So you’ve got the vintage look and are wondering what to do other than visit tea-rooms and fairs? Well literally the next step is to start vintage dancing. But if ballroom is too, well, ballroomy, then Manchester has a new American style Jive and Lindy dance class every Thursday 7-9pm at the Methodist Dance Hall (off Piccadilly Gardens and opposite Afflecks Palace). It’s great fun, fantastic music and a real vintage night out.
Absolute beginners are very welcome and vintage dressing is encouraged. Bring your own drinks and once a month “Blue Daisy” provide a pop-up tearoom on the stage.
Anthony & Stephanie have been teaching these dances in Preston for 2 ½ years and now bring 50 Boogie Woogie and Swing moves for you to “cut a rug” with.
And if these dances from the 30s and 40s aren’t your era, then go back a decade and learn the 1920s Charleston. Weekly dance exercise classes in the same venue make use of over 32 different Charleston moves. Ditch the lycra, leggings and leotards and exercise in style, with “Charleston Ercise” – the Vintage Workout – every Thursday 5.30pm – 6.30pm. Remember to “Stay Hydrated” with complimentary Vimto provided.
Also 7-9pm the second Wednesday of every month Anthony & Stephanie teach partner and group Charleston in the same venue. Formerly at Matt & Phred’s the class is now in this large dancehall with the oldest newest dance craze, the Charleston!
