Sunday Afternoon Tea Dances
Sundays 22nd October 2017, 11th February 2018, 6th May 2018, 2-5pm
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 who can teach even the most left-footed people (there will be a beginners dance lesson at 2.15pm – in October we’ll be learning the jive). This is an inclusive event for anyone including LGBTQI+ 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).
