Spring Break – We’ll be back on Sun 10 and Mon 11 June

Hello everyone

I hope you’re having a good bank holiday weekend.

Just a little message to remind you all that we’re now on Spring Break. We’re taking two weeks to relax and recharge and we’ll be back with a new block of Lindy Hop Classes on Sunday 10 June and Solo Jazz Roots on Monday 11 June.

By the way thank you to everyone who came to classes during May. The sun was shining outside but you still came to class and worked so hard! These are the little things that make me happy! Thank you 🙂
