Weekly Classes and Social Dances
Our regular classes are held every Thursday in Lancaster at Our Lady's Catholic College, Morecambe Rd, Lancaster LA1 2RX. See our classes page for full information.
Monthly Jam Circle
Come and join Lancaster Lindy Circle and Bay Balboa for our regular dose of Sunday evening fun and games at the Gregson, with all the swing dancing, jazz and fine company that your heart could desire. We aim to host this event every month where we do not have another major social dance planned. Check our calendar or Facebook page for dates.
We will kick off the night with a Swing Dance taster class at 7pm for absolute beginners - perfect for non-dancing friends, new dancers and anyone wanting to see what all the Lindy Hop fuss is about!
From 7.30pm we'll have three straight hours of swinging tunes for dancing your socks off to, along with the usual cakey nibbles to keep energy levels up! £3 on the door, or £2 for concessions (students/retired/benefits).
We run workshops and other longer events during the course of the year.
Swingtober Fest with Cat and Cam Oct 20/21
Two days of classes with internationally recognised dance teachers CAT FOLEY and CAM MITCHELL !!! If you have not heard about them before (somehow?!), Cat and Cam are renowned for their positive, humorous, uplifting teaching style with a great focus on each student and allowing them to discover themselves throughout the classes and social dances themselves. (More info on Cat Foley and Cam Mitchell: http://www.catfoley.com/)
There will be 4 hours of classes on Saturday and 4 more on Sunday.
This weekend workshop is of thematic structure rather than typical "levels", which allows for everyone to learn something. The theme of the classes is "Substance over Flash", as voted on by the Lancaster Swing Dancers. We will be focusing on Flow, Musicality and Partnership. You should have all your basics down, but anyone from New to Experienced dancers will be able to take something away from this weekend. By working on the substance of your dancing both your basics and flashiest moves will improve.
The classes will be held at St Paul's Parish Hall (https://goo.gl/maps/scwviDgG8or). There is parking available outside.
Schedule for the classes:
Registration starts at 12:30.
Classes: 13:00-15:00, Break, 15:30 - 17:30.
11:00-13:00 class, Lunch Break, 14:00-16:00 class.
Saturday evening social dance will feature the energetic Alligator Gumbo at Rowley Court (Lancaster Masonic Hall) which has a lovely sprung dance floor alongside our wonderful DJs from Lancaster.
Sunday night, join us for a Lancaster staple, an evening of social dancing at the Jam Circle in the Gregson Centre.
