Dance

Originally set up in 1998, Cheek2Cheek is a non-profit making social dance club for the LGBTQ community. Our aim is to provide a relaxed and friendly environment in which people can learn to dance and also socialise.

 

We cover many Ballroom dances (Waltz, Quickstep, Foxtrot, Tango, and Viennese Waltz) and Latin dances (Rumba, Cha Cha Cha, Paso Doble, Salsa, Samba and Jive). We also learn sequence dances and line dances.

Classes are held at Court Farm Studios, East Street,  Falmer - see Side Bar for directions
