Musicality class with the Shirt Tail Stompers

We are excited to announce that The Shirt Tail Stompers will be running their musicality class for us on the Saturday. Learn the different forms of swing music and the roles of the instruments. Also, how to use your ears to bring your dancing closer to the music. From listening to individual instruments, understanding the importance of melody and how to react to dynamics; this fun and interactive class will open your eyes and ears to a world of new possibilities in your dancing.


Respect for your fellow dancers

Here at the Edinburgh Lindy Exchange we are dedicated to providing a safe and enjoyable, social dance experience for everyone. We ask you to respect your fellow dancers by following our Code of Conduct. Thank you from the ELX team.
