April ’19

Newsletter

New classes in Waltz & Jive start on April 17th in Chilwell and April 18th at Mapperley, but before that there is a Jive Workshop on Sunday 14th April at Mapperley.  I will be teaching beginners Rock’n’Roll at 2pm with additional variations at 3 & 4pm.  The final session, at 5pm, I will teach a Latin Jive variation.

Please note that due to local elections on Thursday May 2nd we will be using All Hallow’s CE Primary School for the Mapperley class.  Thanks to John Graham for allowing us to use their School Hall.

All the tickets for the Wollaton Hall Dance are now spoken for.  This promises to be a unique event and a bit of an adventure!

There are more details below and at the Start Dancin’ website.


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. The 40 places are now taken but if it proves succesful I shall look into booking again.

The Valentine’s Ball at The City Ballroom on Saturday 16th February was a big success.  It was great to see the dancers who where dancing in public for the first time.  It can be a scary experience at first but it is what all those lessons are for.  Also a big thank you to all of you who supported this event.
I am pleased to say the raffle in support of My Sight Notts raised a fantastic £127 in memory of Mavrick Jnr Bailey, an inspirational fitness instructor for the elderly and an avid Salsa dancer.  Just Giving Page

I am now looking towards the new classes in April and the dance at the Prospect Room at Wollaton Hall.

Newsletter

We are getting ready for the Valentine’s Ball at The City Ballroom on Saturday 16th February.  It promises to be another enjoyable evening with great music, great company and of course great dancing.  There are a few tickets left so let me know if you want to join us. 
I am planning to hold another raffle and will be supporting My Sight Notts in memory of Maverick Jnr Bailey, an inspirational fitness instructor for the elderly and an avid Salsa dancer.

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.


Valentine’s Ball

There are a few tickets available for the Valentine’s Ball at the Council House Ballroom. This is on Saturday February 16th with dancing starting at 8.00pm through to 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 so if you have registered I would appreciate payment as soon as possible as the tickets are limited to 60.  There are still about 10 tickets left so let me know if you wish to join us.

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.
