1st Year Anniversary Celebrations for DTWE
Presentations were made to all those that were with us on our very first session and here are Wendy & Tina with Ursula and Val. Both are very accomplished Sequence dancers who attend many classes around the Exeter and Exmouth area.
We still like to keep these photo's here as it is thanks to all these dancers that we are still here now.
Here are Wendy & Tina with John & Pat Harris (Wendy's parents) who helped us to get started with a loan of equipment for the music. We have also learnt so much from John & Pat, who run a successful Tea Dance also at America Hall, Pinhoe.
We were very proud to present Annette, Pete and Karen their first-year certificates and unfortunately Pete's wife Carol wasn't there and missed the celebrations but all 4 were complete beginners to Ballroom and Latin dancing and it is now a big part of their week to come to us for the class each week.
Both Ursula and Mel came to us as singles and partnered up to dance together, both had dance Sequence backgrounds and were happy to learn the Ballroom steps together. So don't worry about being on your own, there is always someone to dance with at our classes.
Another couple that came to us as beginners, Martin had danced before and was taught by his mother but with his wife, Julia, wanted to learn all those dances that we see at popular social dances.
All these dancers started with Dance TW Exeter in 2016 and we are so proud that they are still with our group and still learning! We welcome any ability and whether you have dance experience or not we can help you get dancing again.
With COVID-19 causing so many disruptions at present we have made a decision to stop until we can all return and able to dance with everyone.
It is very difficult to dance around a room making sure you are 2 metres away from everyone - all Ballroom dances use all of the room, corners get congested and the middle of the room is used constantly to avoid those that are sometimes slower around the room.
