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.

  • Amazing time at Westie Bootcamp South. Knew it would be. Such friendly pro's and they all danced their socks off with most. .. had some fantastic dances :D I JUST LOVE BOOTCAMPS .xx

  • 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.
