About DJam

19 -21 January - 2018

Get the party swinging with a weekend of dancing, learning new moves and partying the night away at DJam’s 11th annual Swing Dance Festival.

Join us for a weekend of Lindy Hop, Balboa and other dance taster sessions in Durham’s most beautiful country house hotel. Learn from inspiring dance teachers and get into the groove of all things swing at Beamish Hall Country Hotel.

What Makes DJam so Special?

We know you love to take your dancing to the next level and have fun, so we do everything we can to make sure you get the best of both.

Plenty of practice time

No need to rush from one workshop to the next, without the time to find your feet. We’ve built in half an hour’s practice at the end of each workshop to help you really get to grips with what you’ve just learned and try out your new dancing skills.

Amazing venue

You'll love the DJam venue! Big, bright, spacious and beautiful rooms with great dance floors to get your feet moving.

Incredible teachers

We choose our teachers very, very carefully. We only invite those that we love learning from and who love social dancing with everybody in the evenings.

Small class sizes

Plenty of space to practice and more personal attention from your talented teachers.

Space for social dancing

Swing out your partner to your heart’s content in generous dance spaces and enjoy plenty of social dancing fun.

Get more from your dance workshops

It’s hard to cram an entire dance workshop into an hour, so we have extended them to an hour and a half, so you get the most out of each class.

All under one roof

No need to dash between venues then stagger back to your room. Dance, learn, practice, chat and stay all in one place. DJam is your dance community.
