Lindy Circle News - 7th April 2015

Lindy Circle News - 7th April 2015 Hi all,

Swing at the Pilot is on as usual tonight, with the Beginners Balboa class starting a new cycle based on throwouts. Details below:

1) Swing at the Pilot - Balboa Classes & Social Dancing
2) Forthcoming Teaching Schedule


Swing at the Pilot is on as usual tonight. This week is the first Tuesday of the month so we're starting a new cycle for the beginners class. 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. This month we will be covering the essential elements required for that classic Bal-Swing move the throwout. 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 throwout is really snappy and dynamic.

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:
