23 January – 9 April 2020
Cowley Cotton Club (CCC) is our main teaching night, on Thursday evenings during our term times. Terms are normally from October to December, January to March and April to June. There are 4 lessons aimed at different levels (2 classes taking place in parallel) followed by a social dance. every Thursday during our term time. You can come along on any week we are running – there is no need to wait until a new term and no partner is necessary as everyone gets mixed together! Most classes are Lindy Hop with occasional weeks of Charleston and Solo Jazz.
Classes run from 19:30 to 21:30 followed by social dancing until 22:30 then a trip to G&Ds for ice cream. Our classes are driven by technique but focus on teaching in an inclusive and fun way. If you have any questions, then drop us an email firstname.lastname@example.org
