It’s the first week in August, it’s a super busy time of year so we’ve decided to do something a little bit special this coming week. We’ve had lots of requests for this so I’m pleased to announce that we’ll be working on some solo jazz taught by Suzanne Grubham! Not only will this improve our styling and musicality when dancing Lindy Hop but we’ll get to work on those amazing routines – Tranky Doo and Shim Sham.
So if you get frustrated that you can’t join in when you see people flood to the dancefloor for these routines, or you want to add that bit of extra styling, then make sure you join us.
Wednesday at Alfie Bird’s we’re teaching one Shim Sham class at7.30pm followed by social dancing instead of our usual 2 classes. The following week (12th August) we’ll go back to our Improvers Lindy Hop class at7.15pm and Beginners Lindy Hop class at 8.15pm with social dancing after classes from9.15pm.
Thursday at the Dance Workshopwe’ll start work on the Tranky Doo in Improvers class at 6.45pm, and we’ll be working on some fun solo jazz in Beginners class at8pm. We’ll head to The Prince after classes for a drink and some social dancing.
Only £15 for a really fun 2 hour workshop for all levels!
