For anyone interested in the vintage scene, dance history, or for anyone who likes to bop along to music from Hollywood’s Golden Age! Come along and have fun learning the cheeky Charleston from the 1920s, the elegant dancing of the 1930s, the swinging Lindy Hop from the 1940s, and the classic jive and rockabilly of the 1950s.
Friday night classes – Grittleton Village Hall, Grittleton, Chippenham, SN14 6AP
- Friday 8.15pm-9.45pm: Beginners/Improvers* Vintage dance class, £8
♥ The first half of each class is danced solo to help you get acquainted with vintage jazz (‘breakaway’) moves and the famous ‘strolls’ which are danced at vintage events all over the world; such as the Rockabilly Stroll, New York Stroll, Charleston Stroll & Sing Lim Charleston Stroll, Shim Sham, Jitterbug Stroll, Tranky Doo, and Mama’s Stew!
♥ The second half of each class is danced with a partner, where you will learn 8 beat Swing (Lindy Hop!) and 6 beat Swing. These are fun and energetic dance styles; you will get to know the fundamentals in each style while developing a great sense of style and rhythm!
Complete beginners, couples and solo dancers are always very welcome – all you really need are shoes with a smooth sole to help you turn without sticking to the floor and a smile – looking forward to seeing you at a class or Tea Dance soon!
As with any type of exercise, please consult your GP if your health or day to day aches/pains will affect your ability to safely participate. You are encouraged to take things at your own pace during each class, to use your own judgement and to rest whenever you need to.
