Join us for some social dancing, on Sunday 26th January at our new venue, Cathedral House Hotel, just off the High Street. We’ll have three hours of DJed tunes to dance to, plus plenty of time to socialise with your chums and enjoy checking out your new surroundings. Just buy a drink from the bar, and entry is free! You can choose tea, coffee, soft drinks or alcohol, and if you’re feeling peckish there will be light meals and snacks available too.

Free Taster Class – 6th January 2020

Swing into the Roaring 20s with a free lindy hop taster class with Glasgow Lindy Hoppers!

Lindy hop came out of the jazz clubs and ballrooms of Harlem in the 1920s. It was popular in the 1930s and 40s, but is still danced all over the world today.

In this free taster class we will take you through some simple, fun moves to get you dancing straight away.

When: 7pm, Monday 6th January
Where: Renfield St Stephens, Bath Street
How much: Free!

Stick around after class to practice your new moves with some social dancing time!

No experience required, this class is aimed at complete beginners. No need to bring a partner but feel free to bring friends.

WARNING: This dance is highly addictive, proceed with caution!

Level Up – Pep that Step!

Registrations for Level Up – Pep that Step open on Saturday 6th April at 10am via DanceCloud.

Glasgow Lindyhoppers are delighted to announce the return of Level Up! for its third year!

Also returning to Glasgow are two of our faves – Trisha Sewell and Ben Cook.

Level Up – Pep that Step! will focus on taking your dancing to the next level. This is a chance to improve your technique, to hone your leading and following skills and to get your power bars up to full strength.

Follow track – Sugabomb with Trisha!

Sugabomb is a philosophy. We want all followers to feel fabulous and confident about their dancing, and to find their own ‘unique sweetness’.

This program is an introduction to our philosophy which gives followers a deeper understanding about the core skills required to develop your individual personality and to be an amazing follower. This includes working on body awareness, posture, connection and variations. Followers will get to spend the whole weekend working with Trisha.

Lead track with Ben!

Spending their weekend working with Ben, leaders will have the chance to focus on their own body and movement as well as honing in on key aspects of leading.

Ben will take leaders through a programme designed to develop essential leading skills, including working on quality of movement, body leading, footwork variations, improvisation and efficiency, anchoring and stretch.
