New Years’ Eve

Sunday night we will celebrate together  the end of 2017!  Theme for those who wish to have a bit of fun is Movies.  Either come as a movie star….. looking forward to at least one Clark Gable…. or come as a movie title….Ghostbusters would be fun!

We start at 8pm and finish around 1am to see in the new year.

Christmas and New Year Dates

Hi Everyone,  Just to let you know about the dates etc for the coming Christmas season….

Last lesson night is 13/12/17 but there is dancing on the following Wednesday 20th December  – just no lesson.

Last Saturday night will be 23rd December for the Christmas dance – THEN New Years Eve is on again on 31st December.  Theme for that night is the Movies –  Come as a movie star or as a movie title or as anything associated with the movies.  We will be dancing to songs from the movies and hopefully the whole program will be movie music – some from long ago – some more recent!

Dancing then resumes after New Years Eve on Wednesday 3rd January and Saturday 6th January until next Christmas!!!

Looking forward to seeing you over the Christmas New Year period. If you are busy, I wish you a safe and happy time with your family over this important time.  I thank you for your attendance and patronage over the last year.
