Class of 2015
Our last beginners sessions started in October 2015. We were delighted to welcome 7 new dancers who successfully completed learning the Mainstream programme. On the 29th July 2016, we held a graduation party, see photo, where six of the candidates successfully passed muster.
Congratulations to Sandra, Theresa, Mike, Julie, Michael and Heather (As well as
Carmen who also graduated, but was unable to be present on the 29th). We wish them
many years of dancing pleasure. Our photo shows them together with our caller -
