I Can Mash Potato...
Well, actually I have two left feet, but this might just be the answer to my prayers! You can now learn to bop like they did in the fifties and sixties in the uber cool surroundings of The Shoreditch bar at the brand new Soul Underground night run by The Soul Dance Company. Instructors will take you through all the classic shimmies from across the decades including the ultimate in retro grooving - "the Twist". If tapping your feet in front of the class is not your thing, or if you are twinkle toes already, you can skip the lesson and go along to the DJ session after lessons end and strut your stuff. Word is, the cocktail menu is pretty sharp too, so you can always prop up the bar instead. We are practising our James Brown slides in the mirror already...
Ridiculously Good Mash Potato
Prices are £8 with the lesson and £5 without. The lesson runs from 7.15 for an hour with the DJ session finishing at 11pm on 8 June and 13 July.
The Shoreditch is on Shoreditch High Street - nearest tube is the same.
