Lindy Hop Improvers Four Week Course
Monday 23 April - Monday 21st May
7pm - 8.30pm
We're excited to announce our four week Lindy Hop Improvers Course! Suitable for people who have been on one of our workshops or our six week beginners course, or who have tried swing dancing before.
Continue developing your swing dancing skills! Joe and Tamsin will be taking you to the next level, as we go deeper into the technique of this partnered dance, as well as learning more steps and moves. The four weeks will be following in a similar format to the current Six Week Beginners course. It will be suitable for those of you who have been on our beginners courses or workshops, or who have previous swing dance experience.
We will be building on the foundations that you have learnt already, working on technique and confidence, as well as introducing you to some of the iconic swing dance moves such as swing outs and further Charleston moves. Our aim is to help you onto the dance floor so that you will be social dancing with confidence and joy!
The course will take place in the gym at the Steiner School (centrally located next to Victoria Park), Park Road, Frome, BA11 1EU. There is a large car park next to the gym.
For the six weeks (with 9 hours of tuition and practice):
£35 per person
£30 per person (if booking as a couple – lead and follow)
£30 concessions (or get in touch to discuss as we want our courses to be accessible to everyone.)
If you book on with a partner or a friend the price is slightly reduced to encourage even numbers of leads and follows. Men and women can choose to lead or follow! If you have any questions about which role you might prefer, please get in touch.

And about your teachers:
Tamsin set up Swing Time Frome with the aim of spreading the love of swing dance to her (now) home town of Frome!
She dances a variety of styles and attends swing dance classes and camps. She loves to both lead and follow. She is currently teaching with Swing Time Frome and Swing Motion Bath and performs authentic jazz/Charleston having worked with a number of dance troupes including The Bristolettes - https://www.facebook.com/bristolettes/. Currently she is practicing with the Jazz Hands dance troupe based in Bristol. She is also a musician and enjoys bringing out the playfulness and musicality of the dance in herself and her students!
Joe is a dedicated and experienced dancer, teaching weekly lindy hop/swing dance classes in Bristol and Bath. He also DJs and co-organises a monthly swing dance social night in Bristol.
He first fell in love with the dance in 2010 after attending a taster class. "I'd always loved early rock n roll music and so originally thought I'd give jive dance a go until a friend suggested I try swing. I was hooked straight away by how fun, varied and playful it is! Swing music suddenly came alive too and made so much more sense once I started partner dancing to it. That's what it's made for!" Joe still enjoys developing his dancing through attending workshops and dance camps in the UK and abroad, bringing back what he's learnt to share in his classes.
