Join us for an evening of fabulous music. This is geared mainly to Balboa and faster swing dancing (Shag, etc), however there will be plenty of slower tunes for Lindy Hop or for practicing Balboa at a slower pace.

  • Dance to great swing music
  • Fabulous dance floor
  • Easy parking on site
  • Catch up with friends
  • Practice with fellow dancers
  • Experienced dancers available for extra help/tuition
  • Vintage and modern dance clips for added inspiration!

We'll play your favourites, with plenty of new ones too. If you have any special requests please let us know and we'll do our best to fit them in.

Whether you are a new beginner, an experienced dancer, or somewhere in between, please come along to practice Balboa in a relaxed and friendly environment.

Venue for Practice Nights

Gambier Parry Hall, Highnam, Gloucester, Gloucestershire, GL2 8DF. Occasionally we may use the adjacent Highnam Parish Rooms if the main hall is booked.

Experienced dancers are available for one-to-one help or tuition if you would like this. Alternatively, just come along to freestyle dance and socialise.

Please come and join us...

For beginners, we are happy to give you a little individual attention to help you get the most out of your classes. If you do not yet feel comfortable social dancing Balboa, this will be the ideal place to have a go, as we help you build confidence.

These are informal evenings when you can drop in whenever you like to practice what you have learned, freestyle dance, as well as spend time catching up with friends. Everyone is welcome, including people who want to practice Sh@g, Lindy, or other swing dance styles.

Free tea, coffee and biscuits will be available
