Back in day, Torch/Cats/mecca/L'ambassadour etc I/we never had tutors, we just copied other peoples best moves, then found a shop with a decent big mirror, used to be Evan the Outsize Shop here in Luton. Practice in front of it till you look good or better than they do or did, you'll know when you look good,

BUT and its a BIG BUT

Keep it tight, no arms and legs all over the place, it looks bloody messy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just get on the floor and do your thing mate, nobody will be watching, they will either be dancing themselves or talking bollocks. Forget the lessons because  you can't learn to feel that beating rhythm. Don't worry about what others are doing either, because in my experience, I don't know which record many dancers are dancing to, but it ain't the one playing.

There used to be a good place in Wigan called the Casino or something, but I think it has closed down now. Best thing to do is hang around in some venue in Burnley, Blackburn, Bolton, anywhere really, and watch the moves. Check out some You Tube clips perhaps. Having lessons is for dummies like when your parents paid for extra GCSE tuition. Best to teach yourself but watch plenty of others before hitting the floor - that way, you will know what NOT to do which is equally as important as knowing what to do.

Of course if you are doing that to Northern Soul I would go for wider trousers and a wrigglys belt .... the hat would be optional.
