Weekly dancing Thursday evenings at the hall. Social dance 7:30 to about 9:30 p.m.

The evening sports a brief break for tea & socialising. We typically end with a waltz about 9:30 p.m.

Sunday Advanced - NOW 1000 - 1200 (was 2 - 4 p.m.)
These sessions are for dancers who feel comfortable with English dance figures, such as double figure eights and many forms of heys.
It is also intended for those who learn quickly and independently.

Sometimes a public dance workshop or session of instruction is available on another day
