Saturday Evening Dances


Saturday Dances - Ashford:

No partner or experience needed!

The caller teaches each dance and then calls the moves while you are dancing, so you don't even have to remember the sequence. These dances are designed for people with two left feet. Bring your friends or come alone. Everyone dances with everyone and has great fun!

Great music, great calling, great dances: what more do you want?

Hothfield Village Hall, Park Drive, Hothfield, Ashford TN26 1EQ
