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
1) SWING AT THE PILOT - CANCELLED ON 2ND JUNE
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
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.
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.)
