Saturday 9 December - Christmas Tea Dance

Come and join us for a dance or just watch the others dance while you socialise and enjoy a cuppa. Anything goes at this tea dance run by Dance Social. Dance Social teach Modern Jive - which is an easy to learn partner dance - it is basically walking to music, so no fancy footwork to get to grips with. If you have some moves of your own, get up and do your thing on  the dance floor. If you don't have any moves, they will teach a few basic moves to get you up and moving! They will bring some of their regular dancers to help you get up and enjoy a dance or two or more.

Registration not required.
