David has decided to return to Canada to continue his dance studies at a Canadian University, so sadly his last class for us will be on August 19th. To mark this, and our fifth birthday, we will have a free dance event from 8 pm to 10 pm following the usual beginner and improver dance class lessons. Entry to the dance will be included in the usual entry price for the lesson. Please bring your own drinks and food and we will provide glasses, bottle openers, corkscrews and plates.
There will be a guest appearance from the leading six piece swing dance band, who have recently returned from their successful European tour, the Boomtown Swingalings, plus, hopefully, records from DJ Warren of jive fame.
I have invited several swing dance students to this event. We will do a beginners class in swing from 5,30 pm to 7 pm , where David will explain, demopnatrate and teach the differences between balllroom jive and swing dances, such as Lindy Hop.
From 7 pm to 8 pm we will do quiclstep with a view to helping guests who normally do swing to learn how to do a basic quickstep, It would be appreciated if our regulars help newcomers from swing to learn quickstep by partnering them. This quickstep class will be a free taster class for any swing dancers
