La Di Dance

We were very lucky to receive a grant from The Lottery Community Fund - Awards For All to start up a new project called ‘La Di Dance’ which we will be running over the next 12 months. 

La Di Dance will run in blocks of 6 weeks, they will run weekly on a Tuesday 12-2pm at King Alfred on the dates below. The cost is £2 per lesson payable as £12 in advance per block. 

Each block will be different! Space is limited. 

Block 1 - Dance with Nicole! Swing, Cha Cha Cha and Charleston! 

Tuesday 10th October to Tuesday 14th November 12-2pm

You will know Nicole as one half of our La Di Da Dance Duo. She has always loved music and dance, from watching the Hollywood musicals as a child to trying out different dance styles as an adult. She has many years of Salsa, Ballroom and Latin dance experience and has taught beginner dance workshops to adults and children.

With a background in teaching and now working as a Life Coach and trainer, Nicole supports people to develop confidence and positive well being. She believes that dancing is a wonderful way to do this and loves bringing people together to learn, have fun and share her passion.

No partner necessary!
