What’s on at a glance and feedback

As well as our regular dance classes each week (see bottom of home page) this is what’s coming up over the next few months and feedback to all our dancers:

  • Thank you everyone who came to the Royal Wedding Dance on Saturday 19th May, it was a big success – very sorry if you didn’t get a ticket, it sold out on the last day.

  • The next Monthly dance is on Saturday 14th July, 7.30pm-10.30pm at St Stephen’s Church Hall, Park Avenue EN1 2BA – you can book a table with friends. Free short class about 7.40pm. Tea and coffee are provided but please bring your own drink and food. Modern music. Large floor and good parking.

  • Bookings for the Christmas Ball on Saturday 1st December with live band and New Year’s Eve Dance are now open. Please e-mail, phone or speak to one of us for details.

  • Please note: the Viennese Waltz workshop will now not be on 7th July due to a clash of dates. We are looking to reschedule it for 14th July (same day as the monthly dance) around lunchtime. Probably 1.5 hours at the URC Hall, Winchmore Hill. Cost £15

  • Thursday Class relocation and expansion – Thursday Classes have moved to  Raglan Junior School, Raglan Road, EN1 2NS starting at 7.30pm. See below!

  • Thank you everyone for your support at the new Thursday Classes at Raglan School. The Beginners class  now starts at 7.30pm (45 minutes long), followed by 10 minutes practice time. Improvers class starts at 8.25pm (45 minutes long) followed by 20 minutes social/practice time ending at 9.35pm.  This new class structure caters for those dancers wishing to develop their dancing and may incorporate medallist elements for those who wish to take their ISTD Ballroom and Latin exams. Cost is £7 for one class or £10 for 2 classes – both include practice time. You can either rotate (no need to bring anyone) or stay with your partner – either is fine 🙂

  • The Thursday dance classes offer a viable alternative to the Friday Millfield Classes which can fill up quickly and with waiting lists. Also you can simply pay on the door at Raglan (see above). Optional pub visit afterwards – usually at the Stag and Hounds, 371 Bury Street West, N9 9JW

  • Fridays: A new Millfield House class has been added (Millfield House is in the grounds of Millfield Theatre) making it 3 classes in total at different levels, starting with Beginners, Beginners plus followed by Improvers. There will be an altered timetable over the Summer Hols but all taking place on Friday mornings and all bookable on line. Once finalised, Martin will put details on this website.  The Millfield classes normally start at 10am, 11am and 12 midday over blocks of five weeks followed by a one and a half hour social starting at 10am. A big thank you to Enfield Council for their great support for the Friday dance classes for over 50s which have proved very popular. Please book early for the next set of classes – see link at bottom of Home (front) page  to avoid disappointment.

  • Thanks to everyone who came to the Quickstep workshop.  We covered various basic steps leading to a running finish, natural spin turn with bonus checked spin turn and reverse pivot leading to chasse and back lock (man). Well done everyone! 🙂 

  • Chasamba – Dance exercise class using latin and ballroom moves with Elaine. Classes running Tuesdays 10.15-11.15am at Holy Trinity Church Hall, Winchmore Hill, N21 3JF. Cost – £7 per person.

  • Please note: Dance classes at St Jude’s School, Englefield Green TW20 0NP, 7.30-8.30pm are running term time weekly. Why not introduce your friends to this class so they can try it out. Martin and Isobel 🙂
