We’re turning 5! Time for a party!

Manchester Lindy is about to turn 5 and we’re going to celebrate with a good old-fashioned birthday knees up!

There will be cake! There will be a fully stocked bar! There will even be a complementary beverage for the early arrivals… Oh and lots of music for dancing (Lindy predominantly, but you know what happens if you get Dr Sid drunk after midnight)!

Central Manchester venue

All of this for a bargain price of £5

Buy your tickets here
or from Sid at Manchester Lindy, but be quick as space is limited.

Manchester Lindy says:

We were delighted when, in January 2012, Taina, international teacher and swing dance champion (with more than 20 years experience!) first attended a Manchester Lindy Swing Social, having recently relocated from London.  Within a couple of months the committee had worked up enough courage to ask her to take a class, and happily, since then Taina has become a regular guest, teaching across all three levels.

We are now delighted to extend that partnership and add a new dimension to vintage dance in Manchester by bringing you Solo Jazz every Thursday! This will be the perfect opportunity to learn all those tricky steps, in detail, with authentic styling and historical context. Suitable for Lindy Hoppers, Tap dancers and Burlesques babes!

News Flash! Thomas Blacharz, guest teacher, TONIGHT!

Manchester Lindy is giddy with excitement because Thomas Blacharz is still in town and he’s coming to our Swing Social tonight to guest teach levels 2&3!

As those that experienced Manchester Lindy’s fabulous Thomas and Alice workshop will know, Thomas’ teaching is thorough and his dancing inspirational.

Our bargain-tastic £5 price still applies! All we ask is that our members choose either level 2 OR level 3, we want to ensure there is enough space to move!

See you on the dance floor!

All Change! New Lesson times at Manchester Lindy!

Hey y’all! Don’t forget, lesson times change this Tuesday (7th May) Level 1 (formerly known as beginners) now starts at 7.45 as does the all new LEVEL 3! Level 2 is now at 8.30 (ish). All classes will be 45 mins long and we’ll be using a second room at Freemason’s Hall so social dancing can start earlier too (from 8.30pm). Sadly this means we’ll be raising the price to £5 – but hopefully you’ll all feel like you get more than an extra pounds worth!

Doors open at 7.30, as always.

(Level info is on the website www.manchesterlindy.co.uk – Level 3 is invitation only – speak to Paula or Amy if you fancy it, if you aren’t quite ready yet we’ll try and suggest things you can work on to get there – a rough guide is you need at least 2 years experience to qualify).

The Jelly Roll Club

Like Lindy Hop? Fed up of tea and cake? Want a boozy Saturday night dance/party in Manchester? Well, here is your very own boozy Saturday night dance/party in Manchester!

Manchester’s first (and quite possibly last)  taste of The Jelly Roll Club. Expect swinging, jazzy rhythms, plenty of booze, Lindy Hopping goodness, and maybe even a pair of big trousers or two.

Doors open at 9pm. Swing and jazz from 9 until 1, then for the last hour… guilty pleasures. Shake off that sweaty partner, go solo and shake your ass to some classic tunes.

£5 in and drinks from £1.75. Yes, that’s right, £1.75. Don’t ask what kind of drinks…… just focus on the price.

June 22nd at Zoo just off Grosvenor Street (attached to The Pub). Click on the flyer below to go to the Facebook event.

See you there.
