Due to the impending merger of Worthing College and Chichester College there has been a management decision to turn the Warren into a Gymnastics Centre. This means there will be equipment permanently erected and specialist, sprung gymnastics flooring in place. Worthing and Chichester Colleges are centres of sporting excellence and the addition of a gymnastics facility will be a great asset to their students.
We intend to continue with our nights and return to using local venues on an ad-hoc basis - just as we did before we took on the Warren. We are actively looking for alternative venues for our classes and weekend dances. Please send us your suggestions for venues in and around Worthing. Also we would love to hear about suitable venues elsewhere in East and West Sussex.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us and the Warren over the last four and a half years. Especially those who helped prepare the venue for opening and keep it running.
We are now looking forward to a new chapter in our dance journey.
Please note, our Drill Hall dances will continue as usual.
Sat 26th Jan 2019
The Steyning Centre
A fabulous night of dancing with a nod towards the traditions of Burns Night. Please try to add something Scottish to your outfit. But don't worry too much as it's mostly about the dancing.
There will be Haggis. This will receive a traditional address from Andy McGregor, followed by the traditional "Toast to the Lassies" with a wee dram of Scotch. There may even be a "lassie" who wishes to respond - please let us know if you would like to be that "lassie".
Future Drill Hall Saturday Dance dates for 2019
12th January, 9th February, 9th March, 13th April, 11th May, 8th June, 13th July, 10th August, 7th September, 12th October, 9th November, 14th December.
Thank you to everyone who came dancing over the holidays. To quote Kermit the Frog:
"Well, I have a dream too, but it’s about music and dancing and making people happy. It’s the kind of dream that gets better the more people you share it with. And I found a whole group of friends who have the same dream, and that makes us sort of like a family."
N.B. For January and February 2019 we will only be running weekend events - our classes will re-open in the spring.
