Every Wednesday from 7.30pm - Stroll Class
Join us for our online stroll class using Zoom. Strolls are choreographed routines which are danced to music from the 30s - 50s and are, despite being a modern invention, frequently seen being danced at vintage events.
The class begins with Steve leading a choreographed warm-up to music. He will demonstrate any new jazz moves which will be included. This is a great opportunity to learn new choreography and some musicality too.
Then, we will work through several strolls, revising/ teaching the steps before doing each with music at different tempos. You can ask questions so that you are confident.
We will regularly include the strolls which we teach in our in-person classes, but will also include others from time to time. Steve also has some stroll ideas up his sleeve so get ready to be taught some completely new strolls too.
The class lasts for around an hour and tickets cost £2 for each person joining us. We sell tickets via Eventbrite and a booking fee of 74p is added to each ticket by them. On booking your tickets, you will be guided to a page where you can find the details for accessing the class.
We look forward to seeing you there!
