News! News! News!     



Hi Everyone

Another crazy year has started and we have lots of things in the planning to keep you dancing! First we are putting on a Steeple Swing out at the end of February a great social night for all. Followed by an Improvers Sunday workshop. Then we have our Spring Hop 'til U Drop Swing Dance with the Amazing Si Cranstoun (I can't wait!) and we are waiting on bands for an Easter bash too! We are also teaching at( Warners ) Boogaloo's Jump Jive 'n'Boogie weekend at Hayling Island at the end of March with great Bands including: The Jive Aces, Oo-Bop-Sh'Bam, Pete G & The Magnitones, Ding Dong Daddios, The Regular Joes, it's going to be a great weekend with lovely food too! do join us! See: www.boogaloopromotions.com  For details. There are some other fabulous dance weekends and festivals out there with Rock Bottoms, Hep Cats, Camp Savoy, Twinwoods, Vintage to name a few!

Lil Miss Hayley News: I'm such a proud mum! Sorry, but after all these years of guest performing with the Jive Aces Hayley finally had the chance to record a song (Mr Sandman) on their "it's Skiffle Time" EP and it sounds beautiful, it is available through i tunes and the Jive Aces obviously and a live version is on you tube www.lilmisshayley.co.uk , Hayley also received a standing ovation and her own encore at Ronnie Scott's and is performing there again on the 19th Feb' . Radio Cambridge has also taken an interest so Hayley has been on the Sue Marchant show & is going again back soon!

Improvers Sunday Workshop: We will be doing another Improver Level Workshop at Steeple Morden. Due to 90% of the folks who came to the last workshop usually come to our regular classes we have decided to keep these workshops at Steeple Morden and not at Over as in the past. Just the basic patterns needed to do the workshop, as it is aimed to work on Connections & Frames, Lead & Follow Techniques to improve your styling and help with your understanding of 6 & 8 count moves with some snazzy stuff thrown in! With four hours you will benefit enormously from this.

Due to popular demand we will be doing another original 1920's Partnered Charleston Workshop later in the spring!

Then we have our Spring "Hop 'til U Drop" Swing Dance  A first for us and this guy is really popular right now known as the Golden Boy & Mr Dynamo "Si Cranstoun and his Band" are awesome! With rhythm influences of Ska and Rock'n'Roll, mixed with a voice which comes from the great sound of 60's soul, likened to greats such as Jackie Wilson & Sam Cooke, Si Cranstoun is amazing to see and fantastic to dance to, his music brings the old and the new together with a unique sound not to be missed! We also have Canama Dance Shoes selling Aris Allen & Bleyer Dance Shoes something for everyone! Tickets on sale now only £12 in advance! We welcome all dancers along including modern jivers & Rock'n'Rollers!   Please Note Tickets are selling like HOT Cakes! We are also limiting the numbers as we wish there to room to dance and not stand in front of the stage! Please get yours quickly as we don't want to turn away any of our lovely dancers! This event will most definitely sell out!                                      Already 75% Sold/Reseved
