Trisha Sewell; you loved her last time she was here and the Lancaster Lindy Circle Committee are thrilled that she is coming back to deliver SUGA BOMB!
What exactly is Suga Bomb?
Suga Bomb is Trisha’s boot camp follow workshop! Followers need to be encouraged to express their own personal individuality as a dancer. The curriculum promotes self-analysis, self-expression and experimentation without creative boundaries. We gain inspiration from other female dancers (old and new) but understand the value in being different. It is aimed at providing followers with a strong understanding of the required skills on which to develop their individual dance style and be an amazing follower.
Please note, this workshop is aimed at anyone who enjoys or has some experience in following, regardless of gender or primary dance role. We would love to see male dancers and those who consider leading as their primary role join us!
What we will learn?
How to become a ‘Dynamic Follower’, one that every leader wants to dance with, and how to be fabulously stylish and feel great doing it!
You will learn about ‘Body awareness’ through Posture, Tone, Energy and Direction.
You will learn basic ‘leading skills’ to help understand your role within the dancing relationship and how to make things work wonderfully.
You will look at making the most of what you have, exploring how we can practice body movement and exercises on our own in order to facilitate change and make improvement.
We will work on exercises and movements, such as the swing out and move variations so that we understand how all these elements fit together to enhance your dancing!
Trisha has a lifetime’s worth of experience to share with us – she will work us hard, so come prepared for a mental and physical workout, but we’ll leave on Sunday evening with all sorts of skills to make us better at following and to help us find our own unique voice.
2 days of classes, 4 hours each day
We shall host an evening gathering with a difference…Details TBC, but you can give your dancing shoes a break that night…
Full weekend tickets available for £70, and a limited number of single day tickets for £35.
Whilst we don’t need to worry about lead/follow ratios this time (hurrah!) there are a limited number of tickets available to keep class size manageable.

You will get the most out of this workshop if you have been taking lessons as a follow for around 6 months. LLC members, we recommend that you have completed at least all of our beginners blocks and have been social dancing regularly for a few months.
The full weekend shall be held at St Paul’s Parish Hall, Scotforth Road, Lancaster, LAS 4ST which is about a 15/20 min walk from the city centre and is on all the major bus routes. There is lots of free on street parking nearby.
