Our congratulations to the Club for Dancing here in Thurles who will celebrate their 40th Anniversary on Saturday February 12th next. The Club will mark the occasion with an event in their usual stomping ground, The Premier Ballroom in Thurles.
All current and former members of the Club are automatically invited to attend this celebratory event and if you are a non member and feel you would like to join in their celebrations “there is a welcome on the mat“.
Two bands will be installed on the night and celebrations begin with dancing to ‘Checkers‘, starting at 8.30pm sharp and continuing until 10.30pm.
Following a short break, dancing will continue from 10.40pm to 12.30 to the music of ‘Tony Stevens and The Rusty Roosters‘.
Admission price: €10.
Note: The club has also just launched their new website with details of their dance calender for the year. You can view this website by clicking here.
The club have been running dance classes for beginners, in social dancing, since 1994. The six-week’s course, from 8.30pm to 10pm each Tuesday night, costs a total of just €20 and teaches the basic steps of the foxtrot, old time waltz and quickstep. They hold one set of classes in the Springtime and one set again in the Autumn. These have proved to be a great success and are normally attended by approximately 70/100 helpers, teachers and beginners. Great for the fitness and an ideal opportunity for young couples getting married this year to prepare for that first solo dance on their wedding day.
Why not join them for their next set of dance classes, beginning on 1st February 2011 and commencing at 8.30pm sharp.
