Great Dance Evening Out
It could have been the Tower Ballroom at Blackpool but no – it was the function room at the Tower Theatre Shorncliff that echoed to the dance music of the Thirties, Forties and Fifties on Sunday 15 July 2012
This evening was the start of something new and going by the numbers attending and the quality of the evenings entertainment, it heralds the start of something big.
The doors opened at 7pm. and within half an hour the dance floor was in full swing. Host DJ Gypsy John played Hot Swing, Jump Jive and Wartime Classics.
The floor was packed when the Cinque Ports Lindy Hoppers Dance Troupe gave a demonstration and taught all those on the floor a few simple steps of thirties dance routines.
Cabaret Time was another exciting feature of the evening
with “Helles Belles”, the Canterbury belles, putting on a fine performance of synchronised dancing.
Special guest star Will Grover sang Michael Double’ numbers to the delight of the ladies and DJ Gypsy John demonstrated his dancing prowess with three other members of the Cinque Ports Lindy Hoppers. His potted history of some of the early swing dancing steps was also very enlightening.
Sue Stember Morsia, who promoted the evening, has lined
up many more such dance evenings throughout the period to Christmas. The next one, which features the amazing Colrose Seven Jazz Band playing Swing, Jump Jive and Rat Pack Classics, will be on Sunday 5 August 2012
This will be followed by Gypsy John the following two Sundays (12th. & 19th. August 2012).
