Let us Swing! Let us Swing! Let us Swing!
On Thursday December 12th, please join us for our Christmas Social with live music from King Louis and the Primas. On that night we won’t be running any classes. We will have a DJ from 7.30pm nicely warming you up for the band on stage at 8pm.
Tickets are available on the night at £8 for members and concessions, £10 for non-members.
BYOB and we’ll provide the snacks.
Dress Code (optional): festive sparkle!
When we return on Thursday 9 January 2020 we will be piloting changes to our Thursday night structure as follows:
7:15-8:10pm: Technique and Core Moves – replacing Level 2 and at an earlier start time. Dancers are encouraged to stay and work on refining basics or learn new moves after this class.
8:15-9:10pm: Fundamentals Eight Beat and Fundamentals C/S (Charleston/Six Beat) – replacing Level 1 and at a later start time. These will rotate per term.
8:15-9:10pm: Advanced styling and Improvisation – replacing Level 3 and at a later start time.
9:15-10:15pm: Social dancing – a later start time but extended social.
Why is this happening?
We have received feedback from our members that it can be challenging to learn new skills late at night hence the decision to bring class start times forward. It also means we get more time for social dancing – hurrah!
Prices will remain the same: £6/5. Don’t forget our 10 Class Pass Card!
The ESDS is pleased to announce a money-saving “Class Pass” card, which can save you £5, or lets you treat someone you care about to a whole block of classes!
Simply buy the card on a Thursday night (with either cash or cheque – sorry, we can’t take cards) and then you can simply present the card for stamping on Thursdays instead of having to carry cash.
What’s the cost?
- £45 for members
- £55 for non members.
- The card is valid for 10 Thursdays over 2 terms.
- Cannot be used on band nights).
- Not transferable
- Not refundable.
Please join us for our end of term social dance with live music from Ali Affleck and The Bedlam Swing. Thursday, 25 July 2019 from 20:30-22:30
We look forward to seeing you there!
From the start of the next term (13th June) we are increasing our prices slightly (for only the 3rd time in 23 years!). The entire evening will still only cost £5 for members, students, and concessions (previously £4), or £6 for non-members (previously £5), so is still cracking good value!
