• The Hot Club

A friendly, welcoming social dance experience

We believe that social dancing should be a relaxed and easy-going event, where people make new friends, mix with old ones and get to enjoy good music and dancing.

The aim of our social dances is to bring together live music, DJ sets and taster sessions in vintage dance and provide a social experience like no other. We don't care where or what you dance, what you wear or how good you are, we only want you to come and have a good time with us.

We feature tasters in Balboa, Collegiate Shag, Lindy hop and jazz steps, as well as carefully curated set lists of recorded music from the 1930s, 40s and 50s. Every single song is a surefire hit and guaranteed to get you dancing. We also feature our house band 'the Retrobates',  seen in our Hot Club video, on a regular basis and as well as guest appearances from other high-quality live musicians.

Book a Hot Club for your event!

The Retrobates are also available to book as a package with Red & Ginger if you want us to bring our Hot Club to you. They perform a fresh mix of classic swing and rock & roll as well as some 'vintage modern' reworkings of recent numbers. Every arrangement is their own and when they combine with the energy and style of Red & Ginger's Hot Vintage Dance, you're guaranteed to have an event to top all others.

We'll bring Lindy hop and Charleston performances as well as vintage dance tasters and workshops, all set to the best in live music.
