Hi Folks

As the summer Festival season still in full swing a reminder that the Twinwood Festival is on the Bank Holiday weekend (Clapham nr Bedford) fab weekend Big Band Swing & Rock 'n Roll 40's/50's R&B Bands & Dance Classes. Day & weekend passes so do go along if you can. (full details on links page)

Do keep an eye on the "What's Swinging" on website for more local events & some fantastic weekenders of all kinds some vintage some are fun & classes, some luxury do check them out on the links page  there is always somewhere to go dancing & usually lots of friends to go with!

Feeling rusty? lost your confidence? well a new term for Beginners also means that we slow down the Intermediate group to allow the Improvers to join the next level so it's also ideal for a fresh start! so we welcome back anyone wanting to give Lindy Hop another go! Besides with Festive season next on the calendar what better way of shaking off a few extra pounds!   We also have our Autumn Hop 'til' U Drop in October tickets now on sale details below.

 Don't forget we have a reputation for running quote "the most friendly club ever!" We hope it is not intimidating or clicky in any way, we like you to be challenged & yet have fun & try to keep the classes as varied as possible. We also hope that if you have a problem of any kind you will speak to us to help you with it.

 Next Year is going to be really busy as it is our 10th Anniversary of teaching Lindy Hop & we have just confirmed one of our favorite Live Bands who have been on the corporate scene for several years now so unseen by many new-comers to swing dancing "King Pleasure & the Biscuit Boys you will love them. so pop Saturday 9th April 2011 in your diary's now!

Deb's 17 year old Daughter "Lil Miss Hayley" has been having a brilliant time gigging with the fantastic Jive Aces Singing & playing Double Bass she has been on tour to Ireland to Sicily & is off to America in November wow! Hayley hopes to get her own band & now has her own pages on the website do take a look!
