Fast Feet Fest 2019!

Fast Feet Fest 2019 is less than a month away! Returning for a second year, we’re bringing you a weekend of frantic footwork for fast lindy and balboa.

In a ‘choose your own adventure’ style weekend you can do just balboa, just fast lindy or a mixture of both!

Bookings are now open via DanceCloud, find out more on our event page.

Free Taster class tomorrow!

Remember, remember the 12th of November 2018 when you discovered your love of the Lindy Hop!

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 12th November
Where: Sloans ballroom, Argyle St
How much: Free

No experience required, this class is aimed at complete beginners. No need to bring a partner but feel free to bring friends.
Afterwards there will be social dancing with live music from local favourites The Background Sounds!

Tonight it’s our AGM (which means no classes)!

Remember remember the 5th of November, because it’s the GLH AGM!

Our usual classes are taking a break tonight, returning next week with our Free Lindy Hop Taster Class – Monday 12th November!

Tonight we’re meeting at 7.30pm downstairs in Blackfriars for our AGM. We’ll be reviewing what we’ve done over the past year, looking ahead to what we have planned, and electing our new committee.

Find out more on the facebook event page, and see you later!

Tonight – End of term party!

We’ve reached the end of our latest block of classes, and it’s time for our end of term party!

We’ll start the night with an all levels taster class in balboa, followed by an evening of music, dancing, cakes and good times.

7pm – Doors open
7.30pm – All levels balboa taster class from Glasgow Balboa
8.30pm – Social dancing

Balboa is another dance in the swing dancing family, and was popular in the 1930s and 1940s. Like lindy hop, it is a descendant of charleston, and as such you’ll find lots of lindy hoppers who also dance balboa. If you find yourself struggling to keep up your triple steps to fast songs, balboa may be for you! It can be danced to faster music and takes up less room on a crowded dance floor. With weekly balboa classes starting on 30th October this is the perfect chance to give the dance a try!

After the class we’ll have social dancing for the rest of the evening. We invite you to bake or buy something tasty for our snacks table to keep people dancing all night.

And we could hardy ignore the fact that Halloween is just a couple of days away, so dressing up is welcome, in fact encouraged! We will have a small prize for the best costume 🙂

£5 entry for the class, £3 for the social only. See you there!
