Welcome to All Jazzed Up
THE WEBSITE FOR SWING DANCERS IN READING & THE SURROUNDING AREA
Swing dance is the general term for a variety of partnered dances including Jive, Jitterbug, Lindy Hop, Balboa and Charlesdon, danced to the swing music of the late 1930s through to present day.
We run fun and friendly classes for dancers of all levels so if you’ve never danced a step or have been swing dancing for some time, we have a class for you. No need to bring a partner! Many of our students come along on their own. It is a great way to meet new friends and a fun way to keep in shape!
All Jazzed Up holds regular events in Lindy Hop, Balboa and Charleston. We are constantly updating the site with news on exciting swing dancing events so please make sure you sign up to our mailing list for the latest info.
The All Jazzed Up Vintage Dance Performance Group – The Footloose Floozies and The Barrelhouse Cats are available to help your party or corporate event go with a swing. We are happy to help in organising dance-related activities from hen parties to corporate events and team building exercises.
