DANCING FOR CHARITY is focused on FUN!  providing an entertaining evening of modern jive  (and sometimes other styles of dance).
The organisers of this social evening make no profit whatsoever from the money raised.      

DANCING FOR CHARITY is a group of like minded people devoted to raising funds for local charities, while having a fun sociable time.
 
Come along, whether you are a couple, single or in a  group, you will be made truly welcome.  The age range is  20 ish to ??
(sorry~ no under 18's -social club rules)  and what we all have in common is a love of dancing and a need to have fun! 
Check out the smiling faces, see the effect dancing has!  ....... 

Check out our slideshow of just some of the events here.
 
Our DJ understands how important the music is to get us all on the floor. We will play a great range and take suggestions from members too. In a relaxed and friendly atmosphere beginners can learn to jive in just six weeks.
 
We have several experienced dancers who will lead you into beginner  moves, teaching just a little at a time. We start the evening at 8pm with a class , individual help for beginners is available on request. 
 
However,  nearly everyone will join the class to learn a new move or two or just to warm up and break the ice, the moves are beginner and intermediate combined, and everyone has fun learning together. Then it's FREESTYLE all night until 11pm. Occasionally we will bring in a guest teacher to introduce some more advanced moves, tailored to suit the needs of our members. 
 
Our venues are airy, dimly lit, with a great dancefloors. The bar prices are very reasonable and entry is only £4.
