Tacky Annie’s Swing Dance Club was set up about 10 years ago by a group of friends and swing dancers in south east Kent who wanted to continue to learn and practise the lindy hop and balboa. The club met on Wednesdays at the Royal British Legion Hall in Hythe. Maggie and Geoff  ran classes there until May 2017. The club then moved to a monthly class and dance at Keppel’s Music Room in The Grand on the Leas in Folkestone where Maggie and Geoff  taught improvers lindy and balboa. This closed at the end of 2018.

Maggie and Geoff are now available for private lessons on request.
