Northern soul dance class, Night and Day café, 16/07

Northern_Soul_Dance_School

Northern soul has always been part of my life as my parents identified as mods in their teens and 20s. Maybe I’ve got a more honed radar for the genre because of this, but I’ve noticed that it’s always in and out of the media spotlight. Most recently, Pharrell Williams and the Manchester Northern Soul Dancers paid homage at the BRITS but the Northern Soul Dance School’s upcoming workshop will give newcomers the opportunity to discover there’s more to the genre.

The school is already a festival favourite; party goers at Kendal Calling, Lunar Festival and Festival No. 6 have enjoyed the classes.

Manchester dancers will now get the chance to spin, kick and maybe flip (it’s a beginners class) around the Night and Day dance floor to classic tracks from the likes of Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, Marvin Gaye and Al Wilson… you know, the guy who sang that Snake song on the Lambrini advert.

Wed 16 Jul, Night and Day café, 26 Oldham Street, Manchester, M1 1 JNN. Tel: 8 to 10.30pm, £4, http://www.nightnday.org/event/northern-soul-dance-class/
