Hot Charleston is a great way to learn the Charleston, have fun, burn calories and meet some great people. There are just two Hot Charleston sessions left in 2016! The next one is on:
Saturday 12th November
3:30 – 5:30pm
@ The Dance Studio Leeds
£8 drop in, no booking required *** Comfortable clothes and flat shoes recommended *** No partner required
The workshop is open to absolute beginners and experienced dancers alike, starting from the basic step giving you a few showy moves and a good workout. The workshop has two sections; the first section gives you a short fun routine and the second section focuses on developing the steps you’ve learnt in the first section, introducing a freestyle aspect (but in a structured way). This will give you the confidence to Charleston anywhere!
Here’s a video from a recent Hot Charleston as a recap and as inspiration!

As you know, we hold our Wednesday Courses and Saturday Hot Charleston Workshops at The Dance Studio Leeds. They’ve been in touch to let us know of some changes to the parking at Mabgate Mills. Hopefully it won’t affect anybody too much but please note the following:
This won’t affect all of you but please note the gate off Macaulay Street will close at 8.45pm (once the final classes have begun). If you need entry after this time please call the studio landline 0113 242 1550 at which point we can open the gate for you so you can enter.
Exit will then be via the Mabgate entrance under the archway (the automatic gates will open when you drive up close to them).
They are encouraging cars to use the Mabgate exit generally to help flow.
From 9th October (when they are re-marking the bays) these will no longer be in the car park to make more room for manoeuvring in/out of the main bays.
Ticket enforcing isn’t new but in case you are not already aware we have 3 allocated spaces during the daytime Mon-Fri 9-5.30pm.
From Sunday 9th Oct these will be bay numbers 28, 29, and 30 (located immediately infront of the blue studio door and the following two spaces to your right if facing the blue door). Please only use these spaces if visiting the studio during office hrs.
Permits will need to be collected from reception and displayed during the office hrs above to avoid a penalty ticket.
Students can park after 5.30pm Mon-Fri and during the weekends as usual.
If for any reason the car park is full in the mill, free parking is also available on Macaulay Street after 6pm.
