Swingaree is a regular swing and jazz social that happens monthly on a Wednesday, with a free taster dance class from 8pm, and a live band from 9pm!

People begin to arrive at 7pm to grab a drink and catch up (or 6 pm if you wish to attend the LUSS Xmas party -see note below – all welcome). Then from 8pm – 9pm, there’s a taster dance class for all levels of skill, ran by the wonderful folk at Leicester University Swing Society (LUSS), who also run regular dance classes should you get the (jitter)bug! https://www.facebook.com/groups/362857170761668/

On Wednesday 12th December it’s our Swingaree Christmas Special, with the incredible University Of Leicester Big Band!

With over 20+ members, the band play a selection of traditional jazz and swing standards, along with re-imagined modern classics. If you’re a fan of Post Modern Jukebox, you’ll adore them.

And they’ll be fresh off the stage at The Royal Albert Hall for this show! https://www.facebook.com/uolbigband/

NOTE: LUSS also have an Xmas party at the Shed on the same night at the Shed from 6 pm (before Swingaree starts). All are welcome to join, members and non-members. There will be dancing, food and games, more details here: https://www.facebook.com/events/312475212694711/

No partners needed! You can come alone, just with your dancing shoes.

This event is 14+, with under 16s accompanied by an adult.

The event is free entry from 7pm – 8pm, and £3 on the door afterwards. You can register your interest, but this does not guarantee your entry.

Next event: Wednesday 23rd January!
