Jim`s Candlelight Dancing
Every fortnight since October 1992 I have run a Big Ballroom Mixed Social Dance in the City`s largest public hall, The Corn Exchange. The dances are popular and always very well attended with the hall filled to near maximum on most evenings.
The accent of my dances is the fun aspect of dancing, rather than on stiff `technique`. Since 80% of our pleasure in life comes from our own communication with other people I also put the spotlight on `mixer`dances and making friends.
Both singles and couples of all ages 20 to 80 are very welcome. Singles are guaranteed as many partners and dances as they can handle, not only because some dances are made progressive, but also because I constantly announce that every dance is a `General Invitation` - which means the ladies are welcome to ask the Gents, as much as the other way round (And the guys love to be asked!)
Some of the more `switched on` dance schools in the area recommend their pupils to attend my dances for two reasons:
1. It confirms to their pupils the reason for putting in the effort at the lessos is to have fun - and it lets them experience what real dance fun with nice people is really like!
2. It confirms to their pupils how muc more there is to learn because we actually cover averagely 23 different dances each evening, using 65 different tunes. The pupils can see for themselves the more they know the more fun they will have and that there is always something new to learn.
