ArtBeat 2015 Dance Events

Dancing at ArtBeat 2015Once again, we will be offering great opportunities for people of all ages to get up, face the music, and dance. You could also be lucky enough to catch some inspiring performances.

We are enlisting the help of local dance enthusiasts and teachers to teach some easy steps, and also to showcase what they can do. We will be aiming to repeat the successful formats of last year which delivered friendly and fun learning sessions – and we are going one step further by offering  a dance night.

Tea Dance

An enjoyable trip down memory lane and a sociable afternoon will be hosted at South Lodge. Waltz, quickstep, and other old favourites on offer. A repeat of a successful event last year.


New for this year, a session where dance and fitness are combined. Local Zumba teacher Carol Askew is offering you a chance to come for a taster session with simple steps and easy moves to great music.

Jewish Circle and Folk Dancing

Back by popular demand, Leon Chariker will be leading another session. It’s fun, sociable and easy!

Nimisha Parma will start her session by showcasing her current students in performance and will then teach some traditional steps, moves and hand gestures.

Latin Dance Taster Classes

In response to requests for Latin dance, we have arranged some free taster lessons in Ceroc and Tango. These will be given by local expert dance teachers who will get you dancing in no time. An opportunity not to be missed, especially as you will be able to dance straight away at the Latin Dance night the following evening.


We are putting on a social dance night with both Latin and rock/jive (Ceroc) beats right on your doorstep at Cultura on Queens Rd. Beginners, enthusiasts and onlookers all welcome. Look out for more details in our programme and posters.
