JUNE SOCIAL 2017 

Video of one of the fun dances at our June social and medal presentation. Many thanks to you all for making the evening such a success again! It was a first social for some of you, judging from the comments you really enjoyed it. Also thanks for the food, a great selection and many thanks for the left overs!

  

 

 

 

APRIL SOCIAL

Above is a short clip of the fun Paso Doble dance we did at the April social. Not sure why its got the pictures, but press play and it should work! Have slaved for days to work out how to do it! 

 

           DANCE WEEKENDS AWAY!

For those new to our classes, for the last 2 years we have been running dance weekends away. These are held at the Paddocks Hotel, near Ross-on-Wye and we take over the whole hotel.

 We arrive in time for dinner at 7.00pm on the Friday night, you won't complain about the food, and then go into the large ballroom for an evening of social dancing and a lot of laughter!

On Saturday we wake to a large breakfast, then into the ballroom for workshops. Not quite sure what these will be yet, but will probably include a session on Viennese Waltz.

 We have breaks for coffee and lunch (the only meal not provided), a short workshop in the afternoon, then a chance to recuperate in the hotel or take a stroll around, if you have the energy.

We meet for dinner at 6.30pm, then again into the ballroom for more dancing, incorporating the dances we have been doing the day plus a lot of fun!

 The October weekend is now fully booked but I still have spaces in November. If you have any friends/relatives that would like to come, you are welcome to invite them. If they are non-dancing then they are still welcome to come to spend the evenings with us but they are free to do what they wish on Saturday! Please contact me to pay your deposit asap!! 

 

JANUARY 2017 SOCIAL!

We had another fantastic social on 28th January. i am so sorry that several of you were ill so had to miss it.

 Jade and Tom, a fantastic junior competitive couple gave us a fabulous demonstration of all 10 dances, or what it is to be young again!

 APRIL 2017 SOCIAL

 I have booked the Victoria hall in Broseley for our next social. we originally booked it for Saturday 1st and was then asked to change it to the 2nd. I have just been told that we can now have it on the 1st again. Please let me know asap if you would like to come and also which date suits you best.

 

ANOTHER DANCE WEEKEND! 

Once again we had a fantastic time at the dance weekends on 30th-2nd October and 28-30th October. Many thanks to you all for making it such a fun and enjoyable time! I will put more pictures on here if anyone can send me some! A provisional booking has already been made for next October!


 

BLACKPOOL 

We all had another great day at Blackpool Tower ballroom, sorry some of you were unable to make it due to one of our couples having their hen and stag do on the same day, I heard how you were waltzing down Chester high Street! However hopefully we can arrange another visit nest year!

 

 

MARCH SOCIAL

Thank you to all those who managed to make it to the social on the 12th, very sorry for those who couldn't come at the last minute due to illness. We did have 20 couples who enjoyed dancing and eating, many thanks to you all for providing such superb grub again, especially the chocolate cake!

 

WEEKEND AWAY!

We all had a fabulous time at the Paddocks hotel, at least I did, and judging from all the comments, so did you!

 

 

 SOCIAL MAY 2015

 Many thanks to you all for such a fantastic evening on Saturday.  We had 20 couples and I hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did!

 

BLACKPOOL 2015 

 

 

A couple of pictures to remind us of our fabulous outing to Blackpool Tower Ballroom.  We all had a great time swirling round the floor trying not to collide with people!  Many thanks to Catherine and David who made all the arrangements and provided the driver!


 

JANUARY 16th 2015

Thank you so much to everyone who came and made our social and the medal presentations so enjoyable. We had a fantastic  demonstration from Cameron Leitis and Jade Overthrow who are currently the UK leading under 14 couple and they were seventh at the National under 16 Latin championships.  They made dancing look so easy, but apparently they can practice up to 8 hours a day!

Here are some of our proud medalists! 

 

 

 EASTER SOCIAL 2013

Just a few photos of our  social.  Many thanks to everyone who came and also who brought all the gorgeous food! 

 

 

 

CHRISTMAS SOCIAL 2012

The Christmas social and medal presentation was held on 24th November 2012 at Swancote Country Club. We also had a demonstration from a fantastic young competition couple! 

A fantastic time was had by all, but although I had my camera with me I was having such a good time I forgot to take the photos! So as a reminder of last year, here are some snapshots to help you remember the evening.
