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 to everyone who supported New Life Dance at our Bright Colours Summer Dance on Saturday 11th August. The colourful photos are now on Facebook. A big thank you to Kate for her amazing live singing spot and all helpers including John, Cathy, Cliff and more. A very upbeat evening with lively music. Great to see Dawn and Peter join us and everyone who regularly comes to classes, workshops and events. More photos of workshops and classes to follow.

  • Important – Please Like Better Life Dancing and New Life Dance on Facebook to see the latest photos as they are downloaded!

  • The next monthly dance is on Saturday 8th September 2018, 7.30pm – 10.30pm at St Stephen’s Church Hall, Park Avenue EN1 2BA. You can book by phoning Martin or Elaine (see contact page) or on-line here. Book a table and bring friends. Tea/ coffee provided but feel free to bring your own food and drink.

  • 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. Watch out for the adverts in the next Dance Diary!

  • Thank you to everyone who came to the Viennese Waltz workshop on 14th July – well done! – and attended the monthly dance the same evening – a busy day! Also the Rumba workshop – good numbers and a big thank you to those of you who came along and danced as leaders. Great job. Stylish routine with variations on book moves to make it more interesting.

  • The next workshop is the fabulous Waltz on Saturday 15th September 2018 2.00pm-4.30pm at St Stephen’s Church Hall, Bush Hill Park EN1 2BA. Emphasis on styling, posture, footwork and timing to make your dancing look great. Short refreshment break in the middle. Good floor and parking. £20 per person.

  • 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: There is a summer schedule in place for the Friday Millfield House class (Millfield House is in the grounds of Millfield Theatre). The altered timetable over the Summer Hols is bookable on line. It includes single classes in ballroom and latin dances as well as socials and Argentine Tango. After the summer holidays Millfield classes will 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 which have proved very popular. Please book early – also see link at bottom of Home (front) page  to book summer classes

  • 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: There are no regular Dance classes at St Jude’s School, Englefield Green TW20 0NP, 7.30-8.30pm over the summer holidays although there may be a workshop. Classes resume on Monday 4th September 2018 and will run term time weekly. There may be a new absolute beginners class added followed by the intermediate class. I will update you in due course. Why not introduce your friends so they can try it out. Martin and Isobel – 27th July 2018 🙂
