About UK-Ballroom

UK-Ballroom run by Jon White, a keen dancer and freelance web designer. Jon & his wife Jenn run dance events in Cardiff under the name Jive Magic.

The aim of this site is to provide up-to-date, accurate information about ballroom classes and events throughout the UK. All information held is submitted and maintained by the organisations who have registered their details on the site. As such, while every attempt is made to ensure accuracy, we always recommend contacting the organisation before travelling to an event advertised by them.

To help maintain accuracy of content, the subscribing organisations to UK-Ballroom are encouraged to review their information every three months at minimum. Inactive accounts are followed up and where no contact can be made, out dated information is removed.

UK-Ballroom is based on the hugely popular web site UK-Jive. Since its launch about 4 years ago, UK-Jive has grown to become the most comprehensive resource for modern jive dancing on the web and now attracts over 25,000 visitors a month.

Banner Advertising

To assist in the maintenance costs of the site, UK-Ballroom now offers the opportunity for organisations to purchase premium banner advertising space on the main pages within the site.

A link from our home page to your site will boost your site's popularity in the search engines, resulting in more visitors to your site.

The order in which banners appear on a page are random. This ensures that all advertisers receive equal and fair placement of their banners.
