It’s that time of year again – the Annual General Meeting (AGM) for the Cambridge Lindy Hoppers Society will take place between the beginners and intermediates lessons on Wednesday 8th April 2015 at the Centre at St Paul’s (the usual Wednesday class venue). It will start promptly at 8:30PM.

No Balboa tonight – come and dance upstairs!

January 20, 2015 - 9:15 am No Comments

Due to the downstairs room at the USC being unavailable sadly Dusty Shoes Balboa class and social dance is not running tonight (20th Jan 2015)  – it will be back on the 27th Jan as usual.

Lindy Hop Class followed by dance night with the Last Chance Ragtime Band is still on upstairs at the USC from 7.30pm.
