August Newsletter (Medina Lindy Celebrates 1 Year of Dancing)

Hey Medina Lindy Hop Swing Dancers,

I’m back! I had a wonderful time taking Lindy Hop classes and dancing the long northern nights away in Herräng, Sweden this past month. I learned a ton and had a blast, and I look forward to bringing that knowledge and fun into our classes over the next year.

Summer is rushing by, but we do want to pause to mark a remarkable milestone. Our August dance will mark one full year of Lindy Hop dancing in Medina. In a way it’s hard to believe we’re only a year old. I’m so grateful to everyone who has supported Medina Lindy over this past year. We’ve built something special in an extraordinarily short time, thanks to you. Please keep on coming, dancing, and spreading the word. And please come celebrate our one-year birthday with us on Thursday, August 17th with dancing, cake, and festivities!

  1. August Birthday Dance: Medina Lindy’s birthday celebration dance will be held at our usual time on the third Thursday of the month, August 17th. We begin at 7:30 with a free introductory lesson at 6:30. Come out and celebrate with us!
  2. Lessons are Back:  Monday night beginner progressive lessons are back.  Our first lesson in August will be on Monday, August 7th at 7:00PM. This month’s lessons will focus on connection, movement, and rhythm. I’ve brought new material with me from Herräng, Sweden for this month’s series.  I’m excited to add this new topic to our curriculum.  Reminder: Beginner lessons are on the first three Mondays of every month and no experience is necessary.
  3. Fall Dance Dates: Mark your calendars for fall dances: Thursday, September 21; Thursday, October 19, and Thursday, November 16. All dances start at 7:30 and begin with a free lesson at 6:30.

That’s all for now. Enjoy the latter half of summer, and we’ll see you on the dance floor.
