Rivoli Ballroom Social Dance

On the first Sunday of every month there is a social dance held at one of the most famous ballrooms in the South. We can highly recommend that you go along to this social dance. It's a great place for you to practice and enjoy your dancing. You will see this Ballroom as a back drop to many adverts, films and music videos as well as photo shoots. It starts at 7.30pm and costs 6 per person.
The address is:
350 Brockley Rd
London SE4 2BY
There are already a group of you from the classes that go along and if our schedule permits it we also try to join in the evening. Hopefully see you all there.

We can happily report that they both won their competitions on the day. This is from dancing through many heats throughout the year to qualify for the finals at Blackpool. An inspiration for you all, maybe something to work for?
