Full Sevenoaks Diary

 

Welcome to Sevenoaks Community Centre!

Sevenoaks Community Centre is not obvious from the outside as it is right on a corner and tucked behind Travis Perkins builders' merchant, but once inside it all starts to make sense. The main hall has a wooden floor, a high ceiling with several fans to keep you cool, and a large stage area where we put the sound system. There is a hatch through to the kitchen area and we use it to serve refreshments, sweets, and occasional snacks throughout our evenings.

It is an excellent hall with a great atmosphere, and is an ideal place to spend a Friday night dancing.

Next Event

28 Sep - X-Tango Alternative Milonga

No tandas... no traditions... just dance!

Graham Guy will be DJ for the night, so you can expect his usual mix of modern music for tango, including blues, electrotango, rock, electronica, and much more. 

  • 7.45pm - Doors Open
  • 8.00pm - Warm-up Argentine Tango class, including "get you started" for new dancers
  • 8.30pm - X-Tango Alternative Milonga
  • 11.00pm - Close

Our X-Tango Milongas are all about having fun with tango, about the pure enjoyment of this versatile dance style without all the traditions and expectations of a classic milonga. If we play a track that inspires you to dance ballroom or jive rather than tango then just do it... there are no 'rules' at X-Tango that say you can only dance the one style! Ladies... ask the men for dances. Men... find someone you've never asked to dance before and ask them. Dance to music you wouldn't normally choose. Try something new!

The Class

Welcome to Jivebeat!

Beginners and experienced dancers alike are always welcome at Jivebeat. We start every class - whether LeRoc or Tango - with the fundamentals to get you going, then add in something for those of you who want something more challenging. This might include a more complicated step sequence or a greater emphasis on styling and musicality, but whatever it is the emphasis is on having fun whilst you learn. There is no pressure to "get it right" at Jivebeat, so you can learn at your own pace and try things out as and when you are ready.

Timings

The doors open at 7.45pm, and the evening runs until 11pm.
