From 1st May 2013 classes on Wednesday will be changing.
The Beginners and Intermediates classes will be switching times so the new schedule will be:
7:30pm – 8:30pm: Intermediate class
8:30pm – 9pm: Social dancing
9pm – 10pm: Beginners class
10pm – 10.30pm: Social dancing
Still at the same location - The Centre at St Paul’s on Hills Road, see the classes page for directions.
We’re sure this change will be a positive one for both our Beginners and Intermediates and while we appreciate that it may not be convenient for everyone the benefits will make it worth while. We’re hope this will encourage more interaction between the two classes which will benefit both and ensure that Beginners are not excluded from post-class socialising.
Cambridge Lindy Hoppers are delighted to present an Aerials Workshop with Andy Fleming in Cambridge on Saturday 9th March 2013.
See the details here: Aerials Workshop with Andy Fleming
The Annual General Meeting (AGM) for the Cambridge Lindy Hoppers Society will take place between the beginners and intermediates lessons on Wednesday 20th February at the Centre at St Pauls (the usual Wednesday class venue). It will start promptly at 2030.
You can read about the AGM in the constitution on the website here but in summary the agenda will be:
- a review of CLH activities in 2012;
- a review of CLH finances in 2012;
- election of a new committee;
- any other business, general discussion and feedback.
Electing a new committee is an important part of the AGM. If you think you’d like to stand for a position on the committee, please do talk to one of the existing committee about what it involves. It’s great to get new people involved . Dancing skill or experience is not important, what is important is enthusiasm and being to commit significant time and effort to helping with running CLH and all the behind the scenes work that goes on.
There is a maximum of eight committee members – President, Treasurer and six general committee members. Anyone standing for a position must be a current CLH member, and be proposed and seconded by two other CLH members. CLH members can only propose or second one nomination each.
If you do want to stand for a position on the committee, please send your name, the names of your proposer and seconder, the position you are standing for (President, Treasurer or general committee member) and a paragraph on why you think you’d be a good member of the committee, to James the President using james (at) cambridgelindy.com by the end of Friday 15th February.
If there is no competition for committee places (i.e. nominations for one President, one Treasurer and six or fewer general committee members) the society will be asked to approve the committee on a ‘general aye’.
If there is competition for places an election will be organised at the AGM. Please note you must be a current CLH member to vote in any election.
Please do come along to show your support for CLH and have an opportunity to get involved and give your feedback – there will be some time for general discussion on any points people raise.
