LINDY HOP ON TUESDAYS
Weekly from 8.00 to 10.00 pm - see Our Calendar
The '20s are about to come roaring back so get ready to party with some sumptuous swing dancing. Lindy Hop came from the cultural mix of Harlem’s ballrooms and decided to stick around which is great for each generation that discovers it all around the world. This amazing free-style partner dance fits with all types and tempos of swinging music.
Learn to Lindy Hop with a couple who have lived together in swing dance for over 20 years, having been the first in Reading to promote the revival of this style back in 1994. Brought together by their mutual love of dance they have traveled widely to learn from many of the very best swing dance teachers and love to share their passion and insight with those taking their first steps into this world of fun.
Weekly on Tuesday evenings from 8.00 pm in central Reading at St Luke’s Parish Hall, Erleigh Road RG1 5LR (near the Royal Berks Hospital and Palmer Park).
No previous experience needed - just come ready to have bags of fun. Bring a partner or come alone - it's up to you.
These Lindy Hop classes offer 2 levels, catering for absolute beginners at 8.00 pm, with the second class at 9.00 pm being the more stretching one.
Each week starts with the very basic content for beginners and revision.
Level 2 classes for more experienced dancers are from 9.00 to 10.00.
New starters are able to book a 6-week beginners course for just £30 - BOOK HERE
Standard Prices: £8 each cash on the night each week and, when you are ready, take both Level 1 and Level 2 classes for £10.
Each week starts with the basic content for beginners with plenty of revision which means that you can miss weeks and catch-up later.
In Level 2 classes we spend time adding some intermediate ideas to stretch those who have been attending for a while.
We will patiently prepare you to enjoy social dancing. There are no exams or tests, just coaching and encouragement in a friendly atmosphere. You will be introduced to the essentials of your chosen dance within weeks and then you will gradually grow in confidence and competence.
