Our thoughts on the Northern Butlins winning inventive dances are shown below. We have also uploaded a couple of top tips for the Turquoise Tango as some of our dancers found some of the steps new/challenging. The OUTSIDE SWIVEL and the OPEN BACK PROMENADE TO UNTWIST.
Our fabulous Friday morning group are doing so well with the samba, we've added some more - GOLD SAMBA SNIPPET PART 2!
Those of you attending vintage afternoon tea dances or 40s/GI dances may well find yourselves doing the LAMBETH WALK OI! We found a few different versions, but have gone with the oldest script we could find (1937). Have a look at our walkthrough & version to music further down this page.

SEQUENCE BEGINNERS LOOK HERE!!! We have created a playlist of the easier, popular sequence dances to get you started. Click here for a playlist of 10 sequence dances in a variety of rhythms that are likely to played at most dances. It starts with the Sweetheart Waltz (not as popular as some of the others, but a good introduction to Waltz) and runs through Square Tango, Rumba One, Melody Foxtrot and many others to the Saunter Together. Once you have mastered these, the world is your oyster!!
We are now leading/teaching at the MONDAY AFTERNOON MODERN SEQUENCE DANCE at BIDDULPH TOWN HALL. If you are local and would like to join us, then we'd love to see you between 1.30 and 3.30pm.
Thank you to everyone who feeds back to us about their dancing, the website, current issues etc we always love hearing from you. Keep the requests coming, we always make a note of them and will try to fit them in if we can. For those of you more technically minded, we
have a facebook page (access it from the symbol) that we will use to keep you up to date from competitions, events etc.
