Who we are?
We are a Community Organisation formed in 2007 and run by a small Committee of Volunteers as a Dance / Exercise Class for the over 50's, promoting fitness through movement and dance. We have 30 members of varying ages.
Classes are held every Wednesday morning at Chesterton Community Centre from 10.30am to noon costing £3 per session with an annual membership fee of £5.
Your first lesson is free and so come along and enjoy.
Each class is choreographed by Lucy who is very patient and goes over each movement step by step. Recently we have danced to a number of Beatle songs, “Lola She Was a Show Girl” from Cocacabana and “I Love to Boogie” from Billy Elliot. At the moment we are learning a very dramatic contemporary dance to “Radio Active” by the Imagine Dragons but on a quieter note we have just finished the steps to “Singing In the Rain” where we were able to incorporate umbrellas into the dance routine.
Because of Lucy's association with Defy Gravity we have for sometime been included in their shows, the last one being at the Mitchell Arts Centre in July 2013 where a number of our ladies danced to a medley of Abba hits in their production of "Impact".
As a group we have also performed in the Dance Spectacular which the Regent Theatre produces each year.
We have 2/3 ladies on our Committee who organise different social events and this year some of our ladies have been to:- Salford Quays to visit Lowry Centre, Media City and Coronation Street Studio, Coventry for shopping and Cathedral, Christmas shopping in York, Emma Bridgewater Tour & Lunch and Walks around Westport Lake.
Visits to the theatre are also arranged to see Uncle Eric at the New Vic Theatre and also the Regent Theatre to see Dreams & Petticoats, The Nutcracker, Black Coffee and Jersey Boys in the planning stage.
We have occasional lunches together and Christmas lunches each year. We enjoyed our Christmas lunch at Brunswicks Restaurant, Newcastle, last December and are looking forward to another great meal at Alsager Golf Club in December.
