Lindy Hop Beginners Workshop

June 30, 2018 @ 11:00 am - July 1, 2018 @ 3:00 pm

Our beginners workshop is back!

Learn the Lindy Hop basics on Saturday 30 June – Sunday 1 July in Edinburgh city centre.

This workshop with Ellen and Rob will focus on good fun, good technique and good moves (and at a good price too – £30/£25 concession for 6 hours of lessons!).

It’s an ideal way to build solid basics and the confidence to get up on the dancefloor, whether you’ve been dancing for a few weeks or you’ve never taken a lesson before! Alternatively, if you’ve been thinking about learning to lead when you usually follow, or vice versa, now’s your chance.

During the weekend in between some of the classes we’ll be doing some optional talks, including understanding swing music and why certain songs are good for dancing, as well as the culture and history of social dancing so you know how it all works once you hit the dancefloor.

The workshop schedule is:
– Saturday 30 June 1:30pm-6:00pm, at Crags Leisure Centre EH8 9RY
– Sunday 1 July 11:00am-3:00pm, at Wash Bar EH1 2LP

We’ll also be hosting a beginner-friendly tea dance for £3 on Sunday 1 July at Wash Bar after the workshop finishes, 3:00pm-5:00pm (included in your ticket if you attend the workshop).
