Wednesdays, The Essex Arms, 8pm
Brentwood is home to our first swing dance class in Essex. Brentwood has a nice, friendly learning environment filled with people of all ages. Brentwood is also just a Jiveswing stroll from Retro Saturdays, our monthly social dance in Chelmsford.
You’ll find us on Wednesdays, 8-11pm at The Essex Arms, Warley Hill, Brentwood, Essex, CM14 5HA.
What to Expect
Doors open at 7:45 pm. When you arrive, you will be greeted by our friendly crew who will guide you through ‘what’s what’. The night kicks off with a beginners class which lasts for 50mins.
You will have 10mins to practice and have some refreshments whilst making new friends before the next class, which lasts a further 50mins. After this time we hope that you stay on, socialise and try out your new moves and dance with more experienced dancers! It’s a real fun night out, we think we’re the UK’s friendliest swing dance club!
We will focus primarily on Lindy Hop. However, from time to time you will be introduced to a variety of other styles including 1920s Charleston, Balboa and Authentic Jazz. You can accelerate with workshops.
Adults of all ages come to dance, we have as many single people as we do couples. You don’t need a partner, previous experience or special clothing. Just wear clothes you’re comfortable moving about in and shoes/trainers (not with large grips).
Please note, drinks must be bought from the bar, please do not bring your own drinks.
The Essex Arms, Warley Hill, Brentwood, Essex, CM14 5HA. As the class is held in a bar please do not bring your own drinks into the venue, you can get whatever you need from the bar 🙂
There is a free car park at the rear of the Essex Arms, plus on-road parking directly outside.
Our Brentwood class attracts dancers from Brentwood, Romford, Dagenham, Billericay, Epping, Loughton and Upminster.
When’s a Good Time to Start?
Our classes generally run in 7 week courses so you can progress throughout the weeks, however it doesn’t matter if you miss a couple or drop in on a later week as we always cater for beginners. If you are a brand newbie that has never danced before, you are welcome to join us on any week, however if you are taking your very first steps week 1 is a great place to start along with lots of other newbies!
A whole night of dancing costs £10 (£8 for full-time students with a valid ID showing full-time education). If you want to come just for social dancing (10 pm onwards) it costs just £5.
We’re sure you’ll want to come more than once and attend a few socials. Why not get the Jiveswing Class Pass? For £80 (£64 full-time students) you get 10 classes/socials for the price of 8!
We look forward to seeing you at Jiveswing Brentwood!
