It’s a New Year!

Happy New Year to you all!!!
It’s time to Kick off the Year & Jump into Dance Classes!
Let’s blow up those skirts and dust off those shoes!
Are we ready to RocknRoll? Get into the Swing of it Now!
Check below for our new courses and start dates.  Looking forward to meeting new people in our Beginner Courses and cant wait to see the return of our intermediate/advanced students and followers!  We’ve missed you!

There are a couple of changes and additions to our courses and venues. For those at Woodcroft please note the venue caught fire on 8th January and is in disrepair with the roof caved in and the building gutted. We are looking at a venue in the vicinity.  The Council and Caretaker have been in contact and have a substitute venue for us for which we are thankful.
Woodcroft was home to Blue Suede Shoes for over 20 years.  We were the first hirer and the longest standing hirer at this venue. It has saddened very many of us, including staff and students past and present. I was overwhelmed by the phone calls, messages and emails from so many.  Wonderful memories for myself and Justin and so many of our young adults who began their journeys at Woodcroft.
We are ready to start new memories in a new fresh year at a new venue.
