Manchester Lindy classes are taught by a variety of teachers so that each week you get a different experience, even when the material covered is the same. The wonderful Taina K (swing dance champion!) guest teaches regularly.
There’s no need to bring a partner as leads and follows will be rotated regularly throughout the classes. Come along and join us, it’s great fun.
Don’t worry if you have no dancing experience, Level 1 classes are exactly what they sound like, we start from the very beginning every week and then teach a small selection of moves designed to get you up and running on the social floor that very same night.
Every Thursday from 13th February
1.5hours of solid dancing & learning, taught by Taina K.
Technique for individual steps & classic solo routines!
Solo Jazz makes a solid base for your Lindy! The better you can dance by yourself, the easier it will be to do partnered dances, swing dance or other.
Solo Jazz takes place at Studio 25, 25 Church Terrace, Manchester, Lancs M4 1PE http://www.studio25manchester.com/
