Rock Bottoms Cheeky Little Weekenders

Hev, Tor, Andy and Jon have been together running Rock Bottoms since 2002, and love doing it. You'll see lots of them throughout your stay as they put a huge amount of time, energy and enthusiasm into your holiday.

Specialising in Modern Jive, Tango, Lindy Hop and West Coast Swing - if you like dancing, you'll love Rock Bottoms. Whether you want to dance 'til three, or focus on workshops, or party with friends, or meet new people, or just want to enjoy the lovely location and relax here at TLH – do as you please – Rock Bottoms has it all. Holidays attract a rich mix, from the quite normal (they don't always stay that way) to the larger than life characters who get the party going. Individuals, couples and groups all mingle together in a happy atmosphere.

Weekend programmes usually include workshops all day on Saturday & Sunday catering for all levels from improver upward. Freestyles each night, often with sparkling cabaret.


Riviera Swing

An unforgettable weekend of 1930s and 1940s vintage entertainment, hosted by "Viv the Spiv" featuring the New Squadronaires, the Alex Mendham Orchestra, Duncan Galloway and his Rhythmic 6 and Derek Webber.

Whatever your dance style – whether it's Quickstep, Fox Trot, Waltz, Lindy, or Balboa – Riviera Swing's top DJs will cater to all styles. They might even throw in some period party dances – ever fancied trying your hand at the Palais Glide? The Valeta? How about The Lambeth Walk? Dance teachers Mark & Hoc Ewing, aided and abetted by Bryan & Lou Webb and Rob Be Bop & Julie, will be on hand to show you how.
