Lindy Circle News - 6th October 2014

Lindy Circle News - 6th October 2014 Hi all,

Our Beginners Balboa class at the Pilot starts a new cycle this week. Details below:

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


This week is the first Tuesday of the month to 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 focus on Out-and-Ins. Out-and-In is one of the principle techniques used in Bal-Swing. It is often misunderstood amongst the modern Balboa community so this month's series is a good opportunity to learn this technique, either from scratch or to improve your existing knowledge and understanding. Over the course of the month we will build up from the fundamental technique and introduce variations, improvisations and further dynamics to help make your Bal-Swing more fluid and enjoyable.

Please see our web site for more details on both the beginners and intermediate classes:

Remember, we've moved to a new venue on Tuesday evenings. 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.

The details 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.

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:
