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

    European Swing Challenge 2018 is an event like no others.
    Last weekend, I just had a blast. I remembered that I had a great time the year before, so that’s why I’ve made quite a last minute decision to go there.

    The entire event is a big competition with 5 rounds of challenges. So one would think this creates a competitive environment. Surprisingly not at all, it actually creates a social atmosphere during the whole day. People practicing solo routines together, helping and supporting each other. Such a great idea! Fantastic learning experience.
    The event has a nice social feeling and not because of late night dancing, but because of dancing on the workshops and comps. I love the WCS community that makes this possible.

  •  I had a fabulous weekend - I'm missing the luxury of the hotel already and I loved the different rooms we had our classes in, especially the chapel, wow! 

  • I think UK Champs is a must go event next year, not to mention that it is going to be a 10th anniversary! 

  • First dance weekend amazing time thanks to John and all the staff. Nick Cornish

  • Awesome weekend, I cannot express how much I loved the "Steal the Show" on Sunday! A great opportunity to learn off some of the best teachers and choreographers... So impressed with how much was accomplished by all the teams in such a short space of time. Thanks!
