We are not closing parks at this stage as we are mindful of the health and well-being benefits of being outside. However, you must rigidly observe the Government and NHS advice on social distancing such as keeping 2 metres away from other people. Play areas, tennis courts and outdoor gyms should not be used at this time. People who need to stay at home and self-isolate must do so. If the guidance is not followed this position on parks and open spaces will be reviewed.

A friendly social class for beginners to learn Ballroom and Latin.

We learn the basics of each dance in a fun way for 3 weeks at a time, alternating between all the "Strictly" ballroom and latin dances such as chacha, waltz, jive, quickstep, rumba, social foxtrott, samba, and tango.

You don't have to have a partner to come along, but if you do have a partner you will be able to stay dancing together.
