Website - Info

We have been running our Ballroom Dance class since the Summber of 2018 when we finally managed to persuade Robb Singer to be our Instructor for the Tuesday Night classes.

We have established great links with 2 couples in the local area who run regular Tea Dances and/or Evening Dances so we will be promoting their events  - See Links page.

For those of us who need extra practice without the presure of a full dance floor we will be running “Dance Practice Session” - probably one a month dependant on the availability of our Hall and on dates that don't clash with the other established events…

Checkout the Events Page or the Calendar for forth coming Dances and any changes to classes etc.

Worthing Tea Dance


Robb has been concentrating on extended our Samba routine and demonstrating the correct technique - which is going to take a while to master!!!
Also working on the Viennese Waltz, easy at slow tempo but difficult to get right at speed...

March Practice Evening

14 couples, including couples from the beginners group, enjoyed a social get-together on Friday 22nd March. Practiced their new steps and basic routines to a range of music.

Robb introduced us all to a new sequence dance ( new to most of us ) the Melody Foxtrot, in just 30min the whole group danced it almost step perfect…. !

A delightful evening without the pressure of a formal dance floor...

Feb 26th - Samba!

Getting to grips with the Samba - this is going to take a few weeks!!!
