Coronavirus: To all our dear friends ....  We remain closed at the present time, but are looking to reopen with some private lessons from 25th July. We are waiting for the full details regarding reopening from the government and then our insurers and those of the hall. Please keep checking here for updates. Stay safe and well, and we hope very much to be able to return to a full schedule after the summer. We miss you all very much.


  • Our internet-based online lesson service using video links is working well. We can tailor this to suit all your needs - still the only option for now!

  • Tuesday 14th July - next Small Room Dancing. Thanks very much to those of you who have paid the July fees (£15 per person).


All classes are currently suspended, but we have an online facility for class attendees - see notes and the Online Lessons Page

Medal Test:

Our next ISTD medal test will be scheduled for later in the year.
