**URGENT NOTICE** To all those who were planning to attend the tea party today it has been moved!!! We are now in D/L/028, not the Roger Kirk (same time tho, 2-5pm) Apologies for the switch, it was nothing to do with us xox

Strictly social!

We hope you all enjoyed the lesson again on Tuesday, was great to see both so many new and returning faces and seeing people making some real progress with their dancing. There will be another opportunity on Saturday for you to get to grips with the routines or learn some new ones if you missed the lesson on Tuesday. The format will be the same as last Saturday (see the lessons page for the general format) and we hope to see a great turnout again this week.

We also have our first Strictly Come Dancing social this Saturday! (Saturday 27th October Week 3) It will be starting as 18:00 in Alcuin JCR and will be providing some refreshments. For those of you who aren't avid fans, Strictly is a TV show in which various celebrities are paired with a professional dancer and master a range of ballroom and latin dances, all done in a sea of glitter, fancy dresses and terrible jokes. We will also probably be ordering pizza during the evening but feel free to bring along any snacks if you wish.
