Swingaree is a regular swing and jazz social that happens monthly on a Wednesday, with a free taster dance class followed by a live band!
People begin to arrive at 7pm to grab a drink and catch up. 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! No dance partner needed.
This month after the dance class, you can show off your new moves to The Lazy Alligator Jazz Band! They’re a group of brilliant musicians performing jazz and blues from the 1920s, with accompanying female vocalists.
You can come alone, just bring your dancing shoes (any flat shoes work best).
This event is 14+, with under 16s accompanied by an adult.
This event is £3 to attend after 7:30pm – cash only on the door but you can use card at the bar!
Next event: Wednesday 24th July, featuring Afro City Swingsters!
