Lindy Circle News - 25th May 2015

Lindy Circle News - 25th May 2015 Hi all,

Swing at the Pilot is on as usual tomorrow, but please note that we have a one-off cancellation the next week (2nd June). See below for details:

1) Swing at the Pilot - Cancelled on 2nd June
2) Forthcoming Teaching Schedule


Swing at the Pilot is on as usual tomorrow, but we have a one-off cancellation the next week (2nd June). We return as usual the following week, 9th June, when we will start our new beginners' block. The schedule for the next few weeks is therefore as follows:

May 26th - On as usual
June 2nd - CANCELLED
June 9th - On as usual (start of new beginners' cycle)
June 16th - On as usual

Details of schedule changes can always be found on our web Calendar, which we do recommend you always check before travelling:

Next month's topic for the beginners class will be Pure Balboa (i.e. closed-hold Balboa). These beginners' classes run in a monthly cycle, with each week building on the material learnt in the previous weeks that month. Absolute beginners will therefore find it easier to start on the first Tuesday of the month, when we assume no prior knowledge at all. The classes will be suitable for complete beginners, but will also be useful for more experienced dancers wishing to brush up their basics and make sure their Pure Balboa is fluid, relaxed and dreamy.

Please see our web site for more details on both the beginners and intermediate classes:

Timings for the night are:

7.30 - 8.20pm Beginners Balboa class
8.30 - 9.20pm Intermediate Balboa class
9.30 - 11pm Social dancing

Price: £8 gets you either one or both classes.
FREE ENTRY for the social dancing after 9.30pm.

Venue: The Pilot, 56 Wellesley Road, Chiswick, London, W4 4BZ.

The Pilot is a lovely venue with a great atmosphere where you can relax with drinks and pub food available throughout the evening. Their function room has a nice wooden floor for dancing. There is free social dancing after 9.30pm which, as always, is open to anyone and all styles of swing dancing.

Note: We are in the separate function room building. Walk through the bar and into the rear garden to find it.
(The nearest tube station is Gunnersbury on the District line.)

Details for this night can always be found on our web Calendar:
