At Spencer's Wood Village Hall
Join our 2020 programme
Basingstoke Road, Spencer's Wood, RG7 1AP - almost RG7 1AE
This is a lovely historic venue on the southern edge of Reading, just 2 mins from the M4, well maintained and full of character with a sprung wooden dance floor. We also use this venue for Juke Joint and Goody Goody social dance events.
Immediately south of Three Mile Cross follow the old Basingstoke Rd and at the brow of the hill you will find the hall. It sits between the church and the Farriers Arms pub at the corner of Clares Green Rd. Parking is both on-site and on Clares Green Rd.
Weekly Lindy Hop Classes 7.00 to 9.10 pm
7.00 Lindy Hop Level 1 (60 mins)

Welcome To Spencer's Swing
What a great way to spend a fun Sunday evening in a historical village hall!
Learn to Swing Dance with Reading's most experienced and accomplished Lindy Hop couple, Debra and John.
We don't do exams - we do fun. We recognise that every student improves at their own speed. We are here to patiently coach and encourage you along the road. Whether you want to push yourself hard or just enjoy the journey we shall support you.
Nobody begins dancing as a skilled dancer. Our public classes aim to get you dancing at a social level, not at a competition level. You can expect to improve your balance, spacial awareness and general fitness: all great reasons why people get hooked on the benefits of social swing dancing. And if you find that your friends and family are impressed by your new skills at the next gathering then that is a bonus.
We want you to cross the fun threshold not the pain threshold. We ask every student to be aware of their limitations and fitness level and to dance within their physical limitations.
