St. Patrick’s Week Timetable and Social Night

Swing Dance SocialA big thank you to everyone who came out last weekend to help raise money for Enable Ireland.  We had a great afternoon in TKMaxx and a lot of people came up to us on the day saying that we brought a smile to their afternoon!  Well done to all.  See the photos on Facebook.

As St. Patrick’s day is Tuesday there will be a few timetable changes (See below).  We will not have class on Monday and Tuesday but there is normal service on Sunday and Wednesday.

Shim Sham Workshop and Social Night

On Saturday March 21st, we will be running a workshop and social night in The Galway Rowing Club, Woodquay.

12pm – Workshop – Learn The Shim Sham

The Shim Sham is the best known of all the solo swing dance strolls. It was choreographed by Frankie Manning, based on the original steps from the 1930’s, and it is danced at social nights around the world.

Everyone is welcome at this workshop, whether you are a new dancer coming to if for the first time or an experienced dancer refreshing your memory. Solo routines are a fun and easy way to improve your dancing. No previous experience or knowledge is required.

Cost: €15

Swing Dance Social Night

9.30pm – The Galway Rowing Club – €10

Catch up with your friends, meet swing dancers from different classes and get out on the dance floor to your favourite Lindy Hop tunes.
