Those Warwick residents who braved thunder, lightening and torrential downpours to attend the Tea and Dance Lessons in the ballroom on October 1st enjoyed some gentle waltzes and foxtrots before finishing with a tango flourish.
They all clearly enjoyed the rhythmic exercise as they tried to master the steps of the ballroom classics under the guidance of Chris, the professional dance teacher. And during the interval, there was tea, coffee and a selection of cakes, served by volunteers Sue and Liz, with plenty of time for the dancers to to sit down and have a chat.
The Tea and Dance Lessons organised by Unlocking Warwick for the Town Council happen on the first Tuesday of each month in the elegant Regency ballroom in the Jury Street Court House.
There’s no need to book and no experience is necessary. The sessions run from 2pm to 4pm and cost just £2.50 including the refreshments. So if you know of someone who would particularly appreciate this enjoyable way of staying supple and balanced while learning a new social skill, suggest they come along to the next session on the afternoon of Guy Fawkes Night, Tuesday November 5th.
