Dance! - Ed's journal
Er. I think I made a post here, but as I can't remember, here it is again.

Mad Hatters swing dance will be re-starting 'absolute beginner' classes, on September the 9th.
Venue is Trent Valley House WMC, Bedworth
20:00 (lessons usually start a little later).
Entry is a fiver, there's usually a raffle for some stuff, and a bar which is quite cheap.

No partner necessary, clothing is in varying degree from smart casual to smart to period. (You won't look out of place in jeans and a T-shirt, but some prefer to 'suit up'). Neither is experience - no experience is expected no presumed. There's also a 'not so beginners' class later in the evening, and usually some dance floor time to practice what you've just learned. And some times opportunities to try other stuff.

All very relaxed and friendly though - the 'regulars' I've found are very supportive of helping people learn, and will quite happily (provided they know) help out with getting something right/better/fancier.

Can probably offer lifts from Coventry, at least for the first couple (can't necessarily do so in an ongoing fashion though, as my working pattern sometimes makes it difficult to get in, get changed, get out and get there)

I've been thinking about giving this a try, although I'm so unfit I'm not sure how well I'd do! Would I perhaps be able to steal a lift to the first session and see what I think?

As said before I really want to. Still not sure about how up for this Paul is, especially since the first one will be the day before Mael and the second will be the day of my driving test....

I assume the 2nd is the week after, in which case I won't be able to make it as I have that whole "rotating shift" issue. Still, I'll probably do the first, see if I enjoy it, and then chat with them about the "issue".

Ed: you still doing this? And are the beginners classes still running?

Yes, I do. But sort of, as I've kind of been on hiatus over christmas and snow.
Beginners course is 12 weeks, so the last set finished.
New set starts ... err tomorrow actually.

ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS COURSE STARTS 8pm on Wednesday 20th January at Trent Valley WMC, New Street Bedworth CV12 9DL
