However, Lindy Fridays at the Corn Exchange is happening instead!  Lindy Fridays will take place in the fantastic Leeds Corn Exchange, beginning with a short Lindy Hop taster class at 7pm, followed by social dancing until 10pm.  It’s the perfect way to start social dancing if you’ve just started taking classes!

Not only do you get all that, but this time, we have live music from the wonderful Alligator Gumbo!

For £5 not only will you get entry into the event and the taster class, you’ll get £2 off food and drink at Primo’s Gourmet Hotdogs!

We will also have Lindy Fridays t-shirts for sale at the Corn Exchange, so be sure to bring a bit of extra cash with you!

Free blues dancing at Crowd of Favours just around the corner afterwards with Underbeat Blues!  Facebook event here.

This is the last Lindy Fridays at the Corn Exchange until October, so don’t miss this fab event!

Details of the event are here and here’s a video of the kind of thing you can expect!

Hot Charleston – June/July 2017

Hot Charleston is a great way to learn the Charleston, have fun, burn calories and meet some great people.  The next one is on:

Saturday 3rd June
3:30 – 5:30pm
@ The Dance Studio Leeds

£8 drop in, no booking required
Comfortable clothes and flat shoes recommended
No partner required

Next dates:
17th June
15th July
22nd July

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!
