If music feeds your soul, then dancing definitely makes you happy! Latin dance, standard dance, line dance… there are countless ways to do it and every single one is unique. Although you can learn how to dance all year round, it probably is most enjoyable during summer time! Here is what dance classes are on the menu this summer!
Make that fringe shake in the wind!
Dresses decorated with fringe all over, shiny gloves and glittery headbands crowned by colorful feathers. We probably all know that image of a typical Charleston girl, but how many of us know how to do the dance?
If you have always wanted to learn how to dance the Charleston, then here is your chance. New five-week classes start next Wednesday at 7.30 pm at the Downs Infant School. For registration and more detailed information, see here.
Join the Brighton Lindyhoppers for a one-day crash course which will introduce you to the father of all swing dances, the Lindy Hop. First danced in New York in the 20s where it evolved with the contemporary jazz music, the Lindy Hop became really popular in the late 1930s.
During the afternoon, you will learn all the basic steps and have heaps of time to practice them with your partner (don’t worry, you can also come on your own and find a partner there). Flat shoes are recommended. The Good Companions
Saturday, July 8, noon to 4 pm. The Good Companions, 132 Dyke Road, BN1 3TE Brighton. For more information, click here.
Salsa open air!
No strict class, just having fun while learning the basic salsa steps and socializing with other passionate dancers under the open sky. Head down to the i360 on Saturdays to learn salsa moves and steps for beginner and intermediate level.
Next meeting is tomorrow at 7.30 pm at the i360.
Brighton Milonga Saturday!
If you are up for some amazing tango rhythms mixed up by a Portuguese DJ and got your tango moves ready, then this event is for you.

For those who aren’t too sure about their moves yet, there will be a one-hour workshop just before the milonga.
