This is for dancers seeking out a comprehensive list of tea dances In London.
We Are Here To Educate People on Tea Dance which Will Fast Become a Dying Art Form. What You Will Get is an idea of the venue, and type of guests who attend, so you can seek out and meet other dancers with whom you can relate.
When Does a Tea Dance Take Place ?
Most In the Afternoon From 2 pm Onwards But Could be Earlier or Later We Don't Mind If There are Evening Tea Dances too.
The Tea Dance will be in London and The Surrounding Counties Either on a Weekday or Weekend But most likely weekend as Some of you Work
Is There a Format for the Tea Dance ?
Yes There is a Format Usually First Waltz at Beginning or Last Waltz at the end with a Bus Stop in The middle after Tea Break but Rules can vary or be Broken. This is The Format with a Ballroom Tea Dance. Lots of Cake and some Times some alcohol depending on The Venue. Some Have a Sequence Element To Dance with some easy Sequence Dances and Others Not so Easy but one can learn them after a time. The Progressive Barn Dance is The Easiest of The Sequences To Do.
