17 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. 

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 10 years of experience, because your enjoyment is the most important thing to us.

  • Fantastic event. I hope it'll be my first of many.

  • Still on a high from my first Hemsby Dance Weekender experience - just awesome! Absolutely loved the Blues Room........fabulous atmosphere and an excellent mix of tunes to work with....I'm completely hooked! 

  • Yacht Club did it for me, wonderful teacher's, awesome music and fabulous leads. Really enjoyed the weekend, thanks too for the giggles and shared eating experience with lovely friends. Big thanks to all the Jive Addiction team xx Thelma Quince

    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 !!!
