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

Our next social dance is on Friday 29th  November2019. What a night, and what a band we have lined up for you. Yes, we have with us the very special Cable Street Rag Band. With front men Ewan Bleach on reeds & vocals, Will Scott on reeds, ‘Dakota’ Jim Ydstie on accordion & vocals and a hot rhythm section featuring John Kelly on guitar and Louisa Jones on bass & vocals this will be a wow. The highly versatile CSRB will be playing classic swinging material at tempos well tailored to your various dance needs.
