Guided Practica Once a Month

418677_2333434154100_1797194671_1431040_987195923_nWe’re trying something new on Wednesday nights.  On the first Wednesday of every month we’re going to change the 8:30pm Hobart Hoppers class into a guided practica social dance.  ALL WELCOME!  The cost is $5, or if you’ve already done the previous two classes you get in for free.  Plus we’ll have teachers on hand who are there to answer any questions you may have about your dancing!

Some come along and get some tips on how to improve, and have some great dances at the same time!

All levels of dancers are welcome!

Well, check out these videos below to see a great performance of the Lindy Chorus for Frankie 100! (note the videos are the same, one of them is just in sepia, if you prefer that old time look…)
