Anything from a full high energy 45 minute show with up to 8 costumed dancers and audience participation - to a 2 or 3 dance performance slot or maybe just one number. From a single fun taster class - to a couple of more specialist sessions through to a whole course of lessons.
Our speciality is performing and teaching dance styles from the 1920’s through to the 1950’s - we are twice UK champions. Although our main dance is the Lindy Hop, we can provide lessons and/or costumed cabaret in dances such as The Charleston, Jitterbug, Rock’n’Roll, The Big Apple (a social/party dance from the ‘20’s & ‘30’s) and many other sorts of swing & jive dance. These great, fun dance styles from the past are now growing again in popularity.
Add an extra dimension to your event - choose from one or more of the following:

High-powered performance numbers in costume - dynamic choreographed routines to set tracks. Great for slots in between band sets at your event or to add to the atmosphere of a themed evening. One to six numbers. We can also provide several dancers - up to eight - performing to fill a slot.
From a fun 15 - 45 minute taster class to give your guests some steps to try out to the band - to a course of workshops. We can work with all ages and abilities - from the very nervous to the more experienced. We emphasise the fun aspects of social dancing - our classes are relaxed, light-hearted and friendly, aiming to give people the knowledge and confidence to take to the floor.
Social dancing to a live band or D.J. to give more laid back visual interest to your event. (Without ‘Airsteps’ or choreographed routines). As before, we can supply other dancers from the Hoppin’ Mad team if needed.



Corporate functions - dinner dances - conferences - team building days - parties - birthdays - Christmas parties - Retirement parties - presentations - anniversaries - hotel events

We are experienced in all aspects of performance for film and tv. We can also provide background dancers in period costume for theatre, film & television or for jazz & music festivals - dancing to live or recorded music. Our style of Jazz & Swing dance perfectly compliments many live bands - a cabaret slot can go down well as a filler. We can also choreograph routines for your performers.
