To raise funds for Macmillan Cancer support a group of jive enthusiasts in Orkney are putting together a fun event.
Let’s Dance will take place on Sunday July 15th in the Standing Stones Hotel from 7 – 10pm. There is even a free jive class on before it at 6pm. Cost is £5 with bairns getting in free.
The Orkney Jivers have all been learning to jive for a number of months now with beginners classes being held in The Hope, Kirkwall and Stenness.
Some have travelled to Thurso to experience their ‘Live Jive’ afternoons to raise money for local charities. They have several bands playing for 3 hours, all kinds of music with the focus being on jive.
A few of the Orkney contingent had spoken about getting something similar going here in the islands. The 3 groups have now collaborated and got something together for Orkney.
Orkney Jiver Julie O’Neill said:
“This event is open to everyone, some may just want to come and watch and listen to the music and some may want to come and dance.
“Its good fun, plenty of exercise and a great way to raise some money for charity. There’s even a free jive lesson before the dance begins. “
