Where you'll be

The evening starts in our own home in Sydenham where you will be taught to dance on a real wood floor, (stiletto heels cannot be worn here). We will escort you to a popular buzzing Social Dance venue which has a large dance floor, DJ, car park & bar. It is a short drive or train journey from our home, usually in the borough of Bromley, which has good public transport links to get you back to your residence.

I had a great evening with Michele and Kevan. Such a lovely couple who looked after me so very well from the minute I was collected from the station to being dropped back there. I went on my own which was totally OK and in fact probably best as I got maximum one to one attention! Michele and Kevan made me feel relaxed and gave an excellent lesson in their home (as much as I could absorb in one go). Then the dance night we attended was great fun and helped me cement my skills/improve my confidence. Friendly crowd and lovely atmosphere there. I was quite anxious before the Experience but really there was no need, it was all fine, easily manageable and in fact great fun! Now all I have to do is keep it going! Recommend this to anyone looking to learn/improve as an individual or couple. Go for it!

As beginners, this was a lovely intro to Jive. Michelle and Kevan are absolutely wonderful people. We started with a very warm welcome in there home. One and half hour lesson, very patient and great instructors. Music well organised by professional disc jockey (Kevan). They maid the servery clear and easy to learn, develop and practice. The dance venue was more than we expected. Lots of opportunities to practice, with always different very friendly people. We finally ended up having great fun and lot more confidence. Fantastic time we had. Highly recommended. BIG THANK YOU.

What a fantastic night with Kevan and Michelle. I was made to feel welcome and relaxed from the minute I turned up. I have previously danced but I have not danced for years, the jive lesson was brilliant fun and I throughly enjoyed every minute of it. You don’t need to have any previous experience in dancing as Michelle and Kevan were lovely hosts who made every effort to make sure I had a lovely evening, which I did. Their company was exceptional. The whole evening was most definitely worth every penny i paid and I shall be looking to take part in another one as soon as I can.

Michele and Kevin were absolutely wonderful! Michele made sure I knew where to meet her and what I would need for the night and checked in with me on the days leading up to the experience. They were both so friendly and welcomed me into their home. The lesson was tailored to me specifically which made it easy to learn. They made me feel like I was one of their friends. I had so much fun and want to continue practicing so I can come back to London and dance with them again. I highly recommend this experience. It will make your trip special!

It's was a very wonderful experience of my trip. I definitely recommend everybody to join this experience. If I stay longer or next time I come, I am sure I will join again. Keven and Michele and very nice! They took care of me very well , the Jive dance is so funny, even though I don't have experience in partner dance , but you will find it very fun and easy after the learning session in their beautiful house. The dance venue is also wonderful , you have chance to dance with different people , they will teach you how to dance if they know you are new.
