About Southpaw Slim:

Lee and the band will be playing a selection of blues music from the likes of Muddy Waters, Jimmy Reed and many more.

Expect Chicago shuffles, slow blues ballads and a few up-tempo tracks to get your toes tapping!


No dance partner required. In the taster class everyone will be encouraged to dance both roles.


Please make sure that all food and drink consumed onsite (except for water) is purchased at The Klondyke. The Klondyke supports local not-for-profit organisations, such as ours, by offering an affordable venue and runs entirely on bar sales, so please support our venue.

If you would like to volunteer to man the door, DJ, or even teach, please get in touch via this event or the Honey Blues Dancing page.



We are a welcoming and inclusive community. We subscribe to the S.T.E.P.S. code, which promotes appropriate conduct at dance events, and can be found at the link below. Inappropriate behaviour will not be tolerated.


What is an 'all levels class'?
Our classes are all multi-level, like a yoga class, in that we offer options for you to add extra things if you're wanting to challenge yourself but they're always accessible to complete beginners. In our classes everyone dances with everyone & learns to both lead & follow.

What is 'social dancing'?
The best part of the night, we DJ great blues music & people dance! Don't worry, we'll teach plenty of things you can use on the floor or just stay & chat
if you don't want to dance. If you want to dance & don't know who to ask, come & ask us - we can either dance with you (if we're free) or introduce you to someone friendly to dance with

**We have a zero tolerance policy on harassment, everyone has a right to enjoy themselves free of racist, sexist, homophobic & transphobic abuse. Please see our code of conduct for more info.**
