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. 

2019 - Autumn season runs from 4th September to 11th December.

2020 - Spring season runs from 8th January to 13th May (AGM 22nd April 2020, at 7.45 pm, followed by dancing).  

We have special events as well: we have the following dances to enjoy this season:

  • Saturday 14 December 2019 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 always enjoyable music of George Meikle. Please note venue change. (Ticket price £15). 
  • Saturday 1 February 2020 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. (Ticket price £12). Programme alongside on the right.
  • Our Summer Dance is on Saturday 13 June 2020 at Guilden Sutton Village Hall when we will again dance to George Meikle's music. Ticket price £12.
