Hi Everyone

 With Easter behind us now i'd like to thank all those who came to our Swing Out on Easter Saturday, it was a brilliant night full of lovely people and a great little band! I do hope you can all make it along to our Spring Hop 'til U Drop Swing Dance on 27th of this month with another terrific 40's & 50's Rhythm & Blues Band "The Zoltans" in Biggleswade, it's a much bigger hall so plenty of room for dancing, you can get tickets in advance however you will get in on the door so don't panick! We also have Canama Dance Shoes selling Aris Allen & Bleyer Dance Shoes and a bit of clothing and accessories, something for everyone! We welcome all dancers along including modern jivers & Rock'n'Rollers, Paul our DJ tries to cater for all tastes!

Before that, this coming Sunday on the 14th Yve will be teaching the Dean Collins Shim Sham, a very stylish take on the original Shim Sham, it's a little challenging but great to learn!

Yes the rumours are true, we are starting  New Lindy Hop Classes in Bury St Edmunds! Something we considered several years ago and have now decided to give it a go, starting with Absolute beginners and an Improver level class to let the levels build up. We will add Intermediate class in September. We are looking forward to a new set of people to teach this fantastic dance and how it works! From the great reaction we received at Hepcats this class is going to be buzzing!

Our June Steeple Swing Out will be great fun with a great local band we have danced to for many years, the 6T's, a 50's & 60's covers band, you will love them! The evening will be themed 50's & 60's music and dress (optional).

See you all on the dance floor!
