Fancy some dancing in the fabulous retro Rivoli Ballroom – with a live band, DJs filling in and a beginners’ jive lesson to kick the evening into swing? Our ever-popular monthly Saturday nights have a lively buzz, great jive, swing and original R&B music.

Jive Party is for beginners and experts alike, at The Rivoli Ballroom, Lewisham in London. We’re usually there on the 3rd Saturday in the month (exceptions being February and August). Jive Party is run by dance enthusiasts who book the venue and the bands, promote and organise the nights.
