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.

(That means there are no classes between Sunday 27 May and Monday 4 June).

I hope you all enjoy the break and I’ll see you all soon!

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 🙂

Sun 25 March: Sunday Shim Sham, Tea Dance & Fuddle

Hello everyone. Apologies for the delay in getting the details out about this event. Unfortunately I’ve been a bit unwell this week.

Anyway, as I’ve been mentioning in classes, I’ll be teaching Frankie’s Shim Sham this Sunday at our usual venue, St Christopher’s Church Hall, Trent Road, Sneinton, Nottingham.

https://www.facebook.com/events/963454177140059??ti=ia

Doors will open at 2.30pm with the workshop starting at 3pm and going on till 5pm.

Following the workshop, starting at 6pm, we’re having a tea dance and fuddle.

Please bring an item of food (savoury or sweet) for the fuddle table so we’ll all have food to share to keep us dancing throughout the evening. There’ll be the usual teas and coffees, fun, and lots of great music and of course dancing 🙂

https://www.facebook.com/events/2018900781686558??ti=ia

The one hour break will give you time to freshen up and time for me to get the hall set up for the evening 🙂

– The workshop and dance combined is £10

– To take part only in the workshop will be £7

– The dance alone will be £5

I hope to see you all there tomorrow. It should be a lot of fun.

After a fabulous first week of Lindy Hop classes held at our regular venue, St Christopher’s, I am pleased to confirm that we’ll be continuing for the next four weeks at Sneinton Hermitage Community Centre while St Christopher’s takes it’s turn as a much needed homeless shelter.

We’re also starting back with our Solo Jazz Roots class again this Monday, also at the alternate venue, so more fabulousness to come 🙂

The new venue is just down the road and although parking is a little trickier there is still plenty of on street parking near by, it’s got good size rooms to dance in plus a kitchen so we can all get that much needed, essential, cuppa between classes.

Sun 7 Jan: Happy New Year! Classes Start Back

Lindy Hop classes start back this week in Sneinton. Yay!

It’s a perfect time to start with us if you’ve never been before and of course about time we got back in the swing of things for all the rest of you fabulous people 🙂

I’m really looking forward to seeing you all!

CLASSES

  • 5.45 – Fundamentals (suitable for beginners and those fine tuning their basics)
  • 7.10 – More Rhythms and Patterns (Suitable for Improvers)
  • 8.20 – Intermediates

VENUE

This first Sunday back (7 Jan) will be at our usual venue, St Christopher’s Church Hall.

Please note that for 4 weeks after thIs Sunday we will be at an alternate venue while the hall is used quite rightly and admirably as a Shelter.

More details will follow but for now we can enjoy our first week back in our usual home 🙂

PRICES

After much deliberation I have decided I need to make a small change to our prices this year. At most this will result in a £1 increase for those who take multiple classes in one session. I hope you still think this is fair and reasonable for the quality of our classes and our venue.

  • If you attend one class this will remain at just £5,
  • for those taking 2 classes in one session this will now be £7,
  • and for those taking 3 classes in one session this will be £8.
  • For students and unwaged there will remain a maximum charge of £5.

If these price changes cause anyone difficulties in attending classes then please let me know as I never want money to get in the way of your dancing.

Of course, as always there will be the usual complimentary teas, coffees and biscuits.

See you all this Sunday!!

Best wishes

Lisa

Sun 10 Dec: CLASSES ARE STILL ON TODAY 🙂

Hello everyone! Hope you’ve been enjoying the snow this morning. All the main roads are clear and even the side roads are very passable in our neck of the woods so classes will still be running today.
