Events

We meet on Wednesdays at 7:45 pm until about 10pm at the Caldy Valley Centre, Caldy Valley Road, Chester CH3 5PR - that's by the Sainsbury's roundabout in Great Boughton.  Plenty of free parking at the venue.

Wednesday evening sessions are in two parts:

  • From 7:45pm to around 8.50pm the session is led by Christine and we learn and practice the basic steps and learn new (to us) dances.  Each dance in this part of the evening has a full 'walk-through' so it's very good for beginners and improvers - and the more experienced will help the less experienced. Because of this, all dances in this session are graded with one star.  This is followed by a short comfort break and any announcements (of dances, etc).
  • Please note, no refreshments are provided and you are advised to bring water with you.
  • From 9pm 'til we run out of steam, we have an hour of social dancing; dances are recapped and walked through, if needed. This part of the evening is a bit more challenging, and not all dances may be suitable for beginners. We are now grading dances according to difficulty to help with this part of the evening. 

We are hoping to recommence dancing on Wednesday 15 September 2021.  We also hope to hold our special dances as usual and list the dates below:

  • Saturday 11 December 2021 is our 'open to all' Christmas Dance at St Columba's Church Hall, Newton, Chester CH2 1SA which we have combined with our President's Night. Dancing will be to the always enjoyable music of George Meikle. Ticket price £12 (including cold supper). The programme is listed opposite.
  • Saturday  5 February 2022 is our 'open to all' Burns' Night Supper and dance at St. Columba's Church Hall, Newton, Chester CH2 1SA dancing to George Meikle's excellent playing.  We have decided to cancel our Burns Night for 2022 but hope to hold it once again in 2023.
  • Our Summer Dance is on Saturday 11 June 2022 at Guilden Sutton Village Hall when we will again dance to George Meikle's music. Ticket price £tba (including supper).
