West Coast Vintage Bellydance

A style popularly danced in California in the 1960s and 70’s. Characterised by earthy hip work and twists and interesting footwork, this classic style is elegant and powerful all at the same time. Think strong twists, fancy footwork and elegant arm patterns. Expect technique drills that are sure to work up a sweat and burn plenty of calories, with added finger cymbal training so characteristic of the style.

In 2017 we performed at the World of Dance festival in Margate alongside many local seasoned performers as well as at Folkestone Pitch Festival.  We are experienced performers in the belly dance community with a wide repertoire of styles.  We also dance tribal style, wearing lots of vintage costumings.

Tackie Annies Swing Dance Club

We have been involved in lots of these kind of events in the past and  have worked with Holly and Victoria (The Dulcettes) quite a few times. Earlier in the year we danced for the Folkestone Community Swing band at their debut gig.

My wife Maggie and I are lindy hop dancers and teachers.  I also DJ playing music from the 1930’s to the 1950’s. We currently run a dance workshop and evening dance on the second Sunday of each month at Keppels in the Grand Hotel.

The Runaways

The Runaways were formed in 1982 with Tim Adams on rhythm guitar, Gary Bryant on lead guitar and then Ivan Thurlow on drums and still 35 years on with the new member Cliff Skinner playing on bass guitar completes The Runaways have been committed to producing a quality performance and are particularly renowned for their authentic representation of music from The Shadows, including the choreography!

In the 1980’s and 90’s the Runaways worked alongside famous names in the world of entertainment and as the backing band to original singing stars of the fifties and sixties. They also appeared as special guests on BBC radio and have made appearances on London Weekend Television and Sky TV. After receiving excellent reviews in various magazines, The Runaways signed a record deal with Polydor to release a CD in Japan and their music is now distributed to other countries. The Runaways’ album “Into the Vortex” is still available and can be purchased on the day and even signed!

The Runaways are memorable for their striking bright red guitars and those famous ‘walks’. Despite having worked with members of The Shadows and being renowned for the authenticity of their production of Shadows’ numbers, The Runaways are far more than a Shadows tribute band. They will have you rocking in the aisles for sure, go see The Runaways!

Vintage Ruby

Vintage Ruby is a professional Jazz, Blues & Swing singer based in Folkestone, who regularly travels to London and all over the UK and beyond to sing for her clients. Her repertoire covers songs from the 1920s to the present day. Ruby has a beautifully soft jazz voice, reminiscent of the classic jazz and blues singers of the 1930s and 1940s.

She can turn her hand to any vintage themed event, from 1920s Gatsby, 1930s and 1940s Jazz and sing-a-long songs, 1950s Rat Pack and Rock ’n’ Roll to 1960s Pop and Rock songs.

Jazz standards like ‘Fever’ and Cole Porter’s ‘Let’s Do It, Let’s Fall In Love’ are mixed with popular songs like Amy Winehouse’s ‘Valerie’ and Caro Emerald’s ‘That Man’. She also has a good selection of music from most genres including: Jazz, Blues, Swing, Rock ‘n’ Roll, Pop, Motown, Soul, Country, Folk, Disco and Indie from the 1920s right up to the present day. Perfect for vintage style weddings with songs for all ages!

She started singing professionally in 2006 after passing auditions for the Covent Garden and London Underground busking licences. Ruby developed many stage skills and interaction with her ‘audience’ of tourists and commuters. It was there over the years that many people including famous faces passed by and helped give her the encouragement that she was on the right path. This included the singer Boy George who passed by at Leicester Square station saying to her ‘What a beautiful voice!’.

The Dulcettes

The swinging sound of two vintage voices harmonising together to form the Dulcettes. Holly and Victoria first met at the War and Peace Revival 2016. After realising they lived just down the road from one another, the following year they decided to perform a couple of numbers together at the same show. And the rest, as they say, is history! “We think they’re great!”

Colrose 7

Humour, fun, repartee and of course great jazz mark The Culrose Seven’s style. The Colrose Seven are: Pete Rose (clt); Bill Jones (clt); Tom Clarke (sax); Ray Perkins (pno); Colin Hodges (bjo); Lisa Pentecost (bass); Jimmy Tagford (dms). You will thoroughly enjoy listening to Kent’s Number 1 Swing & Party Band – not to be missed!

The Folkestone Teeny Boppers

The Teeny Boppers are a 50’s style Rock ‘n’ Roll dance school for children aged 5 to 16 based in Folkestone. The group has been going from strength to strength since 1995 when it was founded by Margaret and John Hannah.

Dance helps children appreciate the benefits of structured activity. They meet in the main ballroom at the Grand Burstin every Saturday from 10-12. The Demonstration Team will be performing today and they will show people that the art of social Rock ‘n’ Roll is still going strong even with the younger generation.
