Swing Dance Beginners Workshop

9th Jun 2018 @ 13:00 - 16:00


Our Lindy Hop workshops are fun and supportive, and are suitable for absolute beginners, as well as those wanting to recap what they have already learnt.

This June we will be welcoming back our wonderful guest teacher Anna Rogers, from Lindy Hop Cardiff! Anna and Tamsin will take you through the foundations of this vintage dance, the Lindy Hop, with practice time and a chance for questions. We’ll be in a beautiful room with a partially-sprung dance floor in the centre of Frome at the Hubnub centre.

Book soon to avoid disappointment as our recent workshops have sold out!

Lindy hop is a style of swing dancing, born from the dance halls of 1920s and 30s Harlem. In recent years swing dancing has been enjoying a renaissance, and it can now be found all over the world. It’s a playful and energetic dance, and is also highly addictive, so watch out.
Please note that we rotate partners during the workshops.

Prices:£20 concessions) per person.

We very much encourage men and women to try whichever role they would like to. Traditionally it is the male who leads and the female who follows, but with swing dancing you will see many people exchanging roles.
