We found a new venue - Firethorn Dance Academy by USF! We will resume lessons and the dance on June 29th & we will be bringing back the monthly beginner lesson series. More details will come soon. In the mean time, help us spread the word by sharing our Facebook event.
It’s with a heavy heart that we have to inform you that this week might be our last dance at our current location.
It is not yet conclusive, but there is a very good chance that Stars Ballroom will be closing and we will need to look for a new place. Again, this is not 100% decided, but we wanted to make sure to give everyone a head’s up should you like to plan to attend what will probably be our last weekly dance for a while.
We can’t predict what the future holds but we can tell you that we appreciate all of the support you’ve given us over the last year, and if last week’s dance is any indication of how much Lindy Hop is growing in Tampa Bay then just maybe we’ve been doing something right.
It’s been our pleasure to host a weekly dance, sharing our knowledge in classes, bringing in guest instructors and bands, watching all of you grow in your dancing and enthusiasm, and most importantly having an awesome time dancing with each of you. It really is amazing how much we’ve all developed in our dancing over the last year, and we sincerely hope everyone continues to grow and invest in this wonderful hobby.
We are doing our best to locate a new venue, but the truth of the matter is that it could be months before we’re able to start back up again. If you have any contacts for locations that could fit us and our needs, please let us know!
Please join us this week as we teach the Franky Manning 99th Birthday Choreography. Most of you know who Franky Manning is, and if he was still with us he would be turning 99 this month. So what is a more fitting lesson for our last dance than a tribute to the Ambassador of Swing!
Join us from 8pm to 11pm to celebrate one full year of the Lindy Connection! $10 at the door. Please bring food and drinks to help celebrate.
The Fruit Stand Jam Band will be playing music all night for your Lindy Hopping pleasure. They’re from Orlando, they play Jazz music for dancing, and they’re comprised of Lindy Hoppers. Simply put - they’re amazing.
So men, put on your dapper duds. Ladies, wear your best vintage dress. Pack up your dance shoes and get ready to party!
There is no 7pm lesson due to setting up the band. They go on promptly at 8pm - so show up early and don’t miss a single song!
