Learn to Jive Dance at The Goods Shed whatever your skill or ability you cannot put a foot wrong. Sarah and Jim from Just Jive will be running Swing Jive lessons for beginners or those with some experience.
Beginners at 7pm and Intermediate at 8pm, each class costing £6.00 for which you pay on the door.

Swing Jive is an amalgamation of footwork-based moves with a smooth action danced to music from the 1920’s Swing era onwards, including Rock ‘n’ Roll and today’s tunes.
Formed in 1996, Just Jive are a dance company based in Gloucestershire and Wiltshire. Their teaching team has over 30 years of dancing experience and Sarah and Jim pride themselves on a friendly and relaxed approach to lessons. Jim was recently compared to Fred Astaire when he took to the floor at a recent swing night at The Goods Shed! Not a bad compliment for an ex-Paratrooper turned dancer. And Sarah is a graduate of the Just Jive School. She now lives in Tetbury and believes learning to dance has been a life changer.
So, what are you waiting for. No need to bring a partner. But please do wear comfy clothes and smooth soled shoes.
As Sarah says, “It has been proven that dancing helps improve your memory, social life and fitness. We all go to weddings and parties and see a couple dancing Rock ‘n’ Roll or Jive and wish we could have a go. Well here’s the perfect opportunity to learn in the most amazing venue”.
