What’s On? (Social Dancing and Performances)

Social Dancing at Mersey Swings Winter Ball
Social Dancing at Mersey Swing’s Winter Ball 2014

Social Dancing

No need to pre-book tickets, just turn up at the door with a smile, shoes you can dance in and be prepared to enjoy yourself. Everyone who wants to dance is welcome.

Upcoming Events

We hold a weekly social on a Wednesday night from 8:30pm to 9:30pm following our classes. If you attended the class, the cost of the social is included in the class fee (£4/6), but to just attend the social is £3.

We often have FREE Social Dancing in Liverpool on a weekend evening. We currently are in the process of arranging our next social dance, so please watch this space or our Facebook page.
