Fancy dancing in Cornwall? On a beach? In a cave? Our ineffable Chris is organising an amazing beach party at the cave on Chapel Porth Beach on Saturday 21st August (12.30-3.30). So take off your dance shoes and join us for an afternoon of surf and swing. Bring a picnic and swimsuit!
Here’s a selection of some great live music over the summer:
- 29th July – The Three Belles at Tregenna Castle
- 7th August – Winter Sunshine at The Smugglers Inn, St Erth Praze
- 8th August – The Blues Band at Events Square in Falmouth
- 12th August – Hits from the Blitz, Pencarrow House, Near Wadebridge
- 20th August – The Golden Eagle Jazz Band at The Union Hotel, Penzance
- 21st August – The Golden Eagle Jazz Band at The Smugglers Inn, St Erth Praze
As we hear of any other events we will of course advertise them on our Facebook page.
During the summer the amazing Great Western Jazz Company will be playing their normal Thursday nights at 5 Degrees West as well as some selected dates at the Princess Pavilion in Falmouth. There is plenty of space to dance so come along on 5th August, 19th August and 2nd September.
Swing Out West has been steadily growing over the past 18 months and we’ve now outgrown our current venue at 5 Degrees Below. From the 12th May we will be using the larger Woodlane Social Club (9 Woodlane, Falmouth TR11 4RG, see map below) near Falmouth University. There are a limited number of parking spaces on site.
The classes will remain on a Thursday and we will be sticking with the same times as before (beginners starting at 7.30pm and improvers at 8.30pm). We’ll then still be able to head to 5 Degrees West to dance with the marvellous Great Western Jazz Company after the classes (a mere 7 minute hop, skip and jump away). The cost of the classes will increase to £5. You can still buy our discount cards which will now be £40 for 10 lessons.
See you all on the dancefloor soon!
Hope everyone has recovered from an awesome weekend of dancing and an amazing workshop from Cat Foley. Thanks so much to everyone who came.
There will be no lesson this week due to it being the Easter Weekend but we will be back on 31st March. Looking forward to seeing you all then.
We can’t wait to dance with Cat. We still have a few spaces for dance couples and single leaders. We may open more single followers spaces nearer the time. Single followers – contact us if you’d like to be on the waiting list.
