Upcoming Events

A Night At The Movies

Our June freestyle is on Tuesday, 25th April at 8pm, and we'll be announcing our theme shortly.

 

As always, entry is £7.50 cash on the door, but there's a cashpoint at Asda a minute away if you need it, and there is plenty of free parking. 

The following freestyle will be Tuesday, 30th July, and we'll confirm the theme shortly.

 

 

 

We'll update here with future events, and you can join our Facebook group for regular updates too.

A Night at the Movies

We love a dressing up theme, and since we had so much fun at our last Night at the Movies event, we decided to go again! Click through below to see a few of the photos from the night.

Mad March Freestyle

For our end of the month freestyle in March, we decided on a Mad March theme, with a Weird and Wonderful dress code. To keep the theme open to everyone, we invited anyone who didn't want to dress up weird to come as their most wonderful selves - although as you'll see from the photos, there were some fabulously weird costumes!

Valentine's Dance 2024

Our traditional annual Valentine's Dance took place on Valentine's Eve this year, and we could definitely feel the  love on the dancefloor! Unfortunately, our resident photographer was poorly, and so our photos this time are more of the point and shoot variety from our phones - but they still look great! Click through below to see them.

Bin The Gym Freestyle

January is always a time of getting back to fitness and our eating habits, but the gym can be so dull. As all dancers know, the dancefloor is a much better place to raise our cardio fitness... and so we decided that our first freestyle of the year would be a sports themed freestyle. Not only did we get the expected football rivalry, we had some other awesome outfits! Click through to see the photos from the night.

Glitter Ball

Our final evening of 2023 was our annual Glitter Ball freestyle event, and what a fabulous night we had! There were sequins, rhinestones, sparkles, and glitter absolutely everywhere - and the atmosphere was fantastic. Click through to see photos.

Masquerade

As our November freestyle night fell close to the start of the festive season, we decided this one should help us all get in the mood - and with a little glamour, a mask, and some awesome tunes, we definitely did that! Click through to see the photos.

Halloween Party

When there's a chance to get dressed up in fancy dress, Love 2 Jive dancers take full advantage of it - we absolutely love it, and there's plenty of evidence to prove it! This year's Halloween Party was no exception. Click through to see photos.

Skool Daze

With September incoming fast, our end of August freestyle was Skool Daze, a back to school theme. And what an absolutely phenomenal time we had. Over 90 dancers were in attendance to make the evening one that we'll remember for a long time to come.

The Love2Jive Summer Ball

The Love2Jive Summer Ball is always a really popular event, and this year's was no exception. As usual, the bright colours, florals, swimwear, and even Baywatch employees(!) were out in force. Click the button below to see photos and videos from the night.

Tea Dance at St Mary's

As anticipated, St Mary's Church in Fratton was an absolutely spectacular venue, and the Tea Dance on 16th July was brilliant. 80 dancers - both new to modern jive and seasoned regulars - came out to dance for a few hours. Click through to the blog to see more.

Coronation Dance

When there's an excuse for a theme night, it is a bit rude not to really, isn't it? So naturally, we went with the red, white, and blue theme for the week before the Coronation of King Charles and Queen Camilla. Around 80 dancers packed the hall, and there were some absolutely brilliant outfits, with most getting into the party spirit.

Modern Jive Classics v2.0

We had such an awesome time during our first ever Modern Jive Classics freestyle in March - as well as Andy having plenty more classics to line up on his playlist - that we decided that we'd go again for our end of the month freestyle in April. More great tunes, more great dancers, more great times had by all!

Modern Jive Classics

For the end of March freestyle night, we decided on a 'Modern Jive Classics' night, which was all about the music - classic tunes from across the decades. Andy did us proud, with some absolute crackers, and there were well over 60 dancers in attendance that kept the dancefloor busy right up until the last track.

Double Trouble Treats!

Our theme night for February was Double Trouble - which is a guy dancing with two ladies at once! Tim, Anne, and Sandra taught the lesson during the intermediate slot at 9pm. Prior to that, our new instructor Sally led us through her first class with us - we're delighted to have her on board! Click through to see photos and read more.

Valentine's Day: Wear Red

Our annual Valentine's Day Wear Red event was a brilliant night, full of brand new dancers, dancers that were new to dancing with us, and dancers that we'd not seen in a while... Photos and a short video are up on the blog now - check it out by clicking on the button below.

A Night at the Movies
 

Our first ever night of A Night at the Movies was a huge success - we decided we all needed something to look forward to at the end of January, and didn't we just?! Over 50 dancers came out, with most making a great effort to dress up. Andy's playlist kept the dancefloor very busy! See more photos by visiting the blog - hit the button below.

The Annual Glitter Ball

This year again, our Glitter Ball was a great night! Andy played many of his usual festive tunes, as well as many requests. We hired the large hall for this event so Andy was up on the stage, giving everyone more room for dancing.

Halloween Dance

Our 'Halloween' Dance night on Tuesday 25 October 2022 was well attended. We were very pleased to see so many people, and we hope everyone enjoyed the evening as much as we did. Some brilliant costumes were on show!


Although we invite our dancers to wear costumes for our themed events, we know that there are quite a few people who don't like to dress up, so we want everyone to know you're welcome, dressed up or not!
