WINTER DANCE on Monday 20th November; 1930, Emmanuel URCOn the 20th November we will be having a WINTER DANCE rather than our regular class. This will be at the EMMANUEL UNITED REFORM CHURCH on Trumpington Street, and it will begin at the EARLIER THAN USUAL time of 19:30. This will be a Social Dance (as the 2nd half of our regular classes is), all dances will be walked and called and the programme is intended to be accessible to beginners. Tickets are 7 pounds, 3 pounds for students. The programme can be found here if you want to consult it in advance (you don't need to).
Regular classes will resume at the start of Lent term; 8-10pm on Mondays.
Classes will begin with a half hour of ceilidh dancing to warm up, followed by half an hour of teaching of steps and figures and then one hour of social dancing using the things we have learned.
Beginners are always welcome and there is no need to bring a partner or to have special shoes, wear something you are comfortable moving about in. All dances will be fully walked and called and anything that anyone indicates they don't understand will be explained.
Wednesday Class is 8pm-10pm
