We teach two classes each week, Tuesday nights at the Victoria Hall (Town Hall) in Crewkerne, and at the Edgar Hall in Somerton every Thursday night, both beginning at 7.45 PM with the doors usually opening at 7.30 PM. Coming in early gives you a chance to change your shoes, catch up with friends or, just have a little practice before we start the beginner lesson.
Beginner Lesson: This usually consists of four easy to learn moves, put together in a way to remember the moves and help you dance to most types of music. We have a short break, where we play tunes to practice your moves. Each week we tend to drop two moves and replace with two new ones. We feel that people learn more by repetition rather than doing different moves each week.
Intermediate moves: these are also made up of three or four more challenging moves. Again the emphasis is about having fun whilst learning something new. We bring at least one move from the previous week to aid learning.
After the lesson: We play a variety of music till 10pm, this helps people to practise their moves and have a fun evening out. We have the most up-to-date music including chart hits, and a range of music covering all eras. Dancers sometimes request their favourite tracks, after all It’s your night out, we just want to make it special! Every week we provide a handout with the names of the moves from the night, this is so you can see what you’ve done, and use for future reference.
The Edgar Hall. It has an amazing wooden dance floor, with a capacity of over 140 people dancing. There are lots of seats surrounding the dance floor, plus plenty of seating in the bar area, which is fully licensed. There’s a really large free car park. We have air-conditioning and fans at all our events held here.
Barrington Village Hall. A beautiful venue in the lovely village of Barrington. A large and sprung, wooden dance floor, with a stage and air conditioning. It’s an intimate venue that many people prefer to the larger less personal venues. There is free parking all around the hall area.
Norton village hall has a fabulous wooden dance floor and plenty of room for freestyle dances. It has it’s own music system, with a loop for people who are hard of hearing. There is an anti room where we serve refreshments and a large kitchen. In the summer there is a large decking area where you can sit and relax or just take in the scenery. Lots of free parking right outside of the hall.
Davis Hall at West Camel. A gem of a venue, situated off the A303 between Sparkford and the Podimore Roundabout. Has a very large sprung mapel dance floor, a large stage, independent lighting and it’s own dance floor. It has an anti room for refreshments and plenty of free parking. This venue is well worth a visit.
