What we're about

Let's get together for Social Dancing in and around the Belfast area.

We are a group of dance teachers and social dance hosts actively promoting a mix of many different genres of social dance. Each host will provide details of their own regular social dance event that they actively run / promote on a regular basis under their own dance school banner.

Our aim is to get people up and social dancing, supporting all our local teachers. If you're a social dancer, social dance teacher or social dance organiser in and around Belfast / County Antrim / County Down etc and you would like to showcase your style and class at our events then get in touch.

Individual Meetups advertised at each teacher's regular social dance event will incur their own entry charge, as advertised.

The Group is managed by Adele Marsh, Creative Director and Principal Teacher of Live to Dance EU based in Larne, Carrickfergus, Greenisland and Belfast.

Social Dance Party with Adele

St John's Masonic Club

Social Dance Parties with Adele every 3rd Friday of the month in Larne in 2019 Come and join Adele for a fun packed evening of social dancing. We’ll start the evening with a fun group lesson where everyone can join in. Then we’ll be playing a mixture of music styles to cover all the genres of dancing you’ve been learning with Adele. There will be Salsa, Bachata, Bachatango, Kizomba, Cha Cha, Jive, Rumba, with Waltz, Quickstep, Foxtrot & Tango. Since there will be plenty of modern tracks played, if you bring a friend that hasn’t been to a dance class yet, they can still get up and have a boogie. We’ll keep the energy alive throughout the evening with our party ‘line ups’ where everyone can join in and copy Adele without a partner… a bit like line dancing but without the routines… you just get up and follow and hope for the best! It’s always a fun, friendly & relaxed atmosphere at a party with Adele and everyone can enjoy themselves, even if you’ve never been to a dance class before. Fun Class starts 7.45pm, Social Dancing from 8.30pm to 11pm £7 per person, pay on the door. Why not come and give it a try? The bar will be open throughout.
