May ’21


It is not long now until we can start classes again on 19th May at Chilwell and 20th May at Mapperley.

I will be teaching Jive (Rock & Roll) and Argentine Tango so we can stay within our own space and not be travelling around the floor.  I will be limiting numbers to 6 couples in each class and we will need to socially distance, also there will be plenty of ventilation.

NHS advice about washing and keeping a safe distance can be found here.

If all goes well I will be running another 7 week course over the summer.  I should be able to teach ballroom dances by then, so hopefully the course will be in Waltz & Cha Cha starting at the beginning of July.

I have had four sessions at the Memory Café at Middle Street Resource Centre in Beeston recently.  It was great to get back even though they were small groups to keep to restrictions.   These sessions are very different from my usual classes requiring dancing while seated and I was very rusty as I hadn’t danced for at least 4 months, but by the second session I was back into the flow. You can find more information about the Memory Café here.

Our dance in the wonderful Prospect Room at Wollaton Hall is booked for Sunday June 13th. As this date is still within the latest restrictions we ma not be able to hold it that weekend.  If not it may have to be June 27th.  There has been so many postponements and date changes I won’t blame you for wondering whether it will ever happen.  We will get to dance there again at some point I’m sure.

Another date to look forward to is Saturday October 9th 2021.  I have booked the fantastic Ballroom in the City Council House for another Autumn Dance.
