Club caller evening with Navigation Band
Expect to laugh a lot, get it wrong a lot, and meet lots of friendly people. Wear loose fitting clothes and expect to get warm because it is as energetic as you are! Wear flat, comfortable shoes which have a slippy sole if possible. Anyone new to social dancing is encouraged to arrive promptly so that we can form a welcome set to help guide you through the steps. You don't need to bring a partner, as you will be swapping (dance) partners as part of the dance, but partners are welcome too! The first dance evening is FREE. The cost thereafter is just £4, which we hope is totally affordable to all. We are keen to make this club as all-inclusive and welcoming as we can. We have access for wheelchair users too. This is a special evening and a chance for anyone to have a go at calling the dances. There will be a lot of variety of dances, and callers he this as a chance to call new dances. Expect a new live band each week, with a different caller who will be calling different dances. We are very fortunate to have internationally sought callers such as Geoff Cubitt and Lynne Render as regulars. For the Folk music sessions, bring any accoustic folk-friendly instruments and voices, and some money for drinks.

What we're about

We'd love you to join us for a few dances on Monday evenings. We start at 7.30pm then have a break of tea/coffee and biscuits half way through, ending at 10pm when quite a few of us go over to the pub afterwards for a natter.
No partner is needed, just come along and give it a try. Wear flat, comfortable shoes. We would encourage anyone new to this to arrive promptly so that we can welcome you and form a newcomers welcome set.
We are an all-inclusive, all-age, all-ability friendly and welcoming group of dancers who have fun and keep fit through a variety of English, Playford, Scottish and American Contra dancing.
Every week we have a different live band and caller and are very fortunate to count Geoff Cubitt and Lynne Render amongst our regular callers. The cost is just £4 and we invite you to come and try your first evening on us, free of charge.
