A bit about Hasse and Marie

(from www.hasseandmarie.com):

“Hasse and Marie are internationally recognized for their high energy and spirit as Lindy Hop dancers and instructors. Their classes emphasize the use of musicality, technique and partner connection. Energy and focus on fun are constant elements to every class.

This couple have a lot of teaching experience, from beginners to competition couples, and they appear on the teaching line up for many established camps around the globe, including Herräng (Sweden), Camp Hollywood (USA) and Rock That Swing Festival (Germany) just to mention a few”.

maxresdefault

We at Manchester Lindy are beside ourselves because the wonderful Isabella & Pontus are coming to teach and inspire on SATURDAY 10th and SUNDAY 11th MAY!

We will be following our previously used format of Improver/Intermediate on the Saturday, and Intermediate/Advanced on the Sunday. As there is some crossover, we are happy to help you to find the correct level for you.

We cannot confirm start and finish times as yet, but there will be four hours of teaching each day plus breaks, so plan to spend  5-6 hours at the venue.

See Isabella and Pontus in action here: http://youtu.be/mUOP5jG24Sc

The price for this event is £45 per day, inclusive of entry to the Saturday night social dance.

We would like to draw your attention to our new venue, so you don’t all automatically flock to a familiar one, like homing pigeons.

Our new venue for this weekend’s workshops and social dance is St Mathews Church Hall, next to St Mathews Church in Stretford, (near the incredibly strange Stretford Mall – inspiration for the Morrissey lyric, “Slap me on the patio”) this will be the first time Manchester Lindy have used the venue and we’re hoping the floor will be just right for us picky dancer types. Stretford is close to Chorlton and is well served with buses and trams.
