Mad About Swing's Sugar Foot Stomp

Usually the first Saturday of every month

This is a dance evening suitable for dancers of all abilities. It's a great opportunity to practise the moves you've learnt and to socialise with other dancers.

Expect a chilled out and friendly atmosphere. Unless the evening has specific requirements, there's no dress code, but most people wear smart casual. Others make a real effort with suits and dresses... the choice is yours!

Tap water is provided and you're welcome to bring your own alcoholic drinks and other beverages... we'll even provide the glasses!

Our Sugar Foot Stomps usually take place on the first Saturday of every month, but this isn't always the case. Check the programme below to see what we have coming up.
