The Vintage Swing Collective Dancers


Authentic vintage dancers alongside our swing and jazz bands.

Energetic and interactive. Giving you a party to remember!

The Vintage Swing Collective is a unique collaboration between top UK vintage band Down for the Count All-Stars and our amazing, energetic dance troupe. 

If you’re planning an event with a vintage theme, the Vintage Swing Collective will bring it to life as our musicians and dancers work together to create an incredible, interactive experience. Having our vintage dancers to help your guests get up on the dance floor is a sure-fire way to make the most of having a swing band at your event.

Our live musicians and dancers can offer the following:

A choreographed live show from the vintage dancers backed by live musicians (5 to 20 minutes, depending on number of performers)

A simple, fun and interactive vintage swing dance lesson (usually about 20 to 30 minutes long) to get your guests involved

Interactive dance floor experience – with dancers getting your guests on the floor with simple vintage dance moves and group dancers

Our dancers can also help you choreograph your first danceget in touch for more information. 

We can perform as a small or large group. The possibilities start from a pair of dancers with our 6-piece Get Downs Lite Band, all the way up to a troupe of 12 dancers with our 22-piece big band. And, if you think that you might not want vintage music all night long, you can let the dancers put their feet up and get the party band switch to soul, Motown and pop music later on.

If you want to party like it’s the 1920s, this is the group for you – get in touch today and let’s start planning your vintage party.

  • The vintage dancers were both so friendly, welcoming and fun and put all the guests at ease immediately. Their energy and talent was a joy to watch and contagious, as it encouraged everyone to want to join in on the dance floor.

A Corporate event with The Vintage Swing Collective

Mike Paul-Smith music have provided live bands across the world. One of the most unforgettable events we’ve been involved in was creating a live music and vintage dance entertainment package for Dell, who were holding their annual staff awards in Marrakech, Morocco. 

Working in collaboration with the client we developed a 1920s entertainment package including our 6-piece 1920s band The Lady Gatsby Jazz Band and a fabulous troupe of 12 interactive swing dancers.

  • All our guests made for the dance floor and were thoroughly entertained and I can't recommend them highly enough. Delightful people and they certainly add value to your event!
