June 17, 2016 - 12:02 pm Comments Off on Winter Comfort fundraiser Swing Dance

Come and join us for a fabulous evening of Swing, all in aid of Wintercomfort, a Cambridge charity supporting the homeless or those at risk of losing their homes.

From 7:30pm – 11pm at St Paul’s, Hills Road, Cambridge.

Can’t dance? No excuse! Fun taster class at 8 to 8:30pm

Shellac Shake! After the taster class we will be taking you on a trip into music history and spinning the finest swinging tunes for your dancing pleasure from original vintage 78rpm shellac records, just as the artists and bands intended! Not an iPod, CD or laptop in sight! A rare treat not to be missed.

We will also be running a delicious cake stall!

£10 on the door. All money go to Winter Comfort, Cambridge Lindy Hoppers is covering the expenses of running the event.

Wintercomfort supports people who are homeless or at risk of losing their homes in Cambridge. See www.wintercomfort.org.uk
This event is in memory of Josie Camus and Michael Evans. Both were regular dancers and keen members of the Cambridge Lindy Hoppers and will be missed by all.

Wintercomfort was a charity particularly close to Josie’s heart, we aim simply to raise as much money as possible to help them continue their invaluable work with the homeless in Cambridge.

This event is also part of our Lindy Hopathon dance marathon, see more details here!

Hideaway Hop back at the USC – 31 May 2016

May 30, 2016 - 5:50 pm Comments Off on Hideaway Hop back at the USC – 31 May 2016

The Hideaway Hop is back at it’s usual venue of the University Social Club tomorrow night (31 May) with a newly refurbished floor and to kick the return off The Accidentalists will be playing!

As usual Lindy Hop class suitable for complete beginners at 7:30pm, Balboa class downstairs 7:30pm (fundamental steps for complete beginners 7:15pm).

Unfortunately due to increasing venue costs we have had to slightly increase the price to:

Band night: £7 (non-members) / £6 (members)
DJ night: £6 (non-members) / £5 (members)

I hope you will agree that this still represents excellent value for money!
