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 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.
  • 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 throughout the evening according to difficulty.
  • We also hope to hold our special dances as usual and list the dates below:
  • 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 £12 (including supper). See opposite for programme.
     
  • Saturday 10 December 2022 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 music of George Meikle. Ticket price £15 (including cold supper). 

 

  • Chester Cally is very sorry to announce that it will no longer be holding a Burns Night dance.
