SPECIAL EVENTS:
 

CHARITY DANCES ETC:

A number of Charity Dances take place during the year, some are specific charity events
and other raise money for a charity by way of raffles etc. Contact us for more information.
There is also our  PINK PIG RACING  Please ask for details and dates.
 

Ballroom Dance Classes:

The regular Thursday evening Dance continue to attract both experienced as well as new dancers. As always, there is

not a class on Thursday 24th March (Easter Week) but we are back again on 31st March.

Of course, these classes are ideal for those who already dance and want to expand their knowledge but, more importantly,
they are ideal for those who do not dance and need to learn their first steps.

Why not come along and join in.

Call Dennis on 01803 299791 for more information and see the Music for Dancing page of this web site.

 

Dancing in Rattery:

Last night (Friday 19th March), Olympeas and I were dancing at Rattery Village Hall and we noted that, on Friday 1st April

John Westlake is appearing at the South Brent Carnival Dance, 7:45 to 11:45. Space is limited so you need to arrange your

tickets from Doreen on 01364 73650.


Sid & Ross GATELEY

As always their Tuesday, bi-weekly dances continue at the Livermead House Hotel in Torquay as well as many

other venues and Dancing Breaks in the South West. For more information contact Sid & Ross on 01803 844332

 

 

JIM's CANDLELIGHT DANCING

The new Plymouth dance venue at The Woolwell Centre in Darklake Lane. Woolwell.

Plymouth. PL6 7TR on alternate Fridays, is proving more and more popular.

It was sad to loose the Plymouth City College as a venue after 19 years but this was another venue that was having extensive
alterations and there would not be any ballroom to use.
 
We look forward to seeing you at Woolwell as well as at theCorn Exchange in Exeter. For more information contact Jim on:
01626 335123
