The Format

As we are licensed premises, with the bar open in the evenings, everyone admitted after 8pm must be over 18, however, all age groups are well represented, from young adults to the mature young at heart, We have rockers from 18 to 80!! The evening starts with instruction and is followed by a Social practice dance, where you can make friends, have a drink and practice what you have been learning during the class. The teaching staff will be on hand to help out if you are having any difficulties.

What To Wear

Most members wear comfortable casual clothes. It helps if footwear is soft enough to be able to bend the foot at the toe joint. Slippery soles, high thin heels or sling backs should be avoided.

Rock'n'Roll

Casual wear is appropriate. Most members wear jeans & other comfortable clothes. As the evening progresses, the temperature rises, so layers are best - a T-shirt even in winter is usually enough.
