Weekly Classes and Social Dances
Summer Festival of Tasters
Every summer at Lancaster Lindy Circle, we like to do things just a little differently, and this year is no exception. Our Thursday classes will be dedicated to topics which are a little unusual - be that a new style of dance you may not have tried before, or a fancy new set of tricks which the teachers find hard to weave into a normal class structure! Each Thursday will feature a 90 minute class followed by lots of social dancing. £5 for the night with our usual £1 concessionary discount.
Thu 1st Aug - Aerials Taster
Week 1, 1st August will see Lancaster's own Becky and Alex teaching you Aerials! You will need a partner for this class as we will not be rotating partners through the class. Wear some comfortable clothing preferably avoiding things that can get easily caught such as lots of zips etc.
Thu 8th Aug - Argentine Tango Taster
Week 2, 8th August will see the return of Tango and Salsa extraordinaire's Kate and Stan to teach you Argentine Tango! This is a beautiful dance to watch and can be danced to a variety of music so an excellent one to have in your dance arsenal. If you want to make your Tango dancing into a regular thing, check out their Tango Tuesday classes at the Royal Station Hotel in Carnforth.
Thu 15th Aug - Ballet for Lindy Hoppers
Week 3, 15th August will see the super talented Ali Marlow of Lancaster Dance Centre bringing us Ballet for Lindy Hoppers! This will be Ballet aimed at adults with a focus on how it can improve your swing dancing, improving your turns, ways to express yourself in musical breaks etc. To find out more about Lancaster Dance Centre and their classes check them out here: http://www.lancasterdancecentre.co.uk/

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! £5 on the door, or £4 for concessions (students/retired/benefits).
Due to Swingtoberfest in September and the Winter Ball in December there will be Jam Circle for those months, however there will be plenty of social dancing at each of these events!
Lancaster Lindy Circle's second Swingtoberfest, and just like Oktoberfest it's in September! Sept 20th-22nd to be precise head to swingtoberfest.co.uk for full details!
Strictly Swing Winter Ball
2018 was our first charity fundraising ball and it was so popular that we thought we best have another! A strictly style competition where volunteers who are complete beginners have 2 months to learn to swing dance before showing off their skills to an audience and a whole evening of wonderful swing music to dance your socks off to!
