Sun 18 & Mon 19 Nov: Cancelled classes

I’m so very sorry guys but I’m having to cancel classes for another week (so there are no classes on Sun 18 and Mon 19 Nov).

My mum is being admitted to hospital on Sunday and has surgery on Monday. She’s in great spirits and so we’re keeping everything crossed for a good outcome.

I’m obviously really hoping everything goes well but also that I can be back with you all soon. I miss you guys!!

Thank you so much for your continued patience, understanding and support.

Sun 11 & Mon 12 Nov: Cancelled classes

Dear all

Unfortunately I am still unable to get back to teach our regular classes this weekend due to an ongoing family illness.

That means that very sadly there will be no classes on Sun 11 or Mon 12 November.

I’m so very sorry for the pause in our usual happy times but I am hoping to be back with you all soon.

Please spread the word.

Thank you for your support at this difficult time.

Much love to you all

Sun 4 & Mon 5 Nov: Cancelled classes – enjoy Bonfire night

Dear all

Unfortunately due to a family emergency I am unable to run our usual Lindy Hop (Sun 4 Nov) and Solo Jazz Roots (Mon 5 Nov) classes this weekend.

I am so sorry for the short notice.

As it’s bonfire night on Monday however I do hope you find some fab ways to enjoy this break.

Please spread the word and keep an eye on the website and our social media to check when classes will start back.

Many thanks to everyone who has already offered kind words and support. It is really appreciated.

See you all soon

Much love

Sun 28 Oct: It’s the Hockley Hustle! (so no classes)

Hello everyone!

So a reminder to all (please spread the word). There are no Lindy classes in Sneinton tomorrow (Sun 28 Oct) this is to enable as many of you as want to, to head to the Hockey Hustle!

This is a pretty awesome festival day in Hockley, Nottingham where pretty much all the bars host live music all day. You’ll need to buy a wrist band to get in, if you haven’t already got one, and the money raised goes to local charities.

https://hockleyhustle.co.uk

There’s music of all styles that you can think of and it’s very relaxed and friendly and so a great way to explore different musical experiences. The best bits from our perspective are that Peggy’s Skylight is hosting swing and jazz bands all day. Plus Rose & George are coordinating two sessions of outdoor swing dancing too. It’s going to be fab.

  • Outdoor swing dancing:
    • Sneinton Market at 1.30pm
    • Fringe stage/Ice nine at 5pm
  • Here’s the Facebook group Rose & George have set up to coordinate the outdoor dancing (join for updates): https://www.facebook.com/events/292707524788266/?ti=icl
  • Live music at Peggy’s starts at 2.30pm until 10pm:
  • https://www.facebook.com/events/713248332379773/?ti=icl

    • 2.30: Shell’s Belles
    • 3.30: Angels in the Architecture
    • 4.30: The Jeannie Barton Band
    • 5.30: The Ed Marchewicz Band
    • 6.30: Lady Bird Jazz
    • 7.30: Swing Gitan
    • 8.30: Boss Magnet
    • 9.30: Me & Mr Jones

    Hope to see lots of you there!

    Lisa xx

    PS:

    • Monday Jazz is still running on Mon 29 Oct. I’m looking forward to finishing up Al & Leon’s Shim Sham with you all.
    • Heads up: In November, Mon Jazz class will start learning the first half of the ‘Keep Punching’ Big Apple routine. Keep an eye out for dates and details. All welcome!
    • Lindy classes will be back on Sun 4 Nov.
    • Also on Thursdays through November I’ll be guest teaching for Oakham Swing!

    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 🙂
