 Line Dancing Classes 


The nights are getting shorter and now that Strictly Come Dancing is starting back on TV that means its only 16 weeks to Christmas. Do you fancy learning new dance routines for the office party or even just for a bit of exercise for that party dress, then come along to my Line Dancing class. It is suitable for all ages and for absolute beginners so don’t worry if you have never done it before. I have two classes so you can choose what day suits you or you can go to both. I promise you, you will really have a laugh and meet some great people. We are all there for the same reason to have a bit of fun and dance the Winter blues away.
My classes resumed Saturday September 5th 10:00 to 11:30am and Thursday September 10th 8:00 til 9:30pm. The class is only €5 per person.

I hope you can join us
