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. 

THE FOLLOWING DATES ARE PROVISIONAL:

2020 - Autumn season from 9th September to 9th December.

2021 - Spring season from 6th January to 12th May (AGM 21st April 2021, at 7.45 pm, followed by dancing).

IN VIEW OF THE CURRENT SITUATION AND IN ACCORDANCE WITH GOVERNMENT GUIDELINES, CHESTER CALLY WILL NOT BE MEETING AGAIN ON A WEDNESDAY EVENING UNTIL 9 SEPTEMBER 2020 AT CALDY VALLEY CHURCH AND CENTRE.
