Lindy Fridays at Holy Trinity Church – 10th November!

A special Lindy Fridays will be taking place at Holy Trinity Church on 10th November!  Please note that this is INSTEAD of the Corn Exchange.

Lindy Fridays will take place in the fantastic Holy Trinity Church (often used as the Monday venue for Leeds Swing 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!

Live music will be provided by the brilliant Martyn Nelson and the Rhythm Remedies, from Birmingham!

There will be a bar available at the venue.

Details of the event are here

Afterwards, you can go for some free blues dancing at Crowd of Favours with Underbeat Blues, just a short walk away!  Facebook event here.

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

Lindy Fridays classes will return as normal at The Carriageworks the following week.
