Berkshire Swing Dance



A lovely vintage hall and free parking.

Swing Jive at St Luke's Parish Hall

Tuesdays from 7.15 pm

COMBINE COURSES: if you want to learn both Swing Jive and Lindy Hop we can offer you a discounted package: contact us.

We also offer private tuition - call us to discuss.


Free-style dancers like to mix things up and many social dancers blend the flair and style of Lindy Hop and Charleston, Shag, etc with vintage Jive. The result is very accessible for all abilities and great fun due to it's variety and playfulness. Our Swing Jive classes use medium tempo music from the 1940s and 1950s to ease you into this flexible dance style.
