We meet on Wednesdays at 7:30 pm until about 9.45pm 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 7:30pm to around 8.30pm the session is led by Christine we may learn and practice basic steps and 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. 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 together with a good sense of humour!
  • From 8.40pm '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 throughout the evening according to difficulty.
  • We also hope to hold our special dances as usual and list the dates below:
  • Our Summer Dance on 7 June was really enjoyable. We had a marvellous evening dancing to the music of Ian Slater.
  • Saturday 9 December 2023 is our 'open to all' Christmas Dance at Guilden Sutton Village Hall which we have combined with our President's Night. Dancing will be to the music of Andrew Lyon. Ticket price £15 (including cold supper). Please note change of venue. See opposite for programme.
  • We will be holding our next Summer Dance on Saturday 8 June 2024 when we dance to the music of Andrew Lyon at Guilden Sutton Village Hall.
  • Chester Cally is very sorry to announce that it will no longer be holding a Burns Night dance.
