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. So if you’re able to get out there’ll be a warm cuppa and a biccie waiting for you. Drive safe. And if you can’t get out today don’t worry, it’s our Christmas party next week so I’ll look forward to seeing you then 🙂 Lisa xx
I hope you all enjoyed learning the Shim Sham last week with Bob. We’re back to our usual Lindy Hop classes today at St Christopher’s Church Hall, Trent Road, Sneinton with beginners staring at 5.45, followed by Improvers at 7.15 and Intermediates at 8.15. There’ll be the usual teas and coffees and plenty of time to practice and Social dance before and between classes – including Shim Sham time. You know what to do 😉
See you all later!
£5 per class,
Deal: £6 for two, £7 for three when taken in the same session.
As you’ll know if you were at classes last week or follow us on Facebook, we’ve got something a little different for you this Sunday.
Instead of our regular Lindy Hop classes, Bob will be taking you all through the Shim Sham routine as wonderfully popularised, shaped and shared with us all by the wonderful ambassador of Lindy Hop, the late, Frankie Manning.
The session will run in two halves with half an hour Social dancing in between. It’ll be £5 for either half and £7 for both, all are welcome to Social dance.
6pm to 7.15: Beginners and those wanting a refresh of the main routine
7.15 to 7.45: Social dancing
7.45 to 9.00: Improvers variations to spice up your steps and rhythms
More details can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1548484931862046/
It’s going to be a lot of fun. No need to book and no partner necessary. Don’t miss out!
PS: we’re still at St Christopher’s Church Hall, Trent Road, Sneinton, Nottingham

This is a very quick post to remind you that there are no Lindy Hop or Solo Jazz classes this Easter weekend on either Sunday 16 or Monday 17 April 2017 (remember we always break on bank holiday weekends).
We will be back with classes on the following weekend (Sun 23 and Mon 24 April). So it’s just a one week break and we’ll see you again very soon :-).
We then go into a topsy turvey period due to the May bank holidays but I’ll remind you about those as we get there.
For now though I’ll look forward to seeing you on Sunday 23 and Monday 24 April.
Hope you all have a very lovely Easter break.
Just a quick reminder that our Lindy Hop classes are back today after the break for the very successful NottingJam last weekend and we’re also back at St Christopher’s Church Hall, Trent Rd (Collwick Rd end), Sneinton.
See you all later
PS – Solo Jazz will also be at St Christopher’s, startingack on Monday at 8pm
Hello! For those of you who are interested in the future of our previous, much loved venue, ‘The Old School Hall‘ in Sneinton, there’s a public meeting being held this Monday evening, 6 March. 7pm at Sneinton Hermitage Community Centre (hence no solo jazz class this week).
There’s been a lot happening, driven forward by a very passionate, skilled and dedicated steering committee who I know would love to get your support.
