Finding good dance venues is a perennial problem for organisers. Dancing in a pub with a nice atmosphere, a good sound system, and a good bar serving food and drinks is often an ideal situation for the organisers and dancers, but unfortunately it is often not profitable for the venue if people are there to dance rather than to drink or eat. We are lucky that our current venue, the Crown and Anchor, are very supportive of us. However, we would really encourage you to support venues like this as much as possible by buying the occasional drink/coffee/snack/meal/dessert/etc. You don't have to spend a fortune - every little helps.

It's in all of our interests to support our venues - and if they can make money on food and drinks, that can actually offset the cost of the venue hire, and in turn offset the price of your entrance fee... so it's almost like getting free drinks, really! :)


We will be teaching at these forthcoming events:

16-18th September 2016
The Brighton Balboa weekender. Two days of workshops with social dancing and live bands.
