Running The Dance Society
Ralph & June are a husband and wife partnership who live and breathe Jive Dancing,
especially to the Swing music created by the jazz and big bands from the 20th century. They decided to start the Swing Dance Society in Surrey when they found they were having to travel 50 miles or more in an evening to get to a suitable venue with music that they enjoyed.
