“I like the people. I like the atmosphere. I think it’s quite social, comfortable and supportive.”
Nick is a Lecturer in Physical Chemistry. His dad is from Gibraltar and he has 2 cousins who play for their football team. Next year they play Scotland in the European Championships and Nick will be there with his dad cheering them on.
After a brief encounter with dancing in Bristol, Nick joined Lindy Jazz when he relocated to the North East in 2012; being new in town, Nick thought it would be fun and a great way of meeting new people. Thanks to Google he found a class that was close to where he lived and we couldn’t be happier that it was us!
His favourite Lindy Jazz memory is of social dancing the first year he went to DJam. When describing his first real experience of dancing in a crowded place, Nick said he actually felt more comfortable, learned a lot and found it satisfying… now there’s a commendation for social dancing!
As an advocate for trying new things, Nick says if you’re unsure of coming to Lindy Jazz don’t think about it too much and just try it. “There’s nothing much to lose from trying new things… It worked well for me”.
Nick’s final word was a massive thank you to both Joo-Lee and the team. He thinks having so many people involved is a good thing as it’s nice to be surrounded by supportive people. We couldn’t agree more!
Happy Lindy-versary Nick!
