Taster Events

Dance Fit - new taster session.

If you saw us at Pride with our fabulous routine or always fancy having a go when you watch a dance video, this is for you.

We are organising four taster sessions on October 5/12/19/26 from 7-8pm at Court Farm Studios, East St, Falmer. For detailed directions by bus and train see the Dance page under ‘our sports’.

Cost £5 per session. If the classes are popular they may become a regular BLAGSS activity.

Welcome to your dance fit class, Looking for a way to increase your stamina? Interested in doing that to music? Jo from Savoy Entertainment will teach you some easy steps to get you moving to some great music! Not interested in learning with a partner? Perfect because you don’t need one! Let’s have fun, one week putting a few Strictly steps with various other moves to create our own routines, another learning a ready made routine like a Charleston Stroll to get that heart rate up!’

Pickleball - one of the fastest growing sports

What is Pickleball

Pickleball is a fun sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis. Played both indoors or outdoors on a badminton-sized court and a slightly modified tennis net. Two or four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball, over a net.

BLAGSS is providing taster sessions for this new and exciting sport at Stanley Deason Leisure Centre, Wilson Ave, Brighton for four weeks on Monday October 17/24/31 and November 7. Two sessions are provided on each date 7-8pm and 8-9pm. The sessions on October 17/24 are FREE, the sessions on October 24/November 7 will be £4 per hour. Equipment will be available to use. Tuition and explanation of the rules will be available. Check out the short videos below.

Sign up for the sessions below - please note that you may only sign up for ONE SESSION ON EACH DATE in order to maximise spaces for members.
