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.
If you want to know more you can view the website … http://www.doshsneinton.org.uk/

CHANGE OF VENUE FOR TONIGHT!!! Unfortunately the Hermitage has been inadvertently double booked for tonight but I’ve rung around and found an alternative for us so our solo jazz roots class at 8pm (and practice session at 9pm) can still run.
It’s a dance studio at the Brendan Lawrence Sports Centre, 35, Hunger Hill Road, St Ann’s (off Woodborough Road). It’s a great chance to use mirrors to help your dancing but don’t worry they’re not everywhere so you can not look if you don’t want to 🙂.
Can you please share far and wide, so that everyone knows as it’s incredibly short notice?
If anyone has transport issues please let me know and I will try and help everyone get there.
Maps are below … the red marker is tonight’s venue
Hello! So, as we’ve been discussing at classes, St Christopher’s are very kindly running a shelter for the next 5 weeks from our usual hall so we’re going to move to a new temporary venue in order to keep classes running for you. It’s not perfect but there’s a big enough space and a kitchen with a kettle – so you’ll still get your Sunday (and Monday) cuppa and we should be able to dance 🙂
Here’s the address and a couple of maps. Sneinton Hermitage: Sneinton Boulevard, Nottingham, NG2 4GN.
As you can see it’s very close to St Christopher’s. Parking is on street and it sits off a pedestrian square.
See you from 5.30pm on Sunday for Lindy Hop and 8pm on Monday for Solo Authentic Jazz
