On Saturday March 19th Swing Out West is hosting a day of classes with the wonderful Cat Foley, followed by an evening of dancing with theSandy Acre 7, and with a Tea Party on Sunday March 20th where you can show off your new moves!
Known for her infectiously fun style, Cat wears her heart on her sleeve and tries to bring fellow dancers into her world. She strives to bring out individuality, positivity and energy from her students, and believes that laughter really is the best medicine.
Cat has been lindy hopping since 2005 and established ‘Mersey Swing’, of which she remains creative director. After being awarded the Eurostar ‘Spirit of Lindy Hop’ award at ESDC 2013, Cat trained for 6 months with Swing Step Heidelberg, and went on to compete in the biggest contests in the USA and Europe. Cat now works with Swing Patrol in London, and travels worldwide to teach. She is also an acting member of ‘Impropriety’ an improvisational theatre company, and brings this creativity and unique style of performing straight into her dance.

The workshop will consist of three hours for leaders and followers of all levels. In this class you’ll perfect the fundamentals of connection and pulse, and move on to snazzy footwork variations and open leading that will allow you to get creative when the music inspires you.
Followers can also choose to be treated to an special additional hour of class, which will have you looking fabulous with tuition in swivels and turns.
The Sandy Acre 7 are fronted by our very own Chris Ryan, who loves nothing more than to get everyone dancing. An eclectic bunch, they will branch out from traditional swing to regale us with soul, funk, jazz, reggae, and northern soul. Read more at http://www.sandyacre7.co.uk/
