We’ve witnessed a lot of ballrooms being lost to property development over the years (RIP Freemasons’ Hall 😢) so it’s beyond thrilling to have contributed to the restoration of one! It’s been a long time coming but we’re now just a couple of weeks away from Manchester Lindy’s first official dance at the glorious Stretford Public Hall 😍🥳❤️

We’ve missed dancing.

This is Lara, Lara is 12, when she was a baby she had a slightly different version of the condition that ML’s Paula’s daughter was diagnosed with age 6, Haemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis.
The invasive treatments for HLH affected Lara’s growth, so she’s smaller than you’d expect for 12...

...unlike her voice, which is much, much bigger than you’d expect for 12!

Lara also plays Jazz piano, and is learning trumpet. Her instagram account (run by her mum) is full of Jazz, swing and lounge classics, this one is a blues number.

We really hope to one day hear Lara sing with a full band. Maybe we can help make that happen in the future times?

Dunno when we’ll actually be able to safely dance again, virus-wise, but here’s a cheering thought - the dance floor at Stretford Town Hall is now refurbished and waiting for us! ❤️

Miss you!

Black Lives Matter.

To be clear: There is no room in our community for racism or discrimination of any kind. Lindy Hop is a Black dance. May we never forget that and may we all step up together to do more and to do better.

Thanking NHS Frontline Staff

Hey dance chums!

Manchester Lindy have started this fundraiser off by donating the proceeds of our 2019 Xmas party - £310 😍

Our local hospital trust is preparing for staff sleepovers - I know pretty much every one of us has got money worries right now so I don’t expect to hit the target but if you’ve got a spare couple of quid that could go towards buying a toothbrush or a pot noodle for a frontline NHS worker in MCR you could chuck it in here.
Funds go directly to the charity, charity staff will spend it on whatever the staff need.

They are asking for donations of goods, but can only accept those goods in bulk from businesses due to obvious infection control issues.
I asked one of the charity staff what I could do to help from home and this is the result 💚

Tonight at Manchester Lindy: Improvers, you’ve been waiting for it…Putting jazz into your partnered dance! Leanne and Rachel will be pulling out all the fab moves to make your dancing look awesome!

Beginners, its time to nail that all-important swing out with some handy techniques from Soph and Andrew. I’ll be hosting the Swing Surgery. If you’d like a 10-minute slot to work on your dancing, book in at the door on your way in, but be quick as there are only 3 slots available. See you on the dance floor!

@swingstepdance (Berlin) are our Tuesday night dance twinnies (I’m thinking like ‘twinned villages’ circa 1980 😂). They are setting a dance floor challenge each week, and they’ve kindly agreed to let us play along! Here is tonight’s... what do you reckon? They’ve invited us to come up with some challenges to share too! ❤️😍👯‍♀️👯

Norma Miller serving opulence! Here’s an example of one of my Norma Miller Global Stories: One time, while at my Mom’s house for dinner, Norma and my Grandmother where talking about life after death. Norma insisted that she didn’t believe in an afterlife. My grandmother asked her “But Norma, what about your soul?” To which Norma immediately replied “Honey, the only soul I know is James Brown.” .

A little while back, Manchester Lindy bought community shares in #stretfordpublichall. Today, Sid and Paula attended the AGM and are very happy to report that phase one of the ballroom renovations (strengthening the floor!) is complete and phase two will be starting early next year. We are beyond excited at the thought of bringing vintage dance back to this historic #ballroom. Manchester has lost so many of it’s period dance halls and cinemas that it’s truly fantastic to witness one coming back into use. Watch this space for future updates (and follow the hall itself at @friendsofstretfordpublichall) 💃🏻
