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.

  • Uk Champs is always a special event for me. It has a unique and friendly atmosphere full of passion for wcs and professional at the same time. Great parties, excellent workshops, memorable competitions and shows.

  • What an absolutely fabulous weekend!! I really needed that :) 
    We had soooo much fun! Saturday still has me smiling from ear to ear and I cant wait to go again!!

  • The UK WCS Championships is a major event in this environment and after 11 years, it loses nothing of its richness because thanks to its promoter John Armstrong-Holmes, who seeks all the time to renew itself, he proposes to everyone the same thing, to share His passion for WCS.

  • Yes, wonderful event. I loved every single class I attended this weekend (and I took all I could, only missed one and a half class on Sunday as I was too exhausted by then to wake up early). Great idea to have the title of the classes mentioned before hand, and the fact that it was all flowing and building up from one to the next. Intensive was super interesting.

    Social dances was super amazing, best one I had in a very, very long time (messing up my sleeping plans, but so worth it!)
