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.

Absolute Beginner Classes

For the last few years we have run two cycles of classes each Autumn for those completely new to ballroom or Latin dancing. We have just completed these classes for 2022.

We will be deciding in the summer whether it is practical to run the classes in 2023, depending on numbers etc.

You can register an interest in joining these classes should we run them again by clicking on the button below.
