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 West End Social Club (WESC), West End, 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 spacious 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 26th April. The Cable Street Rag Band will be joining us for this one, so it’s an event you won’t want to miss. They’ll be playing a repertoire of ragtime, blues and swing, suffused with a style and tone redolent of the heyday of swing dance. The CSRB is fronted by the renowned Ewan Bleach on reeds & vocals with Lewis Taylor on trumpet & vocals and a hot rhythm section featuring John Kelly on guitar and Harry Evans on bass. First set will start at 20:30h. DJ Flat Foot Al will be playing his irresistible swing and jive mix in between sets.

Entry

Cash on the door: £16.00 (£15.00 WESC members).  Students: £8 (NUS card required).  Cost includes a £1.00 supplement (paid to WESC) for non-members of WESC

Sounds

We aim to deliver the best of vibes, supported by recorded music to suit vintage dance styles – lindy hop, balboa, shag and jive. If we haven’t got it, we’ll try to get it! Give us the feedback. As things develop live bands will be slated .
