Harlem Nights is our most established social dance with dancers travelling from London, Beds, Bucks, Cambs, Herts, Essex and more!

Each month we have fantastic DJs and also live music on occasion, with a goal to recreate the feeling and spirit of the Savoy Ballroom right here in Hertfordshire, as well as fostering a warm and welcoming community for everyone.

SPACES: Booking Now Open!



Harlem Nights will kick off at 7:00pm this month to honour World Lindy Hop Month with a history discussion in the lecture hall. We will then head downstairs to the main hall to start the social dance with a fun class then dance the night away to our fantastic DJ’s! There will be a short interval for our 60 second showcase so you can watch the shows…or take part if you want to! 

Open to everyone! If you’ve ever wanted to perform, now is your chance! Get your friends together or go it solo – anything goes! You have up to 60 seconds to perform your choreography or chosen piece in a super friendly and supportive environment… The showcase is not just restricted to dancing!
