for all things Swing-Jive,

Lindy Hop, 1940's & 1950's
Esther & David  are well known, long-established teachers of Swing Jive, & also
include Lindy Hop plus some Balboa in their classes covering Suffolk & beyond.


2 evenings a week (at 2 venues) we run courses of about 14 weeks, for 3 styles —
Swing JiveLindy Hop (mostly 6-count)  &  Balboa (beginner / intermediate)

David — a.k.a.  "Texas Tommy"  is one of the few dedicated 1940's / 1950's Swing DJ's in
East Anglia, & is available to hire for anything with a 1940's or 1950's theme, including Dances,
Private Parties, Proms, Weekend Events, etc.  You can hire just the DJ, or the full package where
we decorate your chosen venue with period flags & bunting, to give it that authentic 40's or 50's feel.

Esther is an accomplished seamstress, with years of experience in reproducing period clothes
for both men & ladies on the 1940's / 50's scene, where she trades as  "Esther's Originals"

David & Esther both love to wear period clothes, & are seldom seen out wearing anything modern.
