Workshops Producing Great Results for Come Dancing events

The dance workshops that have been run on Saturdays during February and March this year by Michael Smallworth, a London-based professional dance tutor and choreographer, are proving hugely successful. Michael has been assisted by local dance tutors, including Kirstie Anderson of Stornoway based company, Isle Dance ( Four dances are being taught in four separate workshops: Jive/Jitterbug, Cha Cha Cha, Waltz and Charleston. For those less energectic, these promise to be fun events to watch!

The final "Come Dancing with the Stornoway Big Band" events will be held in the Dark Island Hotel, Benbecula on the 24th of March and the Cabarfeidh Hotel, Stornoway on the 31st of March. Stornoway Big Band will perform numbers covering the entire period of Big Band dance music, from Charleston to Rock'n'Roll. Some numbers will feature exhibition dancers, others will be for you to demonstrate what you have learned in the workshops, or just to free dance - lots of fun for all ages!

There will be prizes for the best couples, adjudicated by Michael Smallworth and the exhibition dancers. There will also be a raffle on the night.

These events are expected to sell out so if you have not managed to get your tickets yet, now's the time! Full details are at the following link -
