Question — What can you do to keep warm, make new friends, exercise and dance when the nights are drawing in?
Answer — You can start line dancing at a brand-new class for beginners about to start at the Edward Dunn Memorial Hall in Maltby.
Whilst it is not exactly Strictly Come Dancing, there are many people out there who never thought that they could or would become line dancers. Dave Birkinshaw, who is a qualified line dance instructor, first saw line dancing demonstrated one Bank Holiday Monday 21 years ago and was immediately a fan!
Line dancing is often classed as exercise to music — but is much more fun than that — and classes are attended by dancers of all ages. There is something for everybody.
A huge advantage of line dancing is that you don’t need a partner. All the dances are ‘performed’ in lines — therefore no partner is necessary. Dances take place to a wide range of music from country to pop and dances can be to waltzes, cha cha and rock and roll, etc.
Dave, who knows Maltby very well from the Grammar School days, has recently retired and is starting his first ever daytime line dancing class at the Edward Dunn Memorial Hall on Tickhill Road in Maltby. This new class will be for beginners and new starters from 1.30pm to 3.30pm on Thursdays starting on 9th November. Dave looks forward to welcoming you to a warm and friendly atmosphere. The first class will be free to encourage new dancers to give it a try.
The Edward Dunn Memorial Hall has a good dance floor. Dave will make everyone welcome on the 9th November and there is a break for free tea and biscuits. Parking is mainly on-street so leave plenty of time get to the hall for a 1.30pm start. Why not come along and have a go and ‘Keep On Dancing’? For more information call Dave on 07808 931534.
