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.
Feel hornswoggled by covid-19 no more! Yes, our first post-lockdown event is on Friday July 30th and we have such a band lined up for you.
