your choice.

Practice time/social

Between the classes there is time to practise - and to grab a drink from the bar downstairs!

Intermediates class - 8.15pm-9pm

Challenge yourself and move your dancing to the next level! You need to be familiar with Lindy hop basics including swing out, Lindy turn and partnered Lindy hop Charleston to take this class. These steps are covered in our beginners classes and beginners/improvers workshops. Partners all rotate in intermediates.

Social dancing - from 9pm

After the classes it's dancing time - swing out to the very best recorded music from the 1930s, 40s & 50s. Newer recordings are also played - provided that they really do swing!

Live music at C Jam
