Hello everyone

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year break.

*New Prices for 2020*

I’m hoping this small price rise is comfortable for everyone but please let me know if this causes any kind of barrier to attending classes.

  • £8 – 2 x classes per person on same day
  • £10 – 3 x classes per person on same day

Sun 16 Feb: Classes are on!

Hi everyone

I’ve been waiting to see how Storm Dennis panned out this weekend after the awfulness of last weekend’s Storm Ciara and while I know some have been badly affected by the wind and rain last night, all seems to have calmed down now and so I will be running our Lindy Hop classes today.

Only travel if it’s safe for you to do so.

Looking forward to seeing you all later.

Best wishes

Mon 10 Feb – Jazz Class Cancelled – Snow

Dear all

While things are calming down the snow and ice today have caused some problems on the roads again so I am going to make the decision to call off classes again tonight. Therefore there will be no Solo Jazz class this evening.

I’m as disappointed as you not to be out dancing tonight but sometimes it’s more important to make the sensible call.

I look forward to seeing you all soon.

Stay warm and safe and please spread the word so that no one heads out unnecessarily this evening.

URGENT: Classes Cancelled Today – Storm Ciara

Dear all

With Storm Ciara currently raging, and amber weather alerts in place across the region, it doesn’t seem safe to encourage anyone to be out on the roads today.

Therefore I’m going to make the call (however reluctantly) to cancel classes today.

Please can you spread the word to as many of your class friends as possible so that no one makes the trip unnecessarily.

I’ll make the call about Monday’s Jazz class tomorrow.

Stay safe everyone.

Sun 27 Oct: No classes – Join us at the Hockley Hustle!

There are no classes this Sunday 27 October but there’s still dancing and music because instead we’re all heading to the Hockley Hustle!

This is a great live music festival taking over all the bars in Hockley, in the centre of Nottingham, each year where all the profits go to charity. This year there are more than 300 live acts playing in more than 30 locations.

You can find out more and buy your tickets/wristbands here for £17.60 (there are also ‘young hustler’ tickets avail to those of you with families at lower prices with different venue access) :

https://hockleyhustle.co.uk


Live music galore:

Almost every music style you can think of will be represented across the festival so check out the event list and take your pick.

Of course that also includes Jazz and Swing which will mostly be hosted at Peggy’s Skylight on George Street, from 12.30pm to 11.30pm, although you will find other bands/ performances of interest across the festival.

https://www.peggysskylight.co.uk/events/hockley-hustle-1


Dancing in the street:

As part of the event the lovely Rose and George from SwingIt have organised two open air dance sessions that we can all join in with. See details below. It’s so much fun to dance in the streets so please do come and join us!


Class schedule:

Our regular Sunday Lindy Hop classes resume next Sunday 3 November.

Monday Jazz class runs as normal on Monday 28 October where we’ll be continuing to work on Norma Miller’s version of the Trickeration routine.


Ok that’s all from me for now. Soon be time to Hustle! Hope to see you all there 🙂

Sun 12 & 19 May: Frankie’s Shim Sham – Sunday Specials!

Hello everyone!

We have two Sundays in between the bank holiday weekends on Sun 12 and Sun 19 May 2019 and as this is Frankie Manning Month in the Lindy Hop World we thought it would be a great opportunity to share Frankie’s Shim Sham with you all.

To do this we’re going to change up our normal class schedule for the next 2 weeks.

🕰 Doors will open at 5:45pm with music for you to practice your Lindy or Jazz or just get settled with a cuppa and the class will start at 6pm and go through till 8.30pm with breaks in between.

🏠 We’re at our regular venue, St Christopher’s Church Hall, Trent Road, Sneinton, Nottingham.

💷 Classes will be charged at £7 per person per week.

Whether this is completely new for you or if you just want a refresher this will be a fun couple of hours for the next 2 weeks learning this great routine loved and shared by Lindy Hoppers the world over.

📽 As a bonus we will have a projector set up so that you can watch some great videos about Frankie Manning, and Norma Miller too (who passed this last week).

In the meantime I thought I’d share these new images of Frankie’s Lindy Hop values from the Frankie Manning Foundation ❤️

Really looking forward to seeing you all this Sunday!!
