Teapots and Twirls hosts Kevin and Jo!Nov 09 2015 · Tea dances, Workshops
In early November 2015, lindy superstars Kevin St. Laurent and Jo Hoffberg brought a little bit of Californian sunshine to grey and chilly Leeds with a weekend of workshops at Teapots and Twirls.
The ‘Kevin and Jo Weekender’, as it became known, kicked off with a special Lindy Fridays at the very beautiful Corn Exchange. It’s always amazing dancing in such a fabulous setting and it was great to show this little corner of Leeds to our American guests.
Our two-day workshop began in Chapel Allerton bright and early on Saturday morning. It was a highly taxing workshop with a whole heap of things to retain in our heads, but Kevin and Jo made the whole thing so much fun that it was hard not to leave without a smile.
Team Saturday, BRINGING IT!
On Saturday evening we took our dancing feet just down the road for a Saturday social dance, with live music from our very own Tessa Smith and the Apple Jacks. We raised £110 in our Charity raffle for St Gemma’s Hospice and lots of fun was had by all.
And Kevin and Jo did a completely ace demo, which we watched in awe. Check it out below (sorry about the smallness – if you want to watch properly, you can view it and make it super-duper big here):
Ending in STYLE!
So after all that… the only way to get through Sunday was with lots of caffeine and cake!
Another great day with loads more amazing teaching.
Team Sunday, ROCKING IT!
Thanks for bringing your awesomeness to Leeds guys – come back soooon!
