Our initial thoughts on the recent ISDC winners are shown below. We'll be teaching the Black Onyx Tango next week.
Samba isn't always the most popular of rhythms and 16 bar sequences are over before you've blinked. So we have uploaded a samba snippet we are currently teaching for those of you who would like some choreography in this rhythm. CLICK HERE to have a look at it.
We shall be running a series of SUNDAY AFTERNOON TEA DANCES at Alsager Civic Hall during 2015 (Cheshire/Staffordshire border), during which you will get a sequence class, an afternoon of 50/50 dancing and a scrummy afternoon tea. Tickets £10 per person and must be bought in advance. First dance is booked for Sunday February 15th 2015.
Bookings for our NOVEMBER LAKE DISTRICT DANCE/WALKING BREAK are going very well and there are only a few rooms now left. Please get your deposits in as soon as possible to secure your place. Joining letters will be sent out in the next few weeks which will include details of the dances to be covered.

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.
