Hallowe’en Party

Quick reminder to all that our end of term party is tomorrow, and we are getting into the spirit of the season by having our party Hallowe’en themed!

Prizes for best individual and team costume are available!

Doors are 7:00pm with a 1920’s Charleston Taster Class from Joyce at 7: 30pm showing us how to move flapper style!  Spooktacular social dancing with baking (contributions to the food table, home made or not, are entirely welcome!) will ease us into a wonderful evening!

We hope to see you there (if you dare…) at Blackfriars!

Love,

GLH x

Sunday Shimmy

We’ve given our monthly social a makeover with a new name AND a new venue!

Suitable for Lindy Hop, Charleston, Balboa, Shag and Blues, the Sunday Shimmy is a casual affair to allow dancers of all levels an opportunity to social dance, and who doesn’t love a social dance?!

Shimmy on down to Epoch – downstairs in Princes Square shopping centre – next Sunday from 4-7pm and shoogle your shoulders for as much as you like for £4!

Here is the Facebook event link: https://www.facebook.com/events/216109348922149/

Hope to see you all there!  Looking forward to seeing your best shimmy!

Taster Class – Monday 28th August

Last Monday was our most recent of our taster classes with the added bonus of live music from local band The Background Sounds once the class finished and the social dancing began.  Thanks for all those who came along and especially some of the beginner people who stayed right to the end – well done!

Here are some photos to fondly remember your night.  If you enjoyed the taster we hope to see you in our usual home of Blackfriars tomorrow (Monday) at 7pm for the start of a new block of Lindy Hop!
