Route 66 Big Birthday Bash, take 2!

Hey hepsters!

10 + 7 = one hell of a big celebration!

On WEDNESDAY, JULY 6TH, we are having the rescheduled big celebration night at Route 66!  And, in a happy convergence, not only will we be celebrating 10 years of Jamie teaching in Dublin (reaching all the way back to Friday night classes at the YMCA on Aungier Street in 2001), but also July marks 7 years of Route 66 (going back to Wednesday nights at the Metropolitan Bar on the quays in July 2004)!!  HUZZAH!!!

The big party will be the same as previously announced: loads of cool dancing with loads of cool guest DJs, and the long-awaited debut of the Balboa/Blues room!  That’s right, get your groove on to some hot Balboa from 9 until 10:15(ish) and some even hotter Blues from 10:15(ish) until closing time!  Maybe we should call it the Hot Corner. 😉  And yes, we’ll be having Bal and Blues *every* week from then on!  HUZZAH!!!

So get yourselves down to the Turk’s Head on Wednesday, July 6th, and don’t forget to dress up in your best Swing duds to mark the occasion.  Be there or be square! 😉

(And that goes doubly so for anyone on the list who used to dance but, for one reason or another, got out of the habit.  Come on out for the night, even just to say Hi!  It would be great to see you again, and to thank you for helping to make this night so successful over the years!)

All the best,
Jamie and Clare

Changes to classes!

There have been a few important changes to the Monday and Thursday Lindy Hop classes! These changes apply to the upcoming sessions starting in September and onwards.

Monday Lindy Hop at Studio 2, Cecilia Street, Temple Bar, Dublin 2
Both the beginner and improvers classes will now be 6-week sessions and cost €70 per person per session (€65 for students). The times remain the same at 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. for the beginners and 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. for the improvers.

There is only a beginner class on here for the time being, with the hope to start an improvers class after a session or two. The class will now be a 6-week session and cost €70 per person per session (€65 for students). The time of the beginner class has changed. It is now on from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
