First Fundamentals Course of 2018 starts 10th January!

Make 2018 your year of dance!

Is your New Year’s resolution to learn to dance, get fit, or make new friends?  You can do all of this and more with our Fundamentals Course!

We will teach you the basics of Lindy Hop in just one 4-week course!  This course will give you a solid foundation in fundamental lindy hop moves and techniques, ideal for people who’ve never danced before. With small class sizes you will meet a lovely group of people, meaning you’ll have friends to dance with when you come along to a social dance or drop in class.  It is appropriate for absolute beginners as well as anyone else who wants to re-visit their basics

Benefits:
– Small class size
– Individual feedback
– Structured learning

Course Details:
Wednesdays 10th – 31st January
6:30-7:30pm
at Dance Studio Leeds
cost: £30 for the 4wk course

Pre-booking and payment required in advance
