Learn to Swingdance: New Block Starting – Thursday 9th June

9 June @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm BST

~ NEW BLOCK OF LINDYHOP CLASSES STARTING – perfect for complete beginners ~
Want to learn partnered dancing, but worried you have two left feet and no rhythm? Then come to our swingdance classes – they are very beginner friendly and sure to put a smile on your face (at the very least). You don’t need a partner or any dance experience, just a willingness to ‘give it a go’. What’s more, our classes are completely free
We hold classes every Thursday. There will be social dancing after the class. Stay for as long or as little as you like.
No partner or previous dancing experience needed. We’ll teach you everything! Just turn up and don’t forget to bring a bottle of water.
What is swingdance? Think the dancing styles seen in the Great Gatsby or La La Land. Amazing, right? And it’s super fun and relaxed. Here’s a recap video of a previous class taught by us: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4EWkoEfzJt0
So come join us on Thursday. Can’t make this Thursday? – No problem – just show up the following Thursday, beginners are always welcome. The classes are FREE.
Hope to see you all dancing. To keep up to date with future events please join Leicester Swingdance Society (LUSS): https://www.facebook.com/groups/leicesterswingdance
IF DRIVING IN: free parking is available on campus, just let the security intercom at the gates know you’re there for a dance society meet up (follow the road up and turn left at the mini roundabout to park closest to the Charles Wilson Building).
COVID SAFETY: To ensure that things are covid safe, we ask all dancers to not attend if you think you may have covid. Hand sanitisers will be available along with masks, if you wish to wear them.
