With restrictions easing and outdoor classes possible only since 10th May 2021, we seized the moment last weekend to hold our first ‘Dancing for Water’ outdoor workshops. The threat of thunderstorms and rain, did not deter anyone. The sun came out and you came to dance – distanced – by the seaside! It was good to see you! What a great time!

Thank you to all who came out – some cycling so, so far! Thank you also to all who joined online us on zoom to Dance for Water! and help me make a little film!

If you’d like to dance in Aid of Water – one first or last time, join me on 12th June at 3pm outdoors!

Booking is a must, due to the pandemic, spaces are limited and health and safety is paramount. Book here.
