Hop The Hall For March 2023 – Friday 3rd March 2023 from 8pm until Late
St Margarets Institute, 30 Polstead Road, Oxford, OX2 6TN.
Hop The Hall for March 2023 is this Friday. The dust has barely settled on Oxford Swing Festival and already there are more social dance events in Oxford. Hop The Hall is Oxford’s regular monthly social swing dance run by our friends The Oxford Lindy Hoppers. Every month on the first Friday, the various Swing Dance groups in Oxford come together. Just head to Jericho for one big Social Dance. It is one of the longest running and most established monthly events in the UK Swing Dance Calendar.
Hop the Hall is an opportunity for Lindy Hoppers to get together in Oxford to dance and chat. If you’re new to social dancing, this is the perfect place to get out on the floor in a relaxed atmosphere or listen to some great tunes played by our local DJs and occasional live bands. It is also a great way to meet other dancers fro the various class groups. It’s fun and informal.
Currently dancers are asked to bring your own water bottle. Taps are provided to fill them and there is tea coffee and Juice, as well as a pub next door if the need takes you.
How much does Hop The Hall cost
There is currently a No-Cash request for payments on the door. Tickets cost £5.
Oxford Lindy Hoppers made the decision to stop the door checks for negative Covid tests as we all adjust to the post lockdown world. Dancers are still asked to be vigilant and maintain an environment where everyone looks after each other. They are also moving away from the manned desk system which enforced the checks, and are returning to the ‘honesty system’ that was in place prior to the pandemic. This will ultimately mean a card reader will be setup on the door and all you have to do is tap it to pay your entry fee.
