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.
The next Joint’s a Hoppin’, on Friday 28th of February, features the furmidable Ballroom Cats. I’ve got a feline you’ll find them irresistible. You may well need 9 lives for this one, if only because you’ll feel drawn to dance to everything they play. This international swing combo features Jean-Marie Fagon on rhythm guitar, Louisa Jones on vocals and double bass, Christian Ludwig Mayer on accordion, James Scannell on clarinet and special guest Peter Rudeforth on cornet. They’ll be ready, willing and able to tailor tempo and feel to suit every swing dance style! Check out a selection of their stuff: https://www.ballroomcats.com/have-a-listen.html .

With DJ Flat Foot Al supporting, be sure that whatever your swing dance or jive preferences, we will be serving up some great sounds for you.
