Pinball Paul

Our dance club was established in the Huntingdon and Peterborough areas in 2006 for people wanting dance classes to learn the original Lindyhop / Jitterbug / Jive.

Come along and learn to swing dance to music from the 1930's to current style swing and Big Bands found at many hangar dances, parties and music clubs.

Set up by Paul and Fae we encourage people of all ages to try out and have fun learning dances of the 1930's/1940's era.

Informal classes in a friendly atmosphere mean a great evening out where you can meet friends; have a laugh and gain some exercise all at the same time!

We aim to have all visitors to our club dancing within their first hour of attending classes and being able to progress at their own rate.

No partner is required, as we normally rotate the class to improve lead and follow (which also adds to the social element too).

One of the hottest dances on the scene!

As seen in the final of the BBC’s “Strictly Come Dancing” 2009,“Strictly Dance Fever” in 2005/2006, performed in “Strictly Come Dancing” in 2008, danced at Hangar Dances across the country, Lindyhop is the original fun and heart pumping form of Jive, danced to lively music ranging from 1920’s Big Bands to current top action Swing Bands.

The earliest form of Swing/Jive/Rock ‘n’ Roll, it includes an eclectic mixture of simple and flashy moves, many based on the dances of the roaring 20’s, with an injection of new steps and styling from its resurgence in London, New York and Sweden in the 1980’s.

It has not only swept the nation, but is now also danced all over the world by nationalities caught by the bug of this fun and crazy dance.

So, if you love those hip and swinging jazz tunes, this is the dance to do.


We also teach “Collegiate Shag” classes - another fun and enlivening dance style of the 1930’s era (perhaps overshadowed by the famous “Charleston”); danced to up-tempo music ranging from traditional Dixieland style jazz to Swinging bands of all eras.


We have our own authentic period clothing from the 1930’s, 1940’s and 1950’s so we can offer our services for re-enactment events, films & TV, schools & more!

We can  provide performance demonstrations for your event: for example, it may be a corporate event, wedding, birthday, 40's event, music video, or whatever you would like, to add a special "swing" to the event. We can even teach a fun class to have your guests dancing within 30 minutes!

Posin'...... Everybody pose!
