Jen Walke, Producer of Rock a Hula!

“The Mudflappers have been in residence at Rock a Hula since its inception and provided fantastic fun tuition for thousands of novice swing dancers. They have our crowd laughing, Lindy Hopping and doing the Charleston within 45 mins, which is no mean feat! As well as being great teachers for beginners, they always throw in a show to open with, and are truly fantastic semi-pros. Many punters look on in wonder, then in delight they are encouraged to try their hand (and feet) at the techniques themselves. Love ‘em.”

“The Mudflappers got everyone, and I mean EVERYONE dancing at our Idler garden party last summer. They were the absolute highlight of the day combining technical skill with masses of positive energy. It was a whole lot of fun.”

“Instead of watching Strictly Come Dancing on the telly, we were doing it for ourselves. It was surprisingly easy to pick up and enormously cheering. Just an hour’s instruction has enormously improved my dancing confidence, and also my mood: dancing does indeed lift the spirits”
