It was easy and gentle rather than strictly come dancing in the Court House ballroom on 12th June, and the session was very much enjoyed by those who turned up for the monthly Tea and Dance Lessons.
Professional dance teacher Chris coached everyone through the steps of the foxtrot and other ballroom classics, and there were plenty of laughs along the way, before tea and cake in the interval provided by Cllr Dorothy Da Cruz and Sue Rigby from Unlocking Warwick.
These enjoyable sessions take place in the lovely Regency ballroom in the Jury Street Court House between 2pm and 4pm on the second Tuesday of every month. Ballroom dancing is very good for balance, posture and keeping you flexible, as well as being great fun.
You don’t need any experience and you don’t have to come with a partner. Just link up with someone else and take to the floor. The sessions cost only £2.50. There’s no need to book. Just turn up and dance. There’s plenty of time to sit and talk between the sessions.
The next event at the Court House will be the monthly social gathering ‘In the Ballroom’ on Thursday 14th June at 2pm. There will be a talk about the celebrated Warwickshire Yeomanry, the cavalry regiment commemorated in the fascinating museum in the basement of the building, and there will be a quiz and some tea and fine cake, with time to chat and make new friends.
The Tea and Dance Lessons in the ballroom are organised by Warwick Town Council together with Unlocking Warwick, the Big Lottery Awards for All, and the King Henry VIII Endowed Trust.
