The Meyer Dancers are putting on a four-week 60s go-go dancing academy at Central London’s favourite haunt, Drink Shop & Do, starting on Sunday 4th March. You can learn all the must-know original 60s moves and enjoy go-go routines, and even take part in a Shindig-Pans People-inspired music video, to showcase your new moves. “This is the Sunday school that every Vixen must attend,” say the Meyer Dancers.
Every session will start with a 60s workout to classic hits and floor-fillers, from bands like the Beatles, Wilson Pickett, the Supremes and the Castaways. Cardio go-go is designed to improve fitness in a relaxed and encouraging atmosphere. This will be followed by a step by step go-go class with classic 60s moves.
The go-go classes will work towards a short 60s-inspired video, which will be filmed on the final Sunday. The video will be professionally filmed and bespoke-made to showcase participants’ favourite new moves and provide them with a special keepsake.
Each session will close with a relaxed brunch and mini hair and make-up sessions, where the Meyer Dancers will provide guidance on creating the 60s cats eye make-up and a 15 minute beehive, among other things. Participants can also enjoy a glass of prosecco and a tasty brunch, courtesy of Drink Shop Do.
The course is open level and no dance experience is necessary. Everyone is welcome – you don’t need to be a woman to attend.
The Meyer Dancers are London’s 60’s go-go dance company. They have been performing together for five years, and have appeared alongside the Sonics, Geno Washington, the Trashmen and at several festivals, such as Glastonbury, Lovebox, Isle of Wight, Wilderness and Secret Garden Party. They have also featured in movies directed by Woody Harrelson and John Ridley. They also teach go-go at hen parties and birthdays. The dancers are inspired by the strong, feminine women in the movies of Russ Meyer and perform everything from mod to ye-ye and psychedelic, to suit any event.
