About JUMPIN'!

At JUMPIN'! you'll find everyone from complete beginners to experienced dancers. Expect great swing music and a fun and friendly atmosphere. Depending on the time of year, anything from 50-100+ people attend.

Dance the night away or just soak up the atmosphere! As regulars to our Tuesday night classes C Jam will know, The Bedford's ballroom has one of the best dance floors around. With top swing DJs (and occasionally live bands) playing "the best swing music in town" you will find it hard to keep still!

If you're new to swing dancing a beginners swing dance class is included - this an opportunity to learn a few simple, fun steps to try out later on. You don't need a partner as we rotate throughout. The class is aimed at absolute beginners.

There is no need to book - just turn up.

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