Shall We Dance Academy announces new classes

October 7, 2013

Shall We Dance, Newry has announced it will hold new beginners social dance classes for all those local men and women who have made it their goal to learn how to dance and get in shape.

Commencing on Wednesday 9th October at 7:30pm – 8:30pm in Thee1 Salon, 45 Summerhill, Warrenpoint, it will be an enjoyable 10 week course learning the Slow Waltz, Quickstep and Jive.

Each class is priced at just £6 per person.

Shall We Dance, Newry was launched last year by local dancing supremos Gerald and Patricia Malone from Newry, who have already run several very successful classes in the Newry & Mourne area.

Gerald and Patricia have won Ballroom and Latin American dancing competitions throughout the UK and Ireland so their experience has left previous groups of beginner dancers with some nifty moves to show off wherever they go.

The Newry duo, who have been dancing for over 25 years competitively and socially, boast All-Ireland honours amongst their impressive array of medals and trophies.

Dancing is a great way to stay in shape and enjoy yourself but Gerald insists it is also a fantastic way to make new friends.

“We started dancing nearly 25 years ago and since then we have met so many amazing people and have forged life-long friendships with people from across the country,” he said.

“A lot of people want to live a healthier lifestyle, learn to dance and make new friends. Our class will let you do all three and the most important thing is to enjoy yourself.”

The couple were delighted with how their previous social dance classes throughout Newry & Mourne have fared.

“It was fantastic,” insisted Gerald. “The couples have enjoyed themselves tremendously. Some were there to learn the ‘first dance’ before they get married, others were there to enjoy the social element but all just really enjoyed themselves.”

Spaces for the dance classes are limited so it is advised you register your interest early to avoid disappointment.
