I hope you have had a good festive break and are looking forward to the new courses this year. It was an early start, without much chance to recover from New Year before getting right back into it with the Quickstep & Rumba.
Please note that the Chilwell Foxtrot & Cha Cha course is starting a week later due to work being carried out in the hall. This means there will be a weeks break on February 20th, but no break for Easter I’m afraid. Mapperley Classes stay the same.
Also the Foxtrot Workshop is now on the Sunday February 17th. I know the 10th would have been more useful, but the date wasn’t available.
Fortunately the Start Dancin’ website is back up and running again and so details can be found there.
Tickets are now available for the Valentine’s Ball at the Council House Ballroom. This is on Saturday February 16th with dancing starting at 8.00pm until 10.30pm. Again dress is smart – it is good to dress up at times – and bring your own drinks and glasses. Tickets cost £18 each and are limited to 60 so let me know if you wish to join us. Email
The Prospect Room Dance
I have booked a Sunday afternoon dance at the Prospect Room at Wollaton Hall. It is an exciting venue for a dance as it is only accessible via a 67-step stone spiral staircase. This dance is on Sunday May 12th at 2.00pm until 4.30pm. There are only 40 places available so let me know if you want to come and dance here. Email
