Thursdays, Digswell Village Hall, 8pm
JIVESWING WELWYN WILL BE BACK FROM 2ND SEPTEMBER CLICK HERE TO BOOK & MORE INFORMATION
Tucked away in the village of Digswell, is JiveSwing’s very first venue. It’s a fun cosmopolitan club, with people of all ages, race and background.
You’ll find us on Thursdays, 8-11 pm at Digswell Village Hall, AL6 0AT. Please note every 3rd Thursday of the month we move to Lemsford Village Hall.
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 50 mins.
You will have 10 mins to practice and have some (free) 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).
Digswell Village Hall, 30 Harmer Green Lane, Digswell, Welwyn, Herts, Al6 0AT.
Thursday nights at Digswell are opposite Welwyn North train station with plenty of parking available behind the venue & on the road.
Our Welwyn class attracts dancers from Ware, Hoddesdon, Broxbourne, Harlow, Hertford, Stevenage, Hitchin, Hatfield and much further afield.
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 students) you get 10 classes/socials for the price of 8!
We look forward to welcoming you to Jiveswing Welwyn!
