RotherHop is Upbeat...

... because we're now offering the same fun, friendly classes in Rotherham and Barnsley! Please scroll down for details (including our monthly social).

We can also supply authentic 1920s-40s dance tuition to your event -- please see Events/Corporate for info!

You can learn swing dance, too...

... with fun, friendly, sociable classes suitable for beginners and old hands dusting off their dancing shoes.

Beginners are very much welcome at any point in our rolling, 10-week fundamentals course. Extra classes look at more advanced steps, social dancing and strolls.

** And your first class is ABSOLUTELY FREE! **

Please see our Facebook page or scroll down for the details!

Upbeat offers affordable dance classes...

... for adults in Rotherham and now Barnsley, too! It exists to foster a love of swing dance by hosting classes and social events in these towns.

Classes at both locations cost £5 per person, or £7 for both classes in a night.

We also run a monthly social...

... at Soho Music Institute, in central Barnsley! From 2pm to 6pm on the last Sunday of the month, Upbeat brings top tunes for swing kids, jivers and rock 'n' rollers.

If you don't dance, don't worry! There will be at least two classes included in the price of entry! (£5 for a dance ticket, £2.50 non-dancers, kids under 16 go free.)

Want even more?! Okay! Each person purchasing a dance ticket (£5) will be entered into raffles for fabulous prizes provided by our lovely sponsors.
