Welcome to Rhapsody


Rhapsody is a collection of Sunday afternoon Tea Dances/Freestyles and Workshops normally twice a month where carefully selected music tracks allow dancers to indulge in more expressive dancing.

Whether it's Modern Blues, Argentinian Tango, Smooth Jive or any other dance style, the 4 hours of music will encourage dancers to express their musicality in any way they feel like doing so.

In addition, the Rhapsody Plus events include a 2 hour Workshop before the 4 hour Tea Dance/Freestyles, and are held approximately once a month.

The Workshops range from Fundamentals of Modern Blues to Advanced Modern Blues with the resident Dance Instructors but also include special Workshops from some guest instructors.

The Fundamentals Workshops are suitable for beginners to Modern Blues as well as offering plenty of substance for improvers and people can just turn up and pay on the door.
The Advanced Modern Blues Workshops require the dancer to have some proficiency in Modern Blues and must be booked in advance.

 

Note : These events are not Traditional Blues dancing events and although the music played includes some Blues music, it also embraces many other genres.

News

Unfortunately, given the Government restrictions and the increasing rate of COVID infections, I have cancelled all Rhapsody events until the end of the year.
Here's hoping that the New Year brings a less restricted dancing environment.
There are currently no Zoom sessions or Rhapsody events scheduled at the moment owing to lack of demand.
