Easy, fun & cheeky choreo for La La Land 

Monday 26th June

@ TLC, St Barnabas Church Hall, Lodge Road, SO14 6QS

Directions


No booking required - just turn up and have fun

Whether you liked the film or not (I loved it), I am teaching a fun, cheeky and very easy choreography to the (edited) track 'Lovely Night' from the film La La Land. This is a fantastic jazzy number and the choreo is designed with easy options for Absolute Beginners who haven't danced before, and has more advanced options for those who have. It's going to be a walk in the park (figuratively speaking)!

Everyone is welcome for the one hour class - even children dancing with their parents! So feel free to bring your non-dancing friends too

It's going to be such fun so join us for a one-off super special:

8-9pm Fun Choreo for the edited 2.5 minute track
with Tracie & Claire
9-10pm Ballroom social party, where we play constant music for those who have danced Ballroom/Latin before. Interspersing this with a dancing game and Cha Cha & Charleston line dances

10pm Close

Entrance £5 (£3 NUS & kids) for 1 hour
or £8 for both hours

Free tea coffee and Claire's goregous cakes!
It's going to be AWESOME!

Please note this event no longer sells out, as we have more capacity with 4 rooms open - so the event no longer sells out.  You can purchase your tickets on the door, but they will be more expensive

Ticket prices range from an early bird £22 to full price £30

Students with ID £15 anytime and on the door (if NUS students are not able to pay for tickets at TLC Classes, please bring your ID with you on the night of the Ball and pay £15 cash on the door)

Tracie monitors not only the ratio but also the dance floor capacity, so when ordering tickets, please specify full names and whether you dance Salsa, Tango, Swing and / or Kizomba. This is not to restrict you in any way, just to ensure an enjoyable spacious night of dancing for everyone.

As we now have 4 rooms open, we have more capacity and therefore tickets will always be available on the door - but please note we only accept cash on the door - no cheques or cards.

Dress to impress for this spectacular event

DRESS CODE & INFO

Tracie is always asked about the dress code at this event, so when she says 'Dress to Impress' , here's the deal:
The Guildhall is very opulent and elegant, so you will not feel out of place in black tie or danceable posh frock.

Guys - there are a lot of people (over 60%) who take the opportunity to wear black tie/DJ and make the girls feel special, however Tracie never specifies 'black tie', as some people don't like it, can't afford it etc etc. So just wear something smart to impress the girls - and that will be fine - just no jeans!

Girls - you always make the effort to impress the guys, so just go glam as usual!
