Dancing at the Playhouse

Nottingham Playhouse run a series of events called Classes and Courses and I have been booked to run a series of 1hour beginners classes on Saturday 17th August.  This is an exciting opportunity to learn or recap the basics of 3 dances in the Playhouse rehearsal studio.  More details are available on the Playhouse Website.

Wollaton Hall Dance

We had a fantastic time dancing in the Prospect Room at Wollaton Hall. After climbing the stone spiral staircase we were greeted by stunning views across the park and gardens. We had plenty of space for dancing and we left via the rooftop gangway. A great dancing adventure and one I’m looking to repeat next year.

Samba Workshop

Our next course is Tango & Samba so I am running a Samba Workshop on Sunday 2nd June.  See further details below or on the website.

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!

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.
