Lindy Circle News - 3rd May 2013

Lindy Circle News - 3rd May 2013 Hi all,

Latest details as follows:

1) Bal Friday - Class Changes Tonight - Laminu Special (3rd May)
2) Bal Friday - Cancelled Next Week (10th May)


The format and content of the classes tonight will be different to usual. There will be no "Fundamentals" level class that usually happens downstairs from 8:30 to 9:30. We will instead be teaching a special one-off class in Laminu for all levels of dancers. See the text below for more info on this.

The classes and timings for tonight are:

7.30 - 8.30pm:

8.30 - 9.30pm:
LAMINU - All Levels (upstairs)
Laminu is a swing dance that's done to very slow tempo swing music. Some people describe it as slow Balboa but its really more than just that. It has it's own particular quality of movement and structure that lend it a style and feeling all of its own. You don't need any prior experience of Laminu to take this class. The class will therefore be suitable for both complete beginners and more experienced Balboa dancers.

We've previously taught Laminu to some of our Bal Friday regulars but haven't done so for quite a while now. A few of you have been asking us about it recently - hence tonight's opportunity for you to learn it. Laminu is a wonderful dance and learning it will help improve your Balboa as it requires a sophisticated connection and good lead & follow skills. Yay for Laminu! :)

Dan discovered and learned Laminu directly from one of the original Californian dancers Ray Cunningham (bringing Ray over to London on a couple of occasions). Over the years Dan has taught Laminu at workshops all over Europe. The last of these workshops was just a couple of months ago in Vienna. Here is a link to a clip of Dan & Gemma's demonstration of social Laminu dancing from this workshop.
