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 Joan or 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.
