Jitterbug, Bruno Mars and Thankyous ! !

Firstly what a laugh we had at the Jitterbug Strolls workshop ! ! Guys thankyou so much for coming and supporting us. We enjoyed it as much as you did. A film of it is on Facebook which has been viewed over 1000 times so far..... OMG ! !

Secondly a big thankyou to Danny Griffiths for supporting Claire Nicol at our first class of the new Lindy Hop Term on Monday. I was having a rather fabulous time with Mr Bruno Mars.  Thanks guys for holding the fort for me.


Balboa Workshop with Roman and Andrea

Hi Guys, first of all thankyou so much Roman and Andrea for a brilliant workshop which really helped the improvers and tested the intermediates, including me ! A great turnout guys, thankyou all for your continuing support. Hopefully Roman and Andrea will return later in the year. 

Could have danced all night...

Thankyou everyone for making Friday night such a special night in Dursley. We remembered our friend Mitch in style, very emotional, well played guys.

Thankyou to Jon Clare and The Fabulous Dough Boys. Wow! ! ! Thanks also to Mark and his brilliant staff at The Chantry Centre (Lister's Hall) in assisting in making the night run smooth and easy. 

After huge feedback from you guys I am pleased to say I have rebooked Jon Clare and The Fabulous Dough Boys again for June 2nd. 

I usually overlook these people... my team of lady helpers. Thankyou xxxx

Hi Guys, 

I hope you all had a good summer, its the start of another term and I have started a blog.... It will be a surprise to many of you that I have my finger on the button when it comes to technology! I have many hidden talents ! ! Over the next few months I will be posting random stuff which I hope you will find amusing, interesting and useful. 

Anyway here is a film clip of the fabulous Nicholas Brothers who are amazing dancers. Fred Astaire described this dance sequence as the best routine in a film he had ever seen . From the film "Stormy Weather" the boys are dancing to "Jumpin Jive" Enjoy....
