|.||In line with official government advice re: COVID-19 (Coronavirus) all our classes and social dances are closed until further notice. Please check back for updates. We hope to see you all soon. Take care and stay safe everyone.
With classes in Kingston and South Croydon, Bojangles together with Kingston Jumpin’ Jive form a dance community based around 1940's style Jitterbug Jive, Swing and Rock ‘n Roll dancing.
Maybe you have tried Ballroom? Modern Jive? Latin? Or maybe you are looking for a new hobby and are completely new to dancing? We welcome everyone to come along and discover how much fun and enjoyment you can have learning 1940's Jitterbug Jive!
Our aim is to bring the fun and excitement of jive dancing to local people. The classes are as much about meeting new people and having fun as well as learning to dance.
We teach Jitterbug as our basic, adding in a mix of six and eight count footwork to add variety and variation. This style of jive came to Britain in the mid 1940’s with the arrival of the American GI.
Dancing is energetic and lots of fun and a great way to meet people. One of the main reasons why Swing Jive is so much fun is because dancers have the chance to add their personal style and expression.
You do not need to book or bring a partner and as we do not run courses you can start dancing at any time - why wait?
