Welcome to Joint’s a Hoppin’ – The lindy hop, balboa, shag and jive event for Surrey and Hampshire

A new lindy hop, swing and jive social dance event based at Woking Con Club, Woking, Surrey.  We aim to provide a regular opportunity for lindy hoppers, swing dancers and jivers to strut their stuff in a comfortable, sociable and informal environment. If you haven’t got a smile on your face when you arrive there’s a strong chance you’ll have one when you leave.

Rip your stuff

The hardwood dance floor provides scope-a-plenty for you to rip your lindy hop, balboa, swing and jive.

Next Event

The next  Joint’s a Hoppin’ is on  Friday 19th of April – and what a night this will be!  Yes, we have with us again the very special Man Overboard Quartet. No fear of drowning though, nor even need for rescue, unless you have a dread of enjoying yourself too much. This whether you’re dancing, or just listening to this gathering of superb musicians. For our event they will be splicing up a dance set leaving you in no doubt that they know how to swing it up hot or cool it down right cosy. The quartet features front men Ewan Bleach on reeds and special guest Peter Rudeforth (Chris Barber Band) on cornet with a hot rhythm section comprising Jean-Marie Fagon on guitar and Tom Wheatley on double bass. Check out the quintet on their web site [ http://manoverboardswing.co.uk/our_music/ ].   DJ Flat Foot Al will be piping the musical changes onboard in between sets, so how can you do other than have one ripping dance & social night, whether you’re Hopping, Bal’ing, Swinging, Shagging or Jiving any old way. So, truck on down and join us for your finely fettled fix of swing and jive.

Entry:  £12:00 on the door.
