News! News! News!     



Hi Everyone
  Autumn term is here and we have an Indian Summer, fabulous! We welcome our brand new Beginners, so relax & enjoy everyone started somewhere!  We are off on a fun weekender next week:  "Rock Bottoms Lindy Festival" at the Adelphi Hotel in Liverpool, which will be crazy but also has some of the best teachers. They still have space for leaders & couples if you wish to join us!

Sunday Workshops: We have put on 2 Improver Level Workshops at Over. These are 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 over three hours you will benefit enormously from these.  We now run the Over Venue ourselves as Julia has been poorly and we wanted to take the strain from her! So bookings to us please!

As we love to dance the original 1920's Partnered Charleston we decided it was time to put on a Workshop totally devoted to the dance! We will teach the basic pattern to start with, then teach you how to incorporate the Original Charleston into your Lindy Hop & add loads of stylish variations! From total Beginners upwards!

Then we have our Autumn Hop 'til U Drop Swing Dance with another terrific 40's & 50's Rhythm & Blues Band "Oo Bop Sh Bam" Who went down a storm at Twinwoods so do come along, We also have Canama Dance Shoes selling Aris Allen & Blyer Dance Shoes something for everyone! Tickets on sale now only £11 in advance! We welcome all dancers along including modern jivers & Rock'n'Rollers!

HOT NEWS!!  With great excitement we have just booked the Golden Boy "Mr Dynamo" himself: Si Cranstoun & his Band for Saturday March 24th 2012 He has an amazing voice and the mix of Swing/Rock'n'Roll/Ska is quite infectious we loved him! Put the date in your diary now & please read on for all the details.
