Before we were married, my husband and I went to Johnny Wilson Jive Club in Byres Road.
We had to stop going because of a couple of tough guys who thought they could cut in on the partner the girls were jiving with any time it suited them.
They were just trouble makers.

Hi! just recently discovered this site and I spotted your request which I know was back in 2013. However, my wife Ann nee Holliday was a regular at Dalglish's and in fact received her Bronze, Silver and Gold medals for jiving during 1961. She was a member of the "Rockets" which was the Dalglish jiving display team who performed at various events. Her dance partner was Jamie Campbell who often helped Mr. & Mrs. Dalglish instruct the younger kids. Hope this stirred some memories for your Mum and that she is still well,
Regards Tom Macdonald

Alex Dalgleish and his sister Nan also taught Ballroom dancing

This is correct. It was a dance club; don't remember it as being a "Jive School" The only time I went to have a look I refrained from going in as the clientele seemed far too young in my estimation. I was 22 at the time. It was famous at the time as it was a break in tradition from the big band dance halls dominating Glasgow entertainment at the time. From memory it was the first to start this trend.

There was a girl lived in my street in the 50`s and she told me her dad started the Lindella club,she said it was named after the wives of the 2 partners,Linda and Ella. I didn`t take it too seriously at the time for where I came from people just didn`t start night clubs or any thing so upmarket,but not long after that I must say they started to look a bit affluent,not that they ever looked down at the heel beforehand. She was a really nice type of girl too,so I`d like to think what she said was in fact the case. Too late now to know.
