Classes are currently suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We hope to resume activities in Autumn 2021 and will advise members and friends of the Branch via the website, eUpdate and social media as soon as we are able to restart. We look forward to dancing with you as soon as possible.


Wednesdays from 7.00 – 9.00 pm during term time.

The first 5 weeks of the Autumn term will have a general Return to Dancing Class aimed at giving a gentle return to dancing for dancers of all levels and taught by Pat Davoll.

An introduction to basic steps and formations for new dancers while supporting improvers to develop their technique and general dancing skills.

You don’t need any special clothes or shoes to begin with, just wear something comfortable and soft, flat, light shoes and you don’t have to bring a partner either!


Teacher: Davinia Miln                 
Musicians:  TBC

NEW STARTERS & RETURNERS: This class is for regular attenders, usually starting in September. During the year, new starters and returners may attend one class free, where they will be able to try out one or two dances, then watch the rest of the session. They will then be asked to pay for a block of five classes, to show their intention to attend regularly.
