Our Programme

Our weekly programme of dances is devised by our team of m/cs.
We try to make the evening interesting with dances ranging from old favourites to some new or less familiar dances.
We would welcome suggestions for dances to include in our programmes to give them more pizzazz or just because you like the dance.
Details of the programmes for the next few weeks are here.
