Turkish Delight at the Dance Lessons

The Tea and Dance Lessons in the Court House on 3rd September had some unusual guests trying ballroom dancing for the first time.

A Warwick resident who came from Turkey two years ago to work as an engineer at JLR had invited four of her relatives and friends to spend a fortnight in Warwickshire – to experience some English culture. So after visits to Stratford and Warwick Castle, they all came to find out about our love of ballroom dancing.

Under the guidance of Grethe, a professional teacher from Majestic Dance, all the guests learned the basic steps of the foxtrot, the cha-cha, the waltz, and then let their hair down a little with a jive. 

They enjoyed the traditional tea and cake in the interval, and clearly had a wonderful afternoon. Here are a few pictures:

The Tea and Dance Lessons in the ballroom happen on the first Tuesday of each month from 2pm to 4pm in the Jury Street Court House, and cost just £2.50 to include the refreshments.

There’s no need to book, and as the visitors from Turkey proved, no experience is required. Just take to the floor and enjoy the music and the company.
