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

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.

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.
