Balboa, Gangsters, Molls and Important News

Balboa Workshop in SE20 for Gangsters and Molls

This coming Saturday 12th May will be a special night At Hollywood Boogie at The Royston in South London.

The evening begins at 19.30 with a balboa workshop with the awesome Nikki Santilli. So come early and spend the first hour honing your balboa ready for the evening ahead.

At 20.30 we will have our usual Hollywood Boogie night with the usual mix of music suitable for balboa, lindyhop, swing and jive but with a Gangster and Moll theme.


News About The Royston – Bad News and Hopefully Good News

June 2nd will be the last Hollywood Boogie at The Royston Ballroom until further notice. The Penge & District Trade Union and Social Club building which houses The Royston has changed hands and is under new management. The new management intend keeping a dance venue on site but are doing a major refurb of the building so it will close while works take place.

So the bad news is that June 2nd will be the last time you can get your fix of top foot-stomping jive, hot swing and boogie woogie tunes from DJ Pat Da Kat at The Royston for the time being but the good news is that the venue is having a face lift and we will hopefully be back to an even better venue later on. For those that don’t know The Royston was once the home of the legendary Peggy Spencer Dance School and Pat Da Kat has been proud to keep the spirit of dance going in this venue.

So if you are one of our regulars or have not yet taken advantage of the sprung wooden floor, social club bar prices and easy free parking then don’t miss these last two nights and come on down to SE20 and party with us.

Here’s a taste of balboa at The Royston.
