When we meet1st Tuesday of the month 10 - 11.30
and 3rd Tuesday of the month 13.30 - 15.00
Where we meetUnited Reformed Church, Chapel Road, Hounslow

A very friendly group, our aim is to enjoy not-too-strenuous movement, while enjoying the wonderful sounds of Balkan music. We are very welcoming to any newcomer with the dances being revised and practised regularly.

During the pandemic, we have continued to meet every Monday on Zoom at 3pm weekly since mid-April 2020. For anyone who doesn’t use Zoom, connection can be made via Skype at the same time. We spend a very pleasant hour dancing to our favourite music from the Balkans and a little beyond (Armenia for example). It is lovely to see our members, who have been joined by 3 members of the Feltham Balkan Dance Club. The number of U3A members who are joining us is increasing, which is great.

We have begun to add some dances to our repertoire, ones that can be taught over Zoom or Skype.

None of the dances we do require a partner and the group has a shared Google drive with music to enjoy. Links to YouTube videos are sent, so people can refresh their memories about dances. In this way, anyone who would like to join us, is very welcome and with a little “homework” can join in or just sit back and watch others move around.

We hope to be able to meet in person from September, all being equal, and our venue is the United Reformed Church in Chapel Road, Hounslow – 1st Tuesday of the month from 10.00 to 11.30 and every 3rd Tuesday from 13.30 to 15.00. After our dance session, we migrate to a suitable café for tea, coffee and maybe a nibble or two.

If you would like any more information or to join us, please email the group coordinator with your contact details and Phil (Leader) will be in touch.
