Dance In Line-Latin/Ballroom
|Judith Bolton||07870 500300 email@example.com|
GREAT NEWS! October 2020.
The group is starting again. Members can dance on Mondays at 9.30 am or Wednesdays at 9.30am or 11.15am in St Arvans hall.
Numbers are limited so, if you want to join us, please get in touch first by contacting Liz Lewis, mailto elizabeth.lewis9 @btinternet.com
If you are interested in trying some Latin and Ballroom dancing without a partner, do join us. Members of all abilities (including those who think they have never danced before!) can get so much enjoyment from a morning of dancing. The group started at the beginning of May 2018 and has been really successful. A large group got going straight away and there have been several new members joining since. There are now 2 classes on Wednesdays and one on Mondays but there is scope for a second on Monday if numbers require. St. Arvans Memorial Hall is the venue where procedures and equipment have been put in place to ensure the safest environment possible for dancing.
After her degree, Judith trained as a teacher at Manchester Polytechnic, specializing in teaching lipreading to adults who have acquired deafness. It is a very different world to dance. However, almost a lifetime of different dance training/experiences and honed communication skills seem to be a good combination for guiding this group. The wonderful surprise has been the quick rate at which everyone has learnt different dance genres. Our dance list now includes Waltz, Strolls, Cha Cha's, Quickstep and Mambo. We even have a Paso Doble and the latest....an Argentine Tango!
Over and over again, we are being told how good dancing is for one’s social life, joints, balance, general fitness and feeling of well-being. In the present situation, how good it is to be with a few friends, listen to a variety of music and abandon the world outside for a while as you dance the time away.
Strictly Come Dancing is going to be different this year as social distancing defines the dance style. Maybe we will be seeing the equivalent of Latin and Ballroom dancing on our screens!
