By Popular Demand..

Monday, November 14th, 2011

Dear Showgirls,

By popular demand we have booked in another Back In Time Workshop for 2012!

Venture back to the 1920’s and travel through the decades to the 1960’s whilst learning a feast of vintage dance styles.

Learn the knobbly knees quirky style of the 20’s Charleston, then the infectious kicks of 30’s/40’s swing dancing. Pick up the pace even more with some twists and flicks of the 50’s jive (no partner needed!) and then save your last bit of energy for the psychedelic style that is 60’s go go dancing!

Get a group of you together and book onto our Back In Time workshop for a truly enjoyable dance experience.

Workshop date: Saturday 17th March 2012 at Wilder Street Studios, Bristol, BS2 8QA

Time: 1.30 – 3.30pm
