THERE’S a chance for people in Hartlepool to make friends and learn new moves at regular Social Dance sessions.

Run by Hartlepool Borough Council’s Sport and Physical Activity Team, the sessions offer people a chance to socialise whilst a qualified teacher takes dancers through classic Ballroom, Latin and Sequence steps in a welcoming and relaxed environment.

The sessions take place from 1pm – 3pm, at Brierton Sports Centre every Friday and at the Borough Hall every Wednesday.

Maxine Fenwick, one of Hartlepool Borough Council’s Sports and Physical Activity Officers, said: “Our social dances offer the opportunity for people of all ages and abilities to meet and enjoy dancing whilst having fun.

“Don’t worry if you’ve never set foot on a dance floor before – these sessions are tailored to suit beginners right through to more advanced dancers.”

Each session costs £3. For further information, please contact 01429 284054 or email
