BBYY AANNDDRREEWW DDIITTTTMMEERR SWINGERS and groovers in Darwin should rejoice, as one of Australia's best is coming to show off his moves. Jake Meadley, aka SpinCat, one of Australia's best swing dancers, will arrive in Darwin next week and will give lessons around town. Meadley, who was an Australian Ballroom competitor before falling in love with swing, said people from all dance levels can get something out of his lessons. "We give people an introduction into what swing dancing is," he said. "There is a myth about what the basics are, as it actually has a couple of different forms, but we will be showing off styles like the Charleston and Lindy Hop." Meadley said he made the jump to swing dancing because he felt he was "plateauing" as a dancer, and found a fresh new passion through the music and moves. "I came across with a group called Swing Patrol (who Jake now teaches with), and there was just this buzz," he said. "A lot of that has to do with the music, as it's a fresh kind of music, even though some of its 70 years old, it still feels fresh and invigorating, just makes you want to move." Meadley will be teaching at various spots throughout the week, starting at the Cavenagh Hotel today at 6.45pm with the Hot and Cold Jazz Band for a free introductory dance lesson. A free social dance will be held at the Nightcliff foreshore on Friday from 5.30pm. On Saturday, Meadley will host two group classes from 10am at Chambers Crescent Theatre at Malak Shopping Centre where people can learn the basics, before taking part in Darwin's first social "Swing Pit" from 2pm to 6pm. He will cap off a fantastic week by taking over the Mandorah foreshore, where he will teach from 10.30am some advanced moves before dancing away the afternoon to the Hot and Cold jazz band at the Mandorah Beach Hotel. "I really enjoy performing outdoors, being under the sun with a live band, you just want to swing, and you can just be free." "Its great exercise, and you can express yourself to music, plus you get a great interaction between other people and dancers in a relaxed social setting," he said. Group lessons with Jake Meadley on Saturday and Sunday cost $20 per person, while the Swing Pit costs $10 entry (free with any lessons) at the door. People can pre-book two classes plus the Pit for $35, or three classes plus Pit for $50. Places are limited and bookings essential.

SSwwiinngg bbyy aanndd lleeaarrnn hhooww ttoo rreeaallllyy ggrroooovvee Top Australian swing dancer Jake Meadley, aka SpinCat, will be in Darwin next week and will give lessons around town IIF you've got a currycraving in Darwin, youwant to visit Caf Kashmir. Caf Kashmir has been giving Top Enders a taste of India for more than 14 years. Bobby Bali came to the Territory in 1984 and has been cooking up tasty dishes spiced mild, medium or hot to suit the Australian palate - since then. After a couple of relocations, the caf is now settled at 2 Pavonia Way in Nightcliff. Caf Kashmir serves fare from the north of India with a variety of vegetarian, beef, lamb, chicken and seafood dishes. "The north of India is of the Punjabi custom and we are very good at eating," Bobby said. "There are a lot of different dishes and good variety, so we have nearly 100 dishes on our menu." Most of those are priced $15 to $16 or cheaper. Complement your meal with any one of 10 Indian breads, including garlic and cheese naan, plain and whole flour breads. Enjoy an entre of samosas or pakoras then finish with Indian sweets. Caf Kashmir takes group bookings for up to 60 people and ensures even those who don't enjoy curry can have a good night with a selection of non-Indian dishes. It is open Monday to Saturday nights for eat-in or takeaway meals and is fully licensed. 19Sun Newspapers WEDNESDAY October 14 2009SPECIAL ADVERTISING FEATURE 16br09/0916br07/09 Your Local Dining Guide Enjoy!
