What is In Motion Dance?


In Motion Dance teach an adaptable slotted partner dance that has its roots in many different styles but has the look of west coast swing without the hard footwork. It is very easy to learn and can be danced to a very wide variety of music, making it a popular partner dance.


Do I need a partner?


No. Many people come along on their own or with friends. During the classes, we change partners frequently so that you meet everyone and get to dance with people with different styles and amounts of experience.


What should I wear?


Wear whatever you feel comfortable in. You are likely to get warm so layers are a good idea. The most important thing is that you wear shoes that will turn and spin easily on a wooden floor and that are comfortable and secure on your feet.


Do I need to book in advance?


No. You can just turn up on your first night. It is best to arrive about 7.50pm so that you can get a drink and have time to settle in before the first class.



Do we have to stay all night?


You are free to come and leave at any time. If you are a beginner, it is very beneficial to stay for the beginner recap class which runs between the two classes and usually finished by 9.15pm


I can’t make it every week. Does it matter?


No. It is not a set course and we teach different moves each week which are repeated over time.


Do you need to be fit and healthy?


Slotted Jive is a gentle form of exercise and, ‘if you can walk, you can Dance. If you have any medical issues that you have concerns about, please get in touch and we will be happy to advise you.



Exciting, easy to learn slotted partner dance, Fusion of Modern Jive & West Coast Swing without the hard footwork and can be danced to most types of music, making it really flexible for most abilities.

There’s no need to bring a partner as we partner people up at the beginning of the class and then rotate partners every few minutes – so you’ll get to meet lots of new people and it also means that when you want to dance you’ll be able to find a friendly face from the class to dance with when the freestyle starts. Please do participate in the classes and the moving round – as a beginner you may be tempted to want to stay with a friend that you came with, but if they are a beginner too, dancing solely with each other, will hinder your progression. This is because there are people of all levels of ability in the beginner’s class and dancing with as many people as possible will give you a better understanding of the lead and follow aspect of the dance. And there really is no age restriction – In Motion dancers come from all walks of life and we have people as young as 18 and as old as 80 learning to dance, but probably the average age range are 25-55.

Class nights are easy to follow without the need for a set course so no long term commitment or the worry about missing a class.

For the general classes people normally come casually dressed (people get a little more dressed up for the regular Social Dances) and it’s important that you try and wear footwear that is comfortable, but that also has a leather or suede sole. This is because there are a lot of turns and movement in the dance and if you wear rubber soled shoes like trainers your feet will stick to the floor! This will hinder your dancing and potentially damage your knees – so think footwear first and foremost. To begin with do the best you can and if you get hooked by the dancing bug, as many people do, you can buy specialist dance footwear very easily and relatively cheaply.
