Does a dance floor say Strictly to you? Or do you prefer to bust your own moves? The DanceWest Tea Dance with a Twist is a contemporary, dynamic event that has something for everyone. A live jazz band, led by jazz legend Jack Honeyborne, will play hits ranging from 1940s jazz standards to modern pop classics. There will be opportunity to waltz and foxtrot, but more than anything, this intergeneranational event will provide a chance for dance fans of all ages to simply have a bop – together. A total of 60 dancers will also pepper the afternoon with live dance performances. Professional flamenco expert Sam Quy and dance theatre duo Thick & Tight will treat Tea Dancers to performances, alongside Sadler’s Wells’ Company of Elders, DanceWest Bolder not Older group and the DanceWest Youth Company. Participants are encouraged to dress up in bright colours and throw themselves into the DanceWest Tea Dance with a Twist.
