On 23 February Dance UK launched the 2015 Dance Manifesto with a beginners' social dance class hosted by the All Party Parliamentary Dance Group for all MPs.
The UK’s Jenny Thomas is regarded as the world’s leading lindy hop teacher and she has been a choreographer and performer for Strictly Come Dancing for the past eight years. Jenny will be teaching this class, with a special guest celebrity dance partner, Robin Windsor, British professional Latin and ballroom dancer, best known for his appearances in the BBC television series Strictly Come Dancing.
Sir Gerald Kaufman, Chair of the All Party Dance Group, with Frank Doran MP, Secretary, and co-vice Chairs of the group, Chris Heaton-Harris MP and Baroness Gloria Hooper will welcome you to the event and introduce the Dance Manifesto, followed by a short dance class, and then a swing DJ will play music for social dancing. Tea, coffee and refreshments will be served.
Lindy hop is a partner dance which originated in America in the 1920s & 30s. It evolved in Harlem, New York and was based on other dances of the day such as Charleston, jazz, tap and break-away.
