2) LONDON LAMINU WORKSHOP AND BUFFET - SUNDAY 22ND APRIL

We are pleased to announce that we will be running an afternoon Laminu workshop on Sunday 22nd April at our regular venue, the Crown and Anchor in Chiswick. Laminu is a swing dance that's done to very slow tempo music. Some people describe it as slow Balboa but it's really more than just that. It has its own particular quality of movement and structure that lend it a style and feeling all of its own.

Hot off the press!! - Dan has just published an article about Laminu and its history, so to learn more about the dance and see some videos check out the article here: http://www.lindycircle.com/history/laminu/

The workshop will be at beginner/improver level. You do not need to have done any Laminu before but if not it will help if you have some experience in Balboa - in particular, you should ideally be familiar with the basic "inwards" connection in Pure Balboa/Laminu.

The workshop will be followed by a buffet and social dancing, both included in the workshop fee.

DETAILS

Date: Sunday 22nd April 2018
Workshop: 2pm - 6pm
Buffet and social dancing: 6pm - 9ish (or last couple dancing!)
Cost: £40
Teachers: Dan & Gemma Guest

3) LAMINU HISTORY ARTICLE

Hot off the press!! - Dan has just published an article about Laminu and its history on our website:
http://www.lindycircle.com/history/laminu/

Up until now there has been very little information about Laminu generally available, so Dan has pulled together what he has learned from the original dancers over the years, along with his own experience and knowledge, to document what we know so far about this beautiful but little-known dance. Dan is a respected dance historian and has spent a lot of time with many of the "old timer" Balboa, Laminu and Lindy Hop dancers from the original heyday of these dances back in the 1930s, 40s and 50s.

You can also see other history articles written by Dan here:
