More Tea Dances than I had realised

By | May 14th, 2018|Articles, Tea Dances|

It seems that I under-estimated the coverage of Tea Dances A few weeks back, prompted by a visit to Ceroc Beds & Bucks Te Amo, I wrote an article about the growing popularity of Sunday afternoon Tea Dances.  In my article I included a few venues I'd found on UK Jive and Facebook.  It seems [...]

My first ever Tea Dance At the beginning of April I got an opportunity to go to my first ever Tea Dance.  My partner Jo had been asked to demo for Ashley Davis at a Role Reversal class, that ran along side a Smooth Moves class run by Joe Collins (see review links below).  Both classes [...]

Let's not take these vibrant Ceroc Weekenders for granted In February, as I entered The Thunderball Room on the Friday Night, just after ten o'clock, there was a real buzz about the place.  DJ Tim Sant already had a packed dance floor rockin', and it would stay like this until the early hours.  As I looked [...]
