LGBTQIA+ Inclusive Tea Dances


Sunday Afternoon Tea Dance –
LGBTQIA+ Inclusive and Gender-Neutral Partnering

Sunday 23rd July, 2-5pm (with a Slow Waltz lesson for beginners from 2.15pm)

Join us for a tea dance with social dancing and actual tea and cake! Come and enjoy a gentle afternoon learning some basic social dancing steps with Rachel Sparks who can teach even the most left-footed people. This time we will be learning the Slow Waltz in a beginners’ lesson at 2.15pm. This is an inclusive event for anyone including LGBTQIA+ people and we ask that everyone is respectful to each other. The partnering at this tea dance is gender-neutral, meaning anyone can lead and anyone can follow, and we are completely body positive. The venue is wheelchair-accessible and has gender-neutral toilets. We ask you not to wear high heels as we need to protect the floor! You are invited to bring your own home-made cakes (clearly labelled), to raise money for our nominated charity, Diversity Role Models. At previous tea-dances we have had a good selection of teatime treats including some vegan options.

Tickets: £10 on the door (free entry to members of Essex Church)

Tea dances take place approximately quarterly and our next one will be on 22nd October 2017.
