TrishaandScottWow, what a week! Not only did we resume our regular Tuesday night session but we also welcomed Trisha Sewell and Scott Cupit back to MCR for a whole weekend’s worth of amazing Lindy Hopping!

Trisha and Scott are inspirational dancers and clear, concise and fun teachers – they blend authenticity and creativity seamlessly and best of all, happily share their skills with others.

Here are just a few of the lovely comments made by Manchester Lindy members about Trisha and Scott’s Manchester Workshop:

Thanks for a brilliant day – fab workshop by Scott and Trisha, and a great night at the social! Lots of fun! 🙂

Thank you to Manchester Lindy people for organising this, Scott and Trisha’s workshop was fantastic and the social afterwards was so much fun. What a great building too!

Tuesday 24th of July, Manchester Pimp Walk special!

This Tuesday we are combining the beginners and improvers class to teach you all the Manchester Pimp Walk routine.

(This is for ALL levels so if you usually arrive just before the beginners class, come early this week)

Lesson will start at 7.45pm
Social starts about 9.00pm (ends 10.45ish)

The Manchester Pimp Walk is Manchester Lindy’s very own dance routine choreographed and taught originally by the fabulous Trisha Sewell.

The routine will be performed as a flashmob, which will be done in the very near future, watch this space!

We’ll be passing it on to all attendees of our Lindy Exchange too!

Also happening in the next couple of weeks on a Tuesday night, Manchester Lindy members will be filmed performing strolls such as the shim sham and charleston stroll, so get practicing!

The Manchester Pimp Walk

Manchester Lindy now has our very own Authentic Jazz routine! Choreographed  by the fabulous Trisha Sewell and danced to Slim and Slam’s Tutti Frutti (1938) Trisha taught it to 36 of us at July’s Jazz workshop and now it’s up to us to teach the rest of you (and beyond)!

Manchester Pimp Walk class at Manchester Lindy’s Tuesday Social coming soon!
