Classes – Come and learn to Lindy Hop with us!

*** SPECIAL NOTICE as of 10 August 2021 ***

The LLC Committee is preparing a return to classes in September. We are looking into options on a safe return that include several measures. Please watch our Facebook page for updates.

*** SPECIAL NOTICE as of 10 August 2021 ***


We run classes every Thursday evening upstairs at Collegian WMC, 1 Gage Street, Lancaster LA1 1UH (opposite the Taphouse in Lancaster centre). There is no need to book in advance, or start on a particular date, you can just come to any Thursday class! It is good to keep in mind that every other Thursday we offer an intro for complete beginners between 7.00 and 7.30 pm. Please check our Facebook page for more info.

You don’t need to bring a partner as we rotate partners during classes. Just bring yourself, your feet and some comfortable shoes to dance in! You don’t need to go out and buy dancing shoes, just avoid very grippy shoes like trainers or very high heels – flat, smooth soled shoes which will stay on your feet securely are ideal.

Our Thursday evenings consist of two classes followed by social dancing. Our Fundamentals class starts at 7.30pm and is suitable for beginners, though everyone can benefit from working on their fundamentals so we recommend our experienced dancers attend this too. At 8.30pm is our Improvers+ class suitable for those who have been attending the Fundamentals class for at least 6 months, or have similar experience, and are comfortable with a series of moves. Just ask one of the teachers if you’re unsure!

We’re a friendly bunch and always happy to meet new dancers! Though if you don’t feel quite ready for a class why not come along for a free taster class at our monthly social the Jam Circle instead.

Thursday class times:

  • Fundamentals Lindy Hop: 7.30 – 8.15 pm (suitable for beginners).
  • Social Fun Time: 8.15 – 8.30 pm.
  • Improvers+ Lindy Hop: 8.30 – 9.30 pm (suitable for more experienced Lindy Hoppers).
  • Social Dancing and General Merriment: 9.30 – 10 pm (open to all).

Every other Thursday between 7.00 and 7.30 pm we offer an intro for complete beginners. On the alternate Thursday we do a solo jazz circle.

We teach something different each week so keep an eye on our Facebook page to find out what’s coming up!

We charge £5 per night, for students and any other concessions, a discount of £1 applies (£4). Please bring student ID or have a word with one of the Committee for concessions (low income, unwaged, in receipt of benefits etc). We operate a loyalty card scheme so if it’s your first time then please pick up a card and get your first stamp! Once you have a full card you can use it to come to a class or jam circle for free, or to get a discount on one of our workshops.
