For those of you who are coming along to Cairns Road Baptist Church on Tuesdays please note that the church boiler has broken down and will not be fixed for week or two!!

Please wear some warm clothes, hats, gloves etc as I am sure it will be bit cold as you enter the hall but once we get going it will be fine!

We have Four New Beginners Latin and Ballroom classes starting in January 2018. You can join the classes on:

  • No need to book

    Really, just show up at the venue on the day, the more the merrier, our halls are big enough for all comers.

  • No experience needed

    If you have not danced before these are the classes for you, we expect everyone to be a complete beginner.

  • No partner needed

    Come with a partner, with friends or on your own as there are always people to dance with.

  • Pay as you go

    Classes are £7 (£6.50 Concessions) per person per class. Pay for each class as you arrive. Only pay for the classes you attend.

Strictly 2011 Series 9 – Week 5 – Halloween

When Juddge Lulu was ickle I was forced to pay a three figure sum to help finance a Halloween party. As you can tell I didn’t resent it. Maybe this was the day that my apathy for this imposed celebration began? I don’t do subjugation well. However, even with this deep-rooted belief the weekend was...

Practice Sessions Still Running

The practice sessions, hosted by Toby and Michal, will continue every Tuesday and Thursday at the Elmgrove Centre 8 – 10pm, so there’s no need to stop dancing during this temporary break in the term. For those of you who have not been before, the entrance to the main hall of the Elmgrove Centre is...

Strictly 2011 Series 9 – Week 4

It has been an eventful week, a week dominated by change, upsets and challenges. Mike Tindall’s gran is on her farewell tour of Australia. Manchester City rolled over their more famous neighbours last Sunday netting six times. Are the reds now destined for relative obscurity? France stood up to the plate in the Rugby World...

Strictly 2011 Series 9 – Week 3

I’m sure that most of you will have heard of the passing this week of Minnie Driver’s great aunt, Betty, fondly remembered for her days in the West End, the small and big screen, and for her fictitious hot pot at The Rovers Return. Betty Turpin was just 91. As life expectancy extends further in...

Strictly 2011 Series 9 – Week 2

I’m not sure that many folk reading this missive will remember the good old days, those quondam days when your fun was playing out till it got dark, summer holidays that went on forever, grass cuttings that reminded you of Wimbledon and village crickit, when you went to bed exhausted and listened to a tranny...

Strictly 2011 Series 9 – Week 1

We were cruising around Lake Geneva in August. The Alps were alpine, high and mighty, the peaks dusted in snow, nice top, the water still, deep, blue, the air warm, temperate, our bodies recovering from Lord Ted’s 50th the night before. Ice creams were three Swiss Euros, lagers four; we were grateful that grandma got...

Progress Through Practice

Classes are great and dances are fun, but to really get the most out of dancing I personally need something in between. In a class you are told what to do and concentrate on only a few steps at a time. At a dance you want to enjoy yourself so you tend to only do...

Anticipating Strictly Come Dancing 2011

Once again it’s that time of year and the start of the ninth series of Strictly Come Dancing is imminent. We’re eagerly awaiting the full line-up of celebrities who are getting ready to strut their stuff on the dance floor. Rumours abound but it looks as if there will be some well known faces to...

Summer Term 2011 Dates

The days are drawing out nicely, clocks have sprung forward and even the weather was very nice for nearly a week (hopefully we will get more nice weather over the bank holidays). We can now look forward to the start of the new term with classes starting on 2nd May 2011. We have one new...
