Free lindy hop taster class – Monday 27th March

Swing into spring with a free lindy hop taster class from Glasgow Lindy Hoppers!

Lindy hop came out of the jazz clubs and ballrooms of Harlem in the 1920s. It was most popular in the 1930s and 40s, but is 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 27th March
Where: Sloans ballroom, Argyle Arcade
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!

WARNING: lindy hop is a highly addictive dance. Proceed with caution (and lots of fun).
