Latest News

As we move into March 2021 ... at last there is some really positive news its great to hear so many of you are receiving your 'jabs' (some even booked second ones) ~ we have begun planning our “Southern Stomp” 26th Year celebrations and a return to our Line Dance Club as we know it; as soon as we have agreed key dates and availability - we'll let you know.  It's going to be a real challenge for everyone starting back (including us), we've all got to find our feet again, remember the steps and try to get them all in the right order.. still that's going to be part of the fun.... we're all in this together!

When do classes restart?... we know you're busting to know we haven't decided yet - because whilst there is now a Gov. Road Map out of lock-down (and that's to be celebrated - lets hope it doesn't shift back!) - we want to plan so everyone can re-start (not leaving anyone behind trying to playing catch up) and for everyone to enjoy the return, not feeling pressured to 'keep up' or losing their confidence in the rush.

Let's hope the vaccine roll-out continues on its current trajectory...  and we can all return safely in good time.

March's Update:   Just a quick reminder of our weekly “Southern Stomp” Zoom meetings ~ they're great fun and a chance to 'catch up' and see one another ~ our next Quiz is Wednesday(s) at 7pm (invites in the usual way via email).

March 2021 announcements:  – It's absolutely fabulous to keep hearing on our “Southern Stomp” WhatsApp group - many of you have either had your first jab or appointments being made...  and actually some now with their second one booked - the vaccine updates are wonderful news, but, it's obviously going to take months for us all to be in a situation where our three areas of  concern need to be met:-   1. Hall availability: under review - we're in regular contact, so we'll know when they are ready.   2. Insurance - ensure insurance cover is available; and,  3. Government Regulations: work in accordance with latest Government guidelines.

We miss you all madly – the dancing, laughter/chattering, the events and trips out… they’ll all return in good time, albeit slowly at first; we want to make sure we’re all in a healthy place and can enjoy them together WHEN the time is right.  Until we’re back, we’ll keep the weekly Zoom meetings going (every Wed at 7pm) – your feedback and messages of support have been really lovely so - thank you ALL… until we can get back on the dance floor together ~  let’s all keep safe and well  ~ Phil & Joy
