2018 News.

Very pleased for singer Lauren Chinery who, after a very successful tour with Dreamboats And Petticoats and Beauty and The Beast in Doncaster, is about to take the lead role in Miss Nightingale in London's West End. See the Trailerhere

Our first Strictly Valentine dance was fantastic, everyone really got into the spirit and we all had a great time. Next year might be a Late Late Valentine Dance as there is so much else going on around then. You romantic lot!

Congratulations to our former singer Lauren, who is now on The UK tour with Bill Kenwright's 'Dreamboats and Petticoats' and will be coming to a theatre near you soon. Guitarist Adam is off to New Orleans in February with his Trad Jazz band 'The Old Jelly Rollers' Keep and eye out for them too. Michelle has started a new Management business, Melody Management and we are really pleased for her that it has started off so well.

Thanks to Derek, we have a couple more great new numbers, Quickstep to Yakety Sax, and smooth Rumba to All time High from the James Bond film Octopussy, beautifully sung by Michelle.
As a point of interest, Derek was in the band filming for the film Octopussy, but sadly only made it to the cutting room floor!

Great time had by all at the Oval Cricket Ground this week for a 70th Birthday Tea Dance. Everyone picked up the dances really quickly.

Thanks for the suggestions for new music, we now have a great new quickstep, SUDDENLY I SEE by KT Tunstall, and a smooth foxtrot inTHE WAY YOU MAKE ME FEEL from Michael Jackson. Thank you Adam for your arrangements.

Really looking forward to some great new events for us this year including the Braza Club at March, Cambs, and the open air dance on the River Stage at the National Theatre, London.

We have some great new arrangements for the band, B52's Love Shack and Uptown Funk for Cha Cha Cha, and Welcome to Burlesque for a terrific Argentine Tango. Always looking for new ideas for good music to dance to, so keep in touch with your recommendations.

A full dance floor all evening at Cheltenham Town Hall. The Party Samba definitely the highlight! Thanks to everyone involved for a terrific evening. Expertly hosted as always by Beverley Harwood.

July 3rd, 2015 Berkshire Ballroom Summer Ball.
What a fabulous night we had with Amy at Berkshire Ballroom's Summer Ball. Her venue is just right, a little bit of vintage and retro, and a large fully sprung floor.
'thank you again for a fabulous first event with your team on Friday, we've had excellent feedback from our dancers comments including how 'lively' the music was and a refreshing change.'

Another date added to our events guide, Strictly Pakefield with Strictly stars Kevin Clifton & Karen Hauer. 3 nights of dancing workshops, demonstrations and general dancing, and all for only 69pp.

We had a fabulous night at the Concorde Club, Heathrow, huge thanks to all the BA Ballroom dancers for your appreciation at the end of the evening. Hope to see you all again soon.

A wonderful evening at Cheltenham Town Hall for the Christmas ball, brilliantly hosted by Beverley Harwood. Loooking forward to going back in August for the Cheltenham Dance Festival.

The IDTA Congress Party night at the Floral Hall Ballroom, Southport was a wonderful event, so many great comments. Thank you all.

Thanks to Trudi and Monty of Mirrors Dance, for a terrific night of dancing. Great for us to be able to play some Salsa, and more Argentine Tangos than ever. So pleased that you all had such a good time, see you next year.

Fantastic night, with a great Irish Dance Demonstration. Thanks to the North Herts Social Dance Group for booking us once again, and for all your wonderful comments about the band.

Recent Gig, Orsett Hall Hotel, with Peter Nash Dance
A great night with fabulous dance demonstrations from Victor Fung and Anastasia Muravyeva, plus Richard Still and Morgan Hemphill, they put on an amazing show. Hope to be at the next one in September. Contact Peter Nash at

Weekend break at Mundesley
Great to see so many of you there this time. Thanks to Brian (Drums) and Ian (piano) for stepping in at the last minute to help out. Regular drummer Russell couldn't be with us this time as his wife had given birth to their second child only a few days before. We wish them all the best, and look forward to having Russell back with us this week, and at Mundesley in September. Don't forget to book early for Mundesley, as they need bookings in advance to run the event.

Huge thanks to Lisa and Simon of The Ballroom Experience for asking us back, and putting on another great night. They also raised 350 for the St Nicholas Hospice by auctioning off some very tasty looking cakes! Very well done to all.
A big thank you also goes our new vocalist Michelle Hixson, who made a fantastic debut performance with us at this gig. We all look forward to working with her again very soon.
Those of you who have seen the us recently will remember our singer, Lauren, who is now one of the resident entertainers at Hoburne Holiday Centre on the south coast. We wish her all the best, and hope she can get us a gig there soon!
