Hot Ginger’s Summer Smackdown – if you know your Scoot Steps from your Pop Turns or you’re keen to learn, then you need to Crab Walk your way down to the H&H this Saturday for an evening of 1920s Balboa dancing. Paddle along to the vintage sounds of swing and jazz as the UK’s hottest swing DJs spin some crackly 78s. There’s even a dance class during the afternoon to get your Bal-Swing mojo on. Great fun, cool vintage fashion and as much Maxie Basic as your dancing feet can stand. Don’t take any wooden nickels daddio!
Sat 9 Jul, Hare & Hounds, 106 High Street, Kings Heath, Birmingham, B14 7JZ, 8pm, £8 (Dance class is 1pm – 5pm and costs £15). www.hotginger.org
