Saturday’s are dance days!

(These are currently held the second Saturday of each month in Ladock Community Hall (see calendar for dates)

  • 10am – 11.30am Open Members Dance session
    Suitable for all ages and levels. A fun dance session with a mix of easy to follow dance routines as well as some routines which are broken down. Everyone is free to join in.
  • 11.45am-1.15pm Leaders Session
    This is the next progression if a young person wants to enhance their dance skills and take on some leadership. The Leaders will be trained to eventually run the Open Dance Session.

The main thing needed for this class is not ability but enthusiasm and passion about leadership and dance.
