The Dance Studio Leeds
£8 on the door

We’re also running the Shim Sham and Slip Slop Shim Sham workshops on the following dates:

Hot Charleston is also running as normal on Saturday 11th February 3.30-5.30pm, so why not make a weekend of it!

Lindy at Leeds Market 2016

On Sunday 11th December, teams of dancers from Lindy Fridays, Leeds University Swingsoc and Swing Dance Leeds performed routines and danced all day at Leeds Kirkgate Market in order to raise money for the NSPCC!

Many of the dancers involved are new to dancing and had never performed in public before so it was a huge challenge for them.  It was a fabulous day and everybody worked really hard – you can see videos of the performances on the Swing Dance Leeds YouTube channel.

The first Lindy at the Light took place in 2005.  Since that time, we have raised over £50,000 for the NSPCC!  We have a target of £5,000 this year and you can help us get to that target by visiting our Just Giving page and donating online.

If you’re donating online, you can use the following hashtags in your message to show your support for a specific group:

#LF for Lindy Fridays
#SwSoc for Leeds Uni Swing Soc

Let’s smash our target for this fantastic charity this Christmas!

Thank you for your support.
