SLADE GREEN COMMUNITY CENTER
Bridge Road, Erith (Dartford), DA8 2HS
At the Spitfire Bounce you will enjoy a fantastic night of 1940's and early 1950's dance music.
Great dance floors with plenty of room for dancers and seating for non-dancers.
Entry at both these dances is now only £7.00 each payable on the door.
There will be free tea, coffee, squash and doughnuts at both dances. You may bring your own drinks if you want to.
Spitfire Bounce will take you back to a time when during and after WWII people came together to have fun dancing, listening to the music of the era. To forget the worries of the day. We are attempting to bring back that wonderful community feeling of these dances so everyone can have a great time (like they all did back then). In doing this we are hoping to generate interest in the music, fashion and general friendliness of times gone by. Hoping that it will continue to become more and more popular with the younger generations of today. At all these dances you will receive a friendly and homely welcome, there will be FREE Tea, Coffee, Squash and Doughnuts. Most of the participants also bring along some nibbles to put on the table that they are sitting at. This all leads to a great friendly party atmosphere for all involved.
Along with JEFF "TWO-TONE BOOGIE" working the decks we will also have TWO gueat DJ's at every dance, in doing so bringing you various styles of DJ'ing as well as music from the era. At our first dance (April 14th 2007) we had PAUL CROOK and NATASHA HALL (UK Lindy Hop Champions) giving a dance demonstration. There will be experienced dancers at each dance and if you want to learn to dance then just ask and they will be happy to share their skill and knowledge with you. Alternatively you may wish to join one of the many dance classes that have flyers on our flyers table or listed on our Links page. Also on our flyers table and links page you will find many details of various dances / events / dance classes etc. There will also be stalls at each dance selling a wide range of goods from original / repro clothing, collectables, music etc etc.
You do not need to be an experienced dancer or have the correct clothing to come along to these dances. Just come along knowing that you will be welcomed and have a great night out.
In doing organising these dances we feel very proud that we are, with yourselves raising money for THE NOT FORGOTTEN ASSOCIATION who are a very worth-while charity helping all veterans of past and current wars.
All we want is for everyone who comes along to one of these dances to have a GREAT NIGHT of DANCING, MUSIC and ATMOSPHERE.
We sincerley hope you all enjoy your nights out at THE SPITFIRE BOUNCE.
Please feel free to contact us at any time.
KIND REGARDS and BEST WISHES
