Re: Lindy Circle News - Bal Revival Online & Strolls

Re: Lindy Circle News - Bal Revival Online & Strolls We're adding the Tranky Doo to our regular social strolls for Tuesday nights. The emphasis won't be on teaching this per se, this is more of a practice opportunity. However, if you want to learn it properly Swing Dance Leeds are doing an online course starting at 8.30pm tonight: https://www.facebook.com/swingdanceleeds/

Lindy Circle News - Bal Revival Virtual Social

Lindy Circle News - Bal Revival Virtual Social Following our fun (if slightly chaotic!) online event last week, our Bal Revival Virtual Social will be running again this Tuesday! Please see details below, including a few updates (and, importantly, a new link to join) which we hope will help things run more smoothly. We will plan to run every Tuesday and will update our website and calendar with details soon. We're still working on things so please bear with us and do give us feedback if you have any ideas for how to improve these events :)

Lindy Circle News - Bal Revival Online Edition!

Lindy Circle News - Bal Revival Online Edition! We are missing our dance community, so we are going to try running an online social/dance/music event in place of our Tuesday evening Balboa night. We are going to need to experiment with the format somewhat, so please bear with us. It would be great to see you if you would like to join us. We will run a trial event this Tuesday (tomorrow) and if all goes well we will continue with future events on a regular basis. We would like to make it an interactive event, so depending on how many people turn up it could be chaos, but let's just treat that as part of the fun!


When: Tuesday 31 March, 8pm to 9pm (you don't need to be there for the whole time - just drop in!)

Where: Join via this link: https://us04web.zoom.us/j/684810551

What: A video conference social with music and chat. We plan to have a "main room" where we will DJ swing music, and maybe attempt to dance a little from our living rooms (please do join in if you have space!). We also plan to have a "breakout room" (a separate video channel which you can dip in and out of) where there will be no music so you will have the chance to chat with whoever else is in the "room".

Requirements: A computer/tablet/mobile with a webcam, speakers and microphone. The link should work in a browser but you will get a better experience if you download the application. You can set this up ahead of time from https://zoom.us/ and check out the settings to test the sound and video. We recommend enabling the "gallery view" so you can see everyone at the same time. Don't worry if it's not perfect - we will probably all be experimenting a bit!

Dress code: Feel free to dress up, or come casual!

Privacy: Everyone who takes part will be able to "see" each other - this is part of the aim, so please do turn on your video and sound and join in! This is not intended to be a one-way stream where we broadcast and you just watch; we would like it to be more interactive, as much like a normal social night as possible. We do not intend to record or publish the event in any way so it is intended only for the participants at the time. However, we can't guarantee that no-one else will record it. Please also check out Zoom's privacy policy etc. - we can't accept responsibility for any data they may collect as part of using their service.


Let us know if you have any questions or trouble setting up.

Lindy Circle News - Laminu and Other Upcoming Events

Lindy Circle News - Laminu and Other Upcoming Events People often ask us about Laminu, so we wanted to highlight that we have a couple of Laminu workshops coming up. In particular, if you want to attend the Bristol Laminu Workshop at the end of September you need to book soon.

You also need to get your skates on if you want to join us for the Brighton Balboa Festival in a couple of weeks time - leaders in particular, please book as soon as you can!


BRIGHTON BALBOA FESTIVAL
20-22nd September 2019
https://www.sussexswing.co.uk/brightonbalboa
https://www.facebook.com/events/623226381474378/

The annual Brighton Balboa Festival. A fun, friendly (and slightly crazy!) weekend of Balboa right in the heart of Brighton, where you can soak up the street culture and vibe of this unique city. There are workshops at three levels, with social dancing to live bands from Brighton's thriving jazz scene, and a chilled out Sunday morning breakfast dance on the pier. The main venue is just 10 minutes from the coach and train stations.


BRISTOL LAMINU WORKSHOP
28 September 2019
https://www.facebook.com/events/2104741602988583/

This Laminu workshop in Bristol will consist of three hours of classes, which will be followed by one of Dan’s famous talks where he will tell us more about the history of Laminu, plus some of his fascinating stories about Balboa. We’ll then have a tea dance with hot drinks, cakes and biscuits, and will have Dan DJ for us with lots of wonderful swing tunes specially suitable for Laminu. The level of the class will be beginner but if you’ve done some Balboa or Slow Balboa before then that will be an advantage.
