What we do

Do you fancy learning to dance or are you already an expert?  Why not join our new ballroom dancing group?  The main emphasis of the group will be to enjoy dancing and to learn from each other.  We also plan to have regular tutor led sessions for those interested, and to enjoy existing local social dance related events together.

If you have any queries or to let us know you would like to attend, please email David Beare  or Ann Robinson

We would love to see you and remember: Keep dancing!

During the winter the Jive Group will run at the same place and times.

We've had a very encouraging response to the new ballroom dancing group which started in May. We are now getting a good regular attendance each week. There is a very friendly atmosphere as we all help each other with the routines we've been learning so far in the waltz, foxtrot, quickstep and cha cha cha. There is a mixture of abilities, so some of us are trying to unlearn bad habits, and others are learning brand new steps. We have benefited greatly from tuition from a retired ballroom dance teacher and one of his pupils, and from the more experienced members of the group. Great exercise for mind and body, and a lot of fun. Keep dancing!
