What’s on at a glance and feedback

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

  • Thursday Class relocation and expansion! Sadly we are having to call time on our Thursday class venue at St Michael’s Hall, as the dance club is expanding and we need a bigger hall with good parking in nearby roads and different level classes. The Thursday class is very sociable and we have very fond memories of this venue. Thank you to Peter Newbury and Father Stephen for providing our first venue and being so helpful.

  • The new Thursday dance classes will now start at the earlier time of 7.30pm moving to Raglan Junior School, Wellington Road, Bush Hill Park, Enfield EN1 2NS. There will be a beginners class starting at 7.30pm, followed by an improvers class at 8.15pm, each being 45 minutes long followed by social/practice time. We may experiment with placing the 30 minute social dance slot either between classes or after both classes. We will let dancers know in advance. This new class structure will cater 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.

  • Our Thursday dance classes also offer an alternative to Enfield Council classes on Friday mornings at the beautiful Millfield House, which are are now full and oversubscribed with a waiting list. From April a new class will be included making it 3 classes at Millfield in total at different levels starting with beginners1, beginners2 followed by improvers. Please note there has been a misprint on the Council leaflet so please contact us to see which class you should be on. They classes on the next course in April will start at 10am, 11am and 12 midday. A big thank you to Enfield Council for their great support in the Friday dance classes for the over 50s which are very popular. Please book early (see link at bottom of Home page) to secure your place.

  • The Cha, Cha workshop was well attended and a lot of fun. A fast moving repeatable routine involving cuban breaks, spot turns, ‘there and back’, locksteps, natural top, basics, under arm turns and optional closed hip twist.  Very well done everyone. Lots of exercise. Please let us know if you would like to be included in our mailing list for upcoming dances, workshops and events. Thanks! Martin – info@newlifedance.co.uk.

  • The last Thursday evening dance class (7.30pm-8.30pm) at St Michael’s Hall, Gordon Hill EN2 0QP will be on 8th March before moving to Raglan School – see above! This is a very sociable group with some dancers’ going to the Moon Under Water, Chase Side for a drink after class.
