More info:  Every age from babes-in-arms to grandparents are in attendance, live music, instructions for all of the dances and very patient experienced dancers to help you get through the sets if you haven’t done them before. There is usually a canteen available with snack type food, the event is smoke-free and no alcohol is available. If you have any budding musicians in your family there is usually an opportunity for them to perform when the pros take a break between sets.
