They will run from 2.00pm to 5.00pm.

Cost: £5.00 or £2.50 for those in full-time education.

Aimed at good intermediate to advanced dancers, the workshops will look at dances or figures which are less common or a little more challenging. The workshops will be fast-paced and therefore a good knowledge of basic formations will be needed. Although the focus will be mainly on teaching dances and figures, there will be some technique covered along the way.

The June workshop will include some of the dances for Leeds White Rose Festival.

Further details are available from Peter Avery ( or Deb Lees (

BRANCH CLASS (for intermediate and experienced dancers)

Thursday nights during term time. (Restarts 14th September 2017)

The Branch Class takes place at 7.15pm on Thursdays at Westfield School, Elmfield Road, Gosforth.  Map

The first part of the class aims to develop all aspects of dancing technique, including phrasing, posture, use of hands and accuracy of footwork.  The second half focuses more on figures or dances which may be more complex or less frequently danced.  The social element of dancing runs throughout the class and there is always lots of laughter!

Dancers who are familiar with all basic figures and are keen to develop their dancing skills further are very welcome.  There is the option to attend the first part only or the full evening.

The teacher is Deb Lees and the music is provided by pianists Patricia Cass and Gillian Stewart (unless other music is needed in practising for display).
