We have decided to move Bal Fridays to a new venue and different day of the week. Our Balboa classes and social dance night are moving to Tuesday evenings at The Pilot pub in Chiswick. After 12 years at St Michael's it will be sad to leave, but we have had an increasing number of cancellations due to the hall being unavailable, as well as our own commitments at weekends. We therefore feel that it is time to make a change.
Inevitably this change won't suit everybody and we apologise to those of you for whom Friday was more convenient. However, overall we think this change will make for a better night for everybody involved. The Pilot is a lovely venue with a great atmosphere where we can relax and get some food and drinks throughout the evening. Their function room has a nice wooden floor for dancing. There will be free social dancing after 9.30pm which, as always, is open to anyone and all styles of swing dancing.
We are making this change for when we return from our current summer break. Our first night back will now be Tuesday 12th August in the new venue. We will have just one cancellation in September due to an existing booking at The Pilot, but after that cancellations will be extremely rare. However, as before please always check our online calendar before travelling: http://www.lindycircle.com/calendar
The schedule for the coming months is as follows:
12th August - First night at The Pilot!
19th August - On as usual
26th August - On as usual
2nd September - On as usual
9nd September - BREAK
16nd September - On as usual
The details for the night will be slightly different:
7.30 - 8.20pm Beginners Balboa class
8.30 - 9.30pm 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.
Note: Classes will be held in the function room building in the garden.
(The nearest tube station is Gunnersbury on the District line.)
The name "Bal Fridays" is obviously no longer appropriate so the new night will be called "Swing Dancing at The Pilot". Our website has all of the new details.
We are excited about these changes and hope you will be able to join us on the new night...
