20 Years of Dancing

A family run business formed in 2003. Specialising in professionally organised Modern Jive and Argentine Tango Dance Weekenders, WCS Events, Competitions and Dance Holidays, using the best National and International instructors.

In 2007, we launched the first 100% WCS weekend with the introduction of the ‘UK WCS Champs’, and became the very first World Swing Dance Council Registry Event outside the USA. Since then we have launched the UK Westie Bootcamp events and varius Intensive weekends.

Classes, Workshops and Evening Shows

Fun and friendly dance weekenders and if you want to improve your dancing in a short space of time, a Jive Addiction dance weekend could be just what you're looking for!

Jive Addiction dance holidays are carefully planned using more than 16 years of experience, because your enjoyment is the most important thing to us.

  • I wanted to say a huge thank you to John Armstrong-Holmes, Mariane Armstrong-Holmes and their fabulous team especially Licky Sure and Karen Grant for making my weekend at Westie Bootcamp South an exceptionally  memorable time.

    I don't normally do these posts after events but thought I would make an exception for this one and give a few shout outs as I didn't get around to doing the envelopes (I will make the effort next year I promise !!!!)

    Out of all the weekenders I have done over the past 15 odd years, this one has been by far my fave. Huge thanks to Glenn Ball, John Armstrong-Holmes and the JA team for creating the concept and running this event. The pro shows were off the scale.

    Looking forward to next year !!!

  • Absolutely marvellous. Never had such a group of people get on so well together. Thank u everyone.xx
