Aside from partying your socks off every evening on the dance floor, throughout Saturday afternoon St Paul's will be open for tea, refreshments and a number of sessions as detailed below . We'll also have music on and board games available (feel free to bring your favourites too!) so you can hang out and relax when you're not dancing.  See the map and the schedule.  All these events are free for CLX participants.

Yoga with Laura

Limber up for the weekend and revive your body & mind with Laura from www.bseyoga.com

Gentle Hatha Yoga suitable for all ages and abilities.

Learn traditional asanas (poses) to stretch & strengthen the body, a moving meditation for focus & co-ordination & a pranayama (breathing exercise) for mindfulness. Finishing with a guided relaxation to set you up for the rest of your day!

There will be limited mats available, please bring your own (or a towel) if possible.

Due to limited space you need to preregister with a partner for this class, you'll need your CLX booking ID numbers (see your registration email) and please fill out the form (live soon).

Acrobalance with Janet and Barny

Barny and Janet are acrobatic rock and roll dancers and acrobalancers - we enjoy turning people upside down / being turned upside down; lifting and throwing people / being lifted and thrown; and generally stacking people in interesting combinations.

In this taster session we'll teach you some basic two person lifts and positions, with one person being the "base" and one the "flyer" - but there's nothing to stop everyone trying both roles! We'll mainly focus on the slower-tempo balancey side of things, with controlled smooth transitions between static positions, but towards the end we may also include a couple of more dynamic moves of the kind you could slip into dance choreography. No acrobatic or gymnastic experience is required, and you don't need to come with a partner.

Due to limited space you need to preregister with a partner for this class, you'll need your CLX booking ID numbers (see your registration email) and please fill out the form (live soon).

 

Biscuit decorating with Danielle
