The Tea Dance (Fly Right Dance Company)

By | Published on Saturday 27 August 2011

Set in a gloriously incongruous corner of the Palm Court, this exceedingly gentle introduction will delight and reassure even the most inexperienced dancer, though there is little opportunity for the more ambitious to challenge themselves. Whilst coming with a partner is advisable, a trio of girls were well accommodated as the dances were taught gradually from scratch, with professionals on hand if we required (or desired!) a more able partner. Indeed, what really shines through is the teachers’ hospitality and their knowledge of the history of dance and commitment to sharing their enthusiasm. During the break, they pour cocktails, pass round canapés and compliment us on our skills, and for a moment we are transported to a more genteel era.

Pleasance Dome, 6 – 29 Aug (not 15, 22), 6.30pm (7.30pm), £7.00, fpp178.
