for all things Swing-Jive,

Lindy Hop, 1940's & 1950's

Esther & David  are long-established teachers of
Swing Jive, Lindy Hop & Balboa covering Suffolk & beyond.


Whilst no longer offering such classes, they continue to host regular
Wednesday evening social / practice sessions at Stratford St. Mary,
plus organise Stomps / Tea-dances, & attend other venues.

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

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

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