Edinbop’s Wednesday Night Shoe Swing

May 15 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Lindy Hop classes and social dancing on Wednesday night at Summerhall, Edinburgh.

Foundations: 7pm-8pm – Main Hall
Suitable for absolute beginners and those wanting to work on the fundamentals! Every week, we work from the very basics up, so you are able to join at any time. No partner required!

For this week only – Dancing Beyond a Pastime: A History of Lindy Hop from Savoy to Summerhall, 8:15pm-9pm – Main Hall
Talking the place of our usual Improvers+ class, we’ll be having a history talk from Marlena Segar, based on her dissertation. This will be an important look into the heritage and evolution of Lindy Hop in the 1920s-1950s, and its cultural significance as more than just a leisure activity for the African American community that it originated in.
*There will be no Improvers+ class this week.
