Tuesday LaB is Ending

Featured

This post is to let you know that, after much deliberation, June 30th will be the final evening that Tuesday LaB will be a Lindy and Blues dance. We’ll be closing up and folding, due to a slow but steady decline in membership over the past couple of years. We have sincerely enjoyed being a part of so many of your Tuesday nights, but we simply cannot afford to continue to exist.

There are a few members of our scene who are interested in creating something new in its place, but that will likely not be for a few months, at the very least. If you’re interested in helping with the creation, feel free to reach out to us [lab(at)lindyandblues(dot)com], and we can put you in touch with the right people.

Although Tuesday LaB is ending in June, we’ll still be around for the next few weeks, and do sincerely hope to see you! It also stands to be said that our other weekly dances- Powerhouse Blues (blues dancing on Monday nights), Jazz Attack (lindy hop dancing on Thursday nights), and Rittenhop (lindy hop dancing on Sunday afternoons) will all continue to exist in their current formats.

If you have any further questions or concerns, feel free to shoot us an email or speak to any dance organizer. Thanks so much for your participation in our scene, and we hope to see you at Tuesday LaB soon!

Best,
Tara & Tuesday LaB

Tuesday LaB – 06/23/15

**We are sad to announce that after the end of June 2015, Tuesday LaB will no longer be one of our offered weekly dances. We are grateful to all of you for making our Tuesday nights so wonderful for so many years, but it is time to say goodbye. We hope that you will join us this month for our final weeks, so that we can all end this great event with many joyful dances.**

Here’s what’s happening this Tuesday night…

8pm Main Floor: A novice lindy lesson. Novice lessons are drop-in friendly, so they are a great place to start if you’re new to the dance. The first half hour of the social dance will have mostly Lindy music so you can practice what you learned right away (but we hope you stay for the whole dance, and also come back next week).

8pm Upstairs: This month Tuesday LaB is all about YOU! We’re hosting Ask Me Anything nights all through June. Having trouble learning that neato move you saw on YouTube? Could you use some feedback on your leading or following? Trying to perfect that effortless fancy flair? Come to our AMA Nights and ask the experts! Bring big ideas, questions, videos, anything!

Tonight’s AMA will be on Balboa with Kevin!

9pm -12am: Social dancing on the main floor!

Tuesday LaB nights cost $7 to attend (that includes both the dance and the lesson). No partner is required. We do not allow anyone to join lessons more than 15 minutes after their scheduled start time, so make sure to arrive on time!

Tuesday LaB dances and classes are held in the Ethical Society building on Rittenhouse Square (1906 S Rittenhouse Square). Hope to see you there!
