Lindy Hop - The Venue, Potterrow
Balboa - Quaker Hall, Pleasance
Taught by Jamie and Katie
6:30 - 7:15 Intermediate Lindy Hop
This is the lesson for you if you started dancing with us last year or earlier, or you've learned basic Lindy Hop (e.g. 6-count, 8-count, Charleston, Lindy Turn, some variations) somewhere else and are fairly comfortable dancing socially. This lesson will focus on the difference between performing and social dancing.
7:15 - 8:00 Beginners Lindy Hop
No previous dance experience or partner required. Come along and give it a go! Even if you’ve got two left feet!
Please wear comfortable clothing and flat shoes (more on what to wear).
8:00 - 9:15 Social Dancing/Practice
Listen to some great tunes and get those moves into your muscle memory. Relax, enjoy and don't be afraid of making mistakes- this is what Swing dance is all about!
8:15 - 9:00 Beginners Balboa (Qaker Hall, Pleasance)
Balboa is a bit trickier to lead and follow than Lindy Hop, so Jamie and Katie ask that you have some experience in a lead/follow partner dance (e.g. Lindy Hop, Tango, Salsa, ...) before attending. Also, please note beginners cannot join in the second semester. So, make sure to attend in the first two weeks of the year!
Come join us for a drink and a chat (usually in New Amphion or Lounge Bar) after your lessons!
Our solo jazz performance group meets for two hours one week and one hour the next (to make way for our open class.) Keep your eyes peeled for more info about auditions and opportunities to join throughout the year.
Every two weeks we have an open class where anyone can come along and hone their solo jazz skills, check Facebook and the weekly newsletter to see whats on.
