HSDY Founder Nickki Spencer



After a failed attempt to go out dancing in Soho one night when she was in her 40s, Nikki decided to create the kind of club night that she and her friends wanted to go to : One that was fun, welcoming and non-judgemental, and all importantly, one where everyone could dance their socks off to feelgood 70s & 80s soul, funk and disco classics from Chic and Chaka Khan to Sylvester and Sister Sledge.

She called it Haven’t Stopped Dancing Yet after the 1979 Gonzales track and on a Saturday night in March 2010, in the upstairs ballroom at the Trafalgar Tavern in Greenwich, HSDY was born.

There were vinyl DJs spinning the tunes, dancers leading ‘line-ups’ to get everyone up and boogying, and prizes for the best retro outfits.

It was an immediate hit and Nikki and the HSDY crew have been partying and spreading the disco love ever since, with events in south east and north London, Croydon, and now Brighton too, and people coming from all over the UK and Ireland and Europe, and even the US and Australia


HSDY was launched so people in their 40s and 50s would have somewhere to dance, but everyone from 18-88+ is welcome.

There are single people, couples, families partying together, and groups celebrating everything from birthdays and school reunions to works dos, and hen and stag and “sten” nights.


If you love disco and you love to dance, you’ll love HSDY

But don’t take our word for it. Read what others have said, look at our gallery, and then come and join us on the dance floor.

HSDY DJ Dolly Mix


Dolly Mix

We first met DJ Dolly a vintage clothes fair in Crystal Palace where we instantly bonded over a mutual love of sparkly outfits. When she then mentioned she was a vinyl DJ and loved disco we were totally smitten, and asked her to join the HSDY crew. Dolly has a regular Saturday night show on Wandsworth Radio and DJs at venues across London including Shoreditch House and Pop Brixton.

HSDY Dancer Goz



When she’s not performing on stage in the West End (most recently in Book of Morman) we love to have Goz join us at HSDY. She strutted her funky stuff with us when we hosted a stage at People’s Day in 2016 and most recently she has been leading the dancing at Islington Assembly Hall & at St Pancras International, where she impressed one passer by so much that he asked us to pass on his business card.

He was a casting director for a musical so watch this space!

HSDY MC  Fergie



Technology company whizz during the week, dapper disco MC at weekends, Fergie loves to put on his glad rags for HSDY. His 70s suits always get admiring glances, as do his hats. His growing collection mainly comes from Laird Hatters in London’s Covent Garden. He has already been featured on their social media posts. We reckon a sponsorship deal is only a matter of time!

HSDY DJ Lord Anthony


Lord Anthony

Lord Anthony is a legend in silver lame and one of his proudest DJ moments was warming up the crowd for Nile Rodgers and Chic on the main stage at Bestival. He has also played everywhere from Space Ibiza to London Fashion Week – where he also modelled on the catwalk for Vivienne Westwood.

He likes nothing more than dressing the part for HSDY. Memorably, he DJyed as Lord Nelson at The Trafalgar Tavern in Greenwich , and at VW Bug Jam he dressed as a ladybird (geddit?)

HSDY  Dancer Lady Boo


Lady Boo

Back in 2017, possibly fortified by a glass or two of wine, Boo sent a late night Tweet to HSDY saying “ I want to be one of your dancers”, and the rest, as they say, is history.

When not on stage at HSDY, Boo is the queen of south London vintage frocks, hosting her Boo to a Goose sales at her house four times a year.  Not only has she brought her fabulous, irrepressible energy to HSDY, she has helped us up our sartorial game too. Many of  the sparkly outfits and shoulder padded jumpsuits we wear at HSDY come from Boo.
