Dance Community

We all know that it is tough at the moment to find something uplifting to say about the dance world, but there is positive news out there, and that's why we created Jivebeat Radio. This is a community radio station for dancers and dance organisers, and a place where we can share our music, our stories, our announcements, our concerns, and just to keep in touch with our classes or teachers whilst we can't get things back to normal.

So tell us your stories. Tell us what's going on. Tell us what you are doing or what you hope to be doing soon, and we will give you a shout out on the radio. There's no charge for this (as some people seem to think this is about money) - it's a community resource that we are offering the dance community as a whole, just because we can. And maybe it can help.

This was set up by Tangosynthesis so it comes from neotango roots, but it doesn't matter if your style is modern jive, salsa, ballroom, street, traditional tango, swing... all are welcome here. So drop us a line by emailing studio@jivebeat.dance and we will get your message out there.

When we are all able to meet again in person, come and join us at Tangosynthesis for dancing, music, and some much needed social interaction.
