2) CHRISTMAS PARTY - 20th DECEMBER
Friday 20th will be our Christmas Party. We have live music from SHIRT TAIL STOMPERS, and extra social dance time. There'll be a fun jazz routine class, extended social dancing, mulled wine and lots of festive nibbles. So dress up, get into the spirit, and see out the year in style!
Everyone is welcome to join in the class. It will be challenging for complete beginners but you can still join in! It will be easier for those of you who are already familiar with the regular Shim Sham. Either way, it’s a fun routine and a good way of improving your rhythm, timing, movement, etc.
The SHIRT TAIL STOMPERS are one of the UK's best swing bands and always go down a storm with dancers. They play a wide range of standards at various tempos suitable for both Lindy Hop and Balboa.
TIMES / CLASS CHANGES
There will just be a single class to allow more time for social dancing to the band. We will also remain open later than usual. The times are as follows:
7.45 to 8.45pm DEAN COLLINS SHIM SHAM class
8.45pm onwards is social dancing to THE SHIRT TAIL STOMPERS
Entry will be £10 for the evening (no extra charge for the class).
