Dancing - Ballroom

The Ballroom Dancing Group meet fortnightly at 2pm on Fridays at High Lane Village Hall in 16 week sessions.

The dancing comprises BALLROOM, LATIN, and a little SEQUENCE. We aim for a friendly atmosphere and relaxed, enjoyable social dancing, with some guidance given within the group.

The group is open to couples from High Lane U3A, and also from neighbouring U3As.

If interested and wanting to try us out, please contact Walter Mason or Ann Reynolds.


The ballroom dancing group has enjoyed good attendances for our pleasurable mix of ballroom and latin dancing. Sam and Walter have provided the music and some instruction, Sam on Foxtrot and Tango, and Walter on Argentine Tango, and we also do a few sequence dances and the occasional line dance.

APRIL 2018

After recent helpful video demonstrations of foxtrot and waltz steps, we ended our Spring session, with a presentation to Sam and Irene, and followed that with a group photograph. In the Summer we now reduce to monthly meetings, but do intend to follow one meeting with a group meal out.


In the summer months, ballroom dancing is scaled down to once a month, and more of the slower dances are being played in our current hot weather!


Sam returned from summer caravanning to restart alternating with Walter, and provide welcome variety in music and a fresh approach to learning new steps and refreshing known ones.
