Social Dances

 

Our weekly social dances are suitable for everyone. From beginner to advanced there's a dance for you on Friday nights! You don't need any dancing experience, you don't need to bring a partner, and you don't need any specialised equipment.

Children are welcome, but persons under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

How Does it Work?

The social has approximately 2 and 1/2 hours of dancing divided into two sections with a light supper in between. Each week, before supper, we play a different program of dances and dance everything twice; to different music of course. We finish the pre-supper program with a bracket of progressive dances to really work up an appetite; and then, we feast!

During the break you can request a dance for the post-supper program, and after supper we dance the night away with the dances you've requested. We only play one of each after supper, so we can get through as many as we can before hanging up the shoes for the evening.
