About DJam

24-26 January - 2020

Get the party swinging with a weekend of dancing, learning new moves and partying the night away at DJam’s 13th annual Swing Dance Festival.

Join us for a weekend of Lindy Hop and other dance taster sessions in Durham City’s excellent venues, all within a short walking distance from the train station. Learn from inspiring dance teachers and get into the groove of all things swing!

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 venues

You'll love the city centre venues as they are all within a short walk from each other, thus allowing you to enjoy the views of this beautiful, historic city. Please note that we used to be based in a country hotel and now, for DJam 2019, we are based in Durham City centre. 

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.
