And make sure you’re at the fair to see Jive and Lindy Hop teacher Jerome Anderson, and his partner Lindsay who will be stepping back in time to the fabulous 50′s, the age of big band swing and rock and roll. Using authentic music from the period, they will be performing fast paced kicks, flicks and spin dance moves. Come and see them dance in the new ‘old fashioned’ way!
