So there is always a good choice at the Loft. The Loft is a movement studio located in Newtown, Geelong and perfectly situated between the Barwon River and the cafe precinct of Pakington Street. They also offer classes in the riverside town of Inverleigh.
This will be on Friday 11th May, 2018 from 7.00 pm to 9.00 pm and it will be held at The Loft Dance & Yoga Studio, 7 Rutland Street, Newtown.
Grab some friends for a fabulous Friday night outing which will be fun, energetic, all retro style. Firstly, you will have a simple dance fitness warm-up aka Jane Fonda and then you will move on to learning a variety of short dance routines with classic retro hits. These hits could be things like some Michael Jackson, Madonna, Dragon, Brittany, Spice Girls or similar classics!
You can dress for the occasion which would make it more authentic, however, this is not a requirement of the lesson! But why not get out those "glad rags" and dress the part.
After the lesson, you will receive a complimentary glass of wine and possibly have some new friends to share this with. For those who do not drink wine, there is also tea and coffee.
The cost of this will be $30 and you can book here.
The facilitator for this event will be Jennifer Backwell who is an enthusiastic and caring person with a nice, calming influence.
Jen is interested in all things creative and well-being and enjoys practising art, dance, yoga and meditation. Originally trained in jazz ballet, Jen has been dancing and performing for over two decades now.
Jen was also a senior choreographer during high school for the Rock Eisteddfod, and she went on to dance in the Geelong dance group, New Beginnings, with Simon Vowels; Parallax Dance Company with Jordan Punsalang and teaching children at Karen Feldman's Dance Studio for many years.
Jen conducts this very popular weekly retro dance class at the studio and it is always full and great fun! For this event, you do not need any dance experience, and as mentioned, you can wear what you like, apart from high heels as they have a wooden floor which will mark if you wear heels!
If you cannot make it to this event, the studio has other events = as follows:
