New Class: The Performance Troop

We’re taking swing dancing in Birmingham to a whole new level.

It’ll be challenging, you’ll need to be committed to it ’till the end, and it’ll be a ton of fun!

Starting from 7th March 2016, The Swing Era is going to grow it’s very own Performance Troop!

We will be learning classic routines and getting the group ready for actual performances – the first one is already on the horizon as part of International Dance Festival Birmingham!

All that we ask for you to join this group is that you are commited to coming every week to keep up with the routines and that you know the Shim Sham routine.

This class will start at 21.15 straight after the Level 2 class on Monday at St. Anne’s Parish.

This lot have already had a head start!

Dance Classes in Birmingham this coming week…

TRANKY DOO & SHIM SHAM!

WEDNESDAY 5TH & THURSDAY 6TH AUGUST

 

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.
