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’ is on Friday November 26th, when we will again be bringing the best of live swing music to your door. On this occasion we feature 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. 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 Peter Rudeforth on cornet/trumpet, Gustavo Clayton-Marucci on reeds and a hot rhythm section comprising Louisa Jones (double bass and vocals) and John Kelly on guitar. Check out the quintet on their web site to get a feel for what’s on offer [http://manoverboardswing.co.uk/our_music/ ]. Combined with DJ Spinnin’ Jim’s musical distillate, this will make for one sizzling night, with music to suit all swing & jive styles.
