We are now proud to announce that Beach Access North East has become a registered Charity - number 1172413. Trustees: Sue Rowley, Caroline Corfield and Lorna Moore. This organisation will be run entirely by volunteers and we would love to hear from anyone who is interested in supporting us in any way.

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 great dance floors. The bar prices are very reasonable and entry is only £5.
