15 Years of Dancing

A family run business formed in 2003. Specialising in professionally organised Dance Weekenders, WCS Events, Competitions and Dance Holidays, using the best National and International instructors.

In 2007, we launched the first 100% WCS weekend with the introduction of the ‘UK WCS Champs’, and became the very first World Swing Dance Council Registry Event outside the USA. 

Classes, Workshops and Evening Shows

Fun and friendly dance weekenders and if you want to improve your dancing in a short space of time, a Jive Addiction dance weekend could be just what you're looking for!

Jive Addiction dance holidays are carefully planned using more than 10 years of experience, because your enjoyment is the most important thing to us.

  • I have mad respect for the way Europeans in general (and Brits :P) attack wcs! I love how they ask for a second dance... like giving me the benefit of the doubt, the hospitality is always unreal, and I would rarely sit a song. I can't wait to make my way back to the UK!

    UK EU Champs 2017

  •  I had a fabulous weekend - I'm missing the luxury of the hotel already and I loved the different rooms we had our classes in, especially the chapel, wow! 

  • The UK WCS Championships is a major event in this environment and after 11 years, it loses nothing of its richness because thanks to its promoter John Armstrong-Holmes, who seeks all the time to renew itself, he proposes to everyone the same thing, to share His passion for WCS.

  • Had a fabulous time over the weekend at the UK & European WCS Champs. Thanks John , Mariane, crew, DJs, teachers.... Was great fun to just enjoy the weekend, watching the competitions and shows was so inspirational and I feel motivated to improve. Thanks to everyone who competed, was fabulous to watch you all.
