6 March – Save the Old School Hall – Public Meeting

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

You can also help by signing the online petition here …

Many thanks

NottingJam 2017 – it’s here!!

Hi everyone. Very quickly here’s a link to the Facebook event page for NottingJam 2017 which is taking place this weekend 3-5 March.

If you’re not booked on for the whole event you can still attend the social dances on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings (details are in the screen shot above – click to view more clearly). 

It should be a lot of fun so don’t miss out and remember that we are not running classes this Sunday or Monday, to give us all the time and space to attend, so why wouldn’t you! 🙂 

It’s just £20 for all 3 social dances but you can also pay for each individually. Contact the organisers for more info

Friday Night – 

19:00 to 00:00 @The Belgrave Rooms, 25 Goldsmith Street, Nottingham, NG1 5LB (Next to Spanky Van Dykes) 

 Cost: £5

13 Feb: Jazz Class at one-off new venue tonight

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

Remember – new temporary venue – Sneinton Hermitage

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

Happy New Year – start back date still unclear

Happy New Year everyone. I hope you all had a great Christmastime. 

This is just a quick note to say that I’m still chasing up confirmation for a hall space for us to get back to classes this year.  As soon as I have more information I’ll let you all know.  

It’s been lovely to get your messages saying how much you enjoyed our last block of classes and how keen you are to get back to it. I too can’t wait. So I will be in touch again soon and will keep chasing for options.
Best wishes everyone and I’ll hope to see you all soon.

New venue – New classes – New prices

Hello everyone 🙂

I’m really looking forward to seeing you all as we start a new run of Lindy Hop classes at our new venue, St Christopher’s Church Hall, Sneinton, this Sunday 13 November 2016.

It’s the perfect time to start learning if you’ve never been to classes before 🙂

Now I’ve been umming and ahhing about this but finally I’ve come to the conclusion that in order to support ourselves as we move into the new venue(s) we need to rethink our prices. We’ve kept the same prices for the last 3 years or so now as I don’t ever want a lack of money to stop anyone learning to dance and I know times are tough. To help with that there is a discount for students and unwaged and do please get in touch if the change in pricing causes any issues for you.

Having said all that we’re only talking about a £1-£2 increase depending on the number of classes you usually take and so I hope this is something you feel is reasonable.  

Per person, the new rates are: £5 for one class, £6 for two, £7 for three (for students and unwaged there will be a £5 maximum charge)

Solo Jazz Roots class on Mondays at 8pm starting this Monday 14 November will also be £5.  

The practice session also on Mondays at 9pm will be £2 – though this will be free for those attending the jazz class beforehand.

See you all very soon

Very best wishes from a very excited Lisa and Alex 🙂
